Atlus has released another trailer in its character trailer series for the upcoming visual novel rpg, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. Today's trailer showcases Ukon, a cunning mercenery who's full of surprises.
The stereotypical mercenary is an unrefined hired hand who has no qualms about shedding blood if the price is right. However, the smooth talking Ukon is an exception. Yes, he's a mercenary, but he cares about the common people and is well respected by those under his command. Haku and Kuon encounter him fairly on early in the game, and Ukon convinces them to help on a simple escort job. Sounds simple, right? Well, it turns out this "simple escort" job is more of a "fend off dangerous bandits" sort of job. Regardless of this slight miscommunication, Ukon takes a liking to the strange duo and will act as a mentor figure to them. Of course, there's much more to Ukon that will be revealed as events unfold.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception releases on the 23rd of May on PS4 and PS Vita. The game will be available in North America on PS4 and PS Vita in both physical and digital formats, and while the European PS4 version will be available in both physical and digital formats, the PS Vita version will be digital-only. The PS4 version will be priced at $49.99 and the PS Vita version at $39.99.
