Today Atlus has announced via press release that Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth will be releasing on September 5th in both North America and Europe. North American pre-orders will receive a pillow case featuring Yamato priestesses Uruuru and Saraana. This pillow case looks pretty sweet and will fit most standard size pillows.

Here are some screenshots from the game:

Here is more information about the game straight from the press release:

After the events of Mask of Deception, the Yamato Empire is now ruled with an iron fist by a ruthless usurper who seeks to subjugate all before him. It’s up to a couple of familiar faces to band together against the might of the Imperial army, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance as nations and generals must pick a side to fight with in this perilous civil war. Secrets will be revealed, friendships will be tested, and battles will be fought. Will peace and order be restored or will victory at any cost be the beginning of the end?
Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth features:
  • An Epic ScopeMask of Truth is an 80+ hours long experience that features more fascinating characters, dastardly creatures, exotic locales, and important battles than ever before!
  • A Story at Its End – The rich Utawarerumono visual novel tradition continues in Mask of Truth. The landscape has changed and there are new nations, people, and truths to discover during this uncertain time. The dramatic events of Mask of Deception have set up the story for a climactic and thrilling conclusion in Mask of Truth.
  • Enhanced SRPG Battle Mechanics – Since war is on everyone’s agenda, expect plenty more battles to partake in. Turn-based tactics make a return and an updated battle system make fights both strategic and fast paced! Utilize new extended Action Chains, a higher-level cap, and more to gain the upper hand on the battlefield. Additionally, certain characters can team up and dish out some devastating offense with Co-op Final and Co-op Chain attacks. Oh, there’s also now a Mock Battle mode that can be used to practice new combat tactics and gain EXP/BP.
  • A Fantastical Atmosphere – The gorgeous art style, beautifully rendered cutscenes, and rousing score (recorded and remastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and EastWest Studios) make a return. Dive into a magical storybook that comes alive before your very eyes!
Pre-orders and limited launch editions will contain a collector’s slip case box and a double-sided pillowcase bonus item that features the mysterious Yamato priestesses Uruuru and Saraana (only available in the Americas).
Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth will be released in the Americas on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in both physical and digital formats on Sept. 5. The European PS4 version will have a physical release, but the PlayStation Vita version will be digital-only. The game will retail for $49.99 on the PS4 and $39.99 on the PlayStation Vita.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.




  • DOUGHNUTS ARE AMAZING

    I’ll definitely be getting this. Hopefully someone will pick up both White Album 2 and Dungeon Travelers 2-2 next.

    • Panpopo

      White Album 2 will probably either be Mangagamer or Sekai Project. People request that game to Mangagamer in their surveys all the time, and Sekai got Baldr’s Sky so it would not be a surprise if they get another big release like white album as well.

  • Mr0303

    That’s a nice bonus. Shame about the censorship.

  • Panpopo

    I hope the preorder bonus includes the vita version as well, as the picture only lists PS4.
