New Utawarerumono action and story-focused titles in development

Action game to be officially announced in spring 2018.


Aquaplus president Naoya Shimokawa shared new details on the future of the Utawarerumono series in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, revealing that several titles in the series are in development.

Get the interview tidbits below.

  • We currently have three or four Utawarerumono titles in development.
  • One of those projects is code-named “UTZ.” It’s an action game. Information will gradually be released starting around spring 2018. We want to broaden the scope of Utawarerumono and get a lot of people to play the series.
  • For those who like the grand story of Utawarerumono, a title with a plenty enjoyable scenario is also in development. The scenario writers that worked on Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth and Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception are participating, and we’re trying to upgrade the graphics. It is being developed on our company’s largest budget yet.

If you missed it earlier today, Aquaplus also announced a remake of the original Utawarerumono: Chiriyuku Mono he no Komoriuta for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Read about that here.

Thanks, Ryokutya2089.
