Atlus today announced that the visual novel and strategy RPG Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth will be coming to PS Vita and PS4 in North & South America and Europe on September 5, 2017.
In the Americas, Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth will be available for PS Vita and PS4 in both physical and digital formats while the European PS4 version will have a physical release, but the PS Vita version will be digital-only.
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).
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?
