Atlus has released a new trailer for its upcoming visual novel Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. The trailer introduces us to the world of Utawarerumono, more specifically, the Yamato Empire capital.
A big part of the game takes place in the lands ruled by the mighty Yamato Empire, so it would be wise for the protagonist Haku to learn about the nation's culture and customs. His caretaker Kuon, along with all the friends he meets on his journey, is more than happy to introduce him to the strange things that populate the world.
For example, he learns that "woptors" are ostrich-like animals that are used as military mounts and beasts of burden, and that "amamunii" is a delicious overstuffed wrap that can be dipped in a number of sauces. He's also introduced to "eldcraft" devices such as a massive ship that moves without rowers and a water mill that's
engineered with seemingly advanced technology.
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.
