A new trailer for Utawarerumono: Mask Of Truth is out today! 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 thrust into turmoil and chaos, you can bet that plenty of scores will be settled on the battlefield.
So what’s different about The Mask of Truth’s battle system? Well, for one, there’s going to be a lot more battles; nations and generals will be scrambling to either join the Yamato Empire, or resist its iron grasp, so expect lots of fights, a lot of the time.
The familiar faces you’ll be guiding are now seasoned adventurers, so they’ve definitely learned the ropes for combat. Extended Action Chains, a higher-level cap, and the introduction of Co-op Final and Co-op Chain attacks adds more strategy to the turn-based battles. Plan well, and you’ll wipe the floor with your enemies.
There’s also several new game modes, featuring training exercises that can expand your tactical skill set. 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 is an 80 hour long visual novel, with war themed turn based gameplay mechanics. It will release on September 5, 2017, with its original Japanese audio, on PS4, both physically and digitally, for £40.
