Atlus USA has released another character introduction for the upcoming release of the Aquaplus-developed SRPG Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. This time the focus is on the game’s main heroine Kuon, whom rescues the game’s protagonist within the opening hours of the title.

Here is a description of Kuon, via an Atlus USA press release:

While the mysterious amnesiac Haku is the main character in Mask of Deception, he would be monster food if it wasn’t for the adorable, yet strong, Kuon. She’s a mysterious traveler who rescues Haku in the beginning of the game and eventually becomes his “guardian.” While not much is known about her past, she’s an intelligent and free-spirited woman who’s an apothecary by trade. The polar opposite of Haku, Kuon is a responsible person who always gets the job done. Oh, and she’s quite useful during battles too. She a scrappy fighter who prefers the intimacy of hand-to-hand combat, and her knowledge of herbology and medicines lets her act as an effective healer. Kuon is definitely someone Haku needs to have on his side for the events to come…

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception releases 23rd May for both PS4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe. In the US, both versions are physical and all launch copies come with a compendium artbook bonus. In Europe, the PS4 version is getting a standard physical release, whereas the PS Vita version is digital only.
