Atlus USA has announced that RPG/VN hybrid Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception will launch on May 23 for North America and Europe. The publisher also posted a new story trailer as well as a first-print bonus artbook (only available in the Americas).
You can find a detailed overview and some screenshots of the game here in the original announcement post.
Since the gorgeous art style of Mask of Deception brings a world filled with intriguing characters, rich history, and beautiful lands to life, it's only right that we created bonus items that celebrate the game's bewitching aesthetics. Here's what you'll get when you pre-order or otherwise grab a limited launch edition of the game (launch edition currently applicable to the Americas only):
- Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Compendium Art Book - This 50-page softcover art book contains art/information about some of the unlikely heroes, fantastical creatures, exotic locales and more! The book also features concept art and developer notes that show a glimpse of the creative process behind building a mystical world. Oh, and it also includes information about the mighty Yamato Empire and its surrounding nations that'll serve as a guide to those unfamiliar with the Utawarerumono series.
