Utawarerumono: ZAN Announced for PlayStation 4 Release Later This Year

Utawarerumono, a visual-novel come turn-based strategy game, has long since been available for the PlayStation Vita in Japan, and more recently in the west with PlayStation 4 re-releases, but publisher NIS America have announced that the franchises first-ever action-game will be released later this year onto the PlayStation 4.

Announced as Utawarerumono: ZAN this game captures a glimpse into what destiny has in store for Haku, and recreates the adventure in a combat-focused game that looks similar to the combat found within SENRAN KAGURA games.  As part of this ‘action-adventure’ experience on the PlayStation 4, Haku’s story is retold through fully-animated cutscenes (another series first) as he uncovers the truth behind his mysterious origins.

Additionally players will be able to play as over 12 characters that each bring something special to the fight, like the princess Rulutieh and her pet Cocopo, or the magical twins Uruuru and Saraana. That’s not all; as Utawarerumono: ZAN will also feature 4-player online multiplayer mode.

In addition to the announcement of Utawarerumono: ZAN, NIS America also revealed a Collector’s Edition for North America, although it is likely this edition will also be made available within Europe through the NIS America Europe store.
