Atlus has released a new trailer for its upcoming visual novel Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth. The trailer focuses on the enhanced battle system of Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, and how much it has changed when compared to Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception.
In Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, civil war is on everyone's lips now that a usurper has seized the Yamato throne and seeks to conquer all before him. With a world thrown into turmoil and chaos, you can bet that plenty of scores will be settled on the battlefield. Nations and generals will be scrambling to either join the Yamato Empire or resist its iron grasp, so expect a fight to break out at any moment. The familiar faces you'll be guiding are now seasoned adventurers, so they've definitely learned a thing or two about combat.
Because Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth takes place around the time of the civil war, the game will feature a lot of more battles than its predecessor. The combat system will also feature some enhancements, including Extended Action Chains, a higher-level cap, and the introduction of Co-op Final and Co-op Chain attacks add a new layer of strategy to the turn-based battles.
If you think you need to practice and improve your skills, Mask of Truth will feature training exercises where you can expand your tactical skill set in a jiffy. Gain experience and BP with the Red vs. White mock battle mode or test your military aptitude through various tough challenges in Munechika's Trials mode.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth releases on the 5th of September for PS4 and PS Vita. The game will be priced at $49.99 for PS4 and $39.99 for PS Vita, and it will be available in both physical and digital editions, with the exception of the PS Vita version in Europe which will be digital-only.
