Atlus has released an Imperial City Trailer for the upcoming release of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. This is great for folks that are not familiar with anime adaptation as it helps you get to know a little more about the world this game is based in.
Here is some information about the trailer straight from the press release:
A big part of the game takes place in the lands ruled by the mighty Yamato Empire, so it would be wise for the protagonist Haku to learn about the nation’s culture and customs. His caretaker Kuon, along with all the friends he meets on his journey, is more than happy to introduce him to the strange things that populate the world. For example, he learns that “woptors” are ostrich-like animals that are used as military mounts and beasts of burden, and that “amamunii” is a delicious overstuffed wrap that can be dipped in a number of sauces. He’s also introduced to “eldcraft” devices such as a massive ship that moves without rowers and a water mill that’s engineered with seemingly advanced technology.
Haku will eventually make his way to the Imperial Capital where there’s plenty of work for him to do. Although he’d much rather sit around and be lazy, the people need his help! However, that doesn’t mean he can’t find the time to indulge in the sights, sounds, and flavors of Yamato’s biggest metropolis. From the famed Hakurokaku Inn to the numerous shops that line the streets, there’s tons to do when you’re a stranger in the big city.
Here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure:
Both Utawarerumono games will be released in North America on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in both physical and digital formats. The European PS4 version will have a physical release, but the PS Vita release will be digital-only. Mask of Deception will release on May 23, and the game’s direct sequel, Mask of Truth will release later in the year. Both will retail for $49.99 on the PS4 , and the PS Vita version will be $39.99 (with commensurate European prices).
