Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Ukon Character Trailer Released Alongside Launch DLC Details

ATLUS, via European distributor Deep Silver, have today released a new character based gameplay trailer for the upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception.

In this latest trailer potential players learn more about the cunning mercenary who, as ATLUS describes, as a mercenary for hires who cares about the common people.

The stereotypical mercenary is an unrefined hired hand who has no qualms about shedding blood if the price is right. However, the smooth talking Ukon is an exception. Yes, he’s a mercenary, but he cares about the common people and is well respected by those under his command. Haku and Kuon encounter him fairly on early in the game, and Ukon convinces them to help on a simple escort job. Sounds simple, right? Well, it turns out this “simple escort” job is more of a “fend off dangerous bandits” sort of job. Regardless of this slight miscommunication, Ukon takes a liking to the strange duo and will act as a mentor figure to them. Of course, there’s much more to Ukon that will be revealed as events unfold…

Key Features:

  • An Unforgettable Story – Mask of Deception offers a story-rich visual novel experience (40-50+ hours long) that lets players shape the future of a fully realized world filled with fantastical lore and history! Mask of Deception sets up the story for a thrilling conclusion in Mask of Truth, and we’ll reveal more information about the final game at a later date.
  • An Active SRPG Battle System – Players will need to defend Haku and his friends by engaging in intense SRPG combat with the various hostiles that populate the world. The battle system is a thrilling mix of turn-based tactics and Attack Chain mechanics. Players can remain active during combat by successfully completing timing-based charging rings to execute critical attacks or vital dodges/blocks.
  • Fully Fleshed Out Combat – Unique combat features such as the rewind function, elemental affinities/weaknesses, unique character skills, and more add a layer of depth to fights. It’ll take true tactical acumen to emerge victorious in battle!
  • Breathtaking Art – With a stunning art style and beautifully rendered cutscenes, the game is a feast for the eyes for Japanese visual novel and anime aficionados!
  • Beautiful Songs and a Thrilling Score – The rousing music, recorded and remastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and EastWest Studios, is a perfect soundtrack to accompany a great adventure.

In addition to the new trailer ATLUS went on to reveal that a small portion of DLC content will be made available to purchase on the games launch day (which is currently set for the 23rd May 2017). A list of content is as follows:
