Known in Japan as Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen (roughly translates to Utawarerumono: False Mask), Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a visual novel and strategy RPG hybrid. Players take on the role of Haku, an amnesiac who awakes atop a snowy mountain with a splitting headache. He’s found by the obligatorily beautiful Kuon, who gives him his name and takes him under her care. Their journey inevitably pulls Haku into the potentially deadly politics of the nation Yamato. While it’s partially turn-based, combat requires some active attention and timing. Being good at it requires some planning, but also a degree of frenetic skill.
See the story trailer below. Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is out sometime this year, States-side, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
