Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth has a new enhanced battle system to boast about. There will be a lot more battles, extended Action Chains, a higher level cap, and the introduction of a Co-op Final and Co-op Chain attacks. More about that below.
From Press Release:
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.
So what’s different about the battle system in Mask of Truth? First, there’s going to be a lot of more battles. 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. 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. Plan everything right and you’ll be using devastating offensive attacks to wipe the floor with your enemies in no time.
Need more practice? No worries! New game modes featuring training exercises 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.

 

The title is coming on September 5th both physically and digital for the PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
