Atlas USA has put out a press release covering the very soon launch of their visual novel, Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth. The game is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on September 5th, only a few short days away. It will be available in both physical and digital formats for $49.99 and $39.99 respectively “with commensurate European pricing”. Originally developed and published by AQUAPLUS, the title will also have its original Japanese audio. The game’s 80+ hours of gameplay will keep you busy for quite some time.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth Launch Edition comes in a nice box with a copy of the game and a bonus slip case and double-sided pillowcase. The pillowcase is adorned with two character designs (one on each side). The characters featured on the pillowcase are the mysterious Yamato priestesses, Uruuru and Saraana.
“Negotiating alliances, battling enemies, and juggling relationships is a lot of work, so we encourage you to lay down and rest your head on the adorable bonus item to stay fresh for the journey ahead.”
