Aquaplus and Atlus combine tactical RPG combat with visual novel storytelling once again in Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception. RPGamer examines this first part of a duology before the concluding Mask of Truth arrives in September.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception
The first part of Utawarerumono duology, and second game in the series overall.
With the pair of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth nearly ready for their PC releases, the pricing for both titles has been announced. A new trailer was also released on the game’s Steam page.
DMM Games and ShiraVN have partnered with Aquaplus to bring Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth to PC. Both games will be available through Steam in just a few weeks.
Aquaplus has released three Utawarerumono titles on iOS and Android. The free mobile releases are straight visual novel versions, bypassing the game’s tactical RPG portions.
The RPG Elements column returns for a couple of imported JRPG art books. This edition looks at the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks: Alrest Record and the Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception / Mask of Truth Official Visual Collection.
