The Entertainment Software Rating Association Board has rated Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception for PS Vita under Sega publishing.


Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a localized title for Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen, which has been previously referred to as Utawarerumono: The False Faces or Utawarerumono: False Mask.

The rating suggests Sega, or possibly its subsidiary Atlus, is localizing the Aquaplus-developed visual novel / RPG. In Japan, it was released for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PlayStation 3.

Trophy list (for the ones who care):

According to an older Gematsu-article it seems to be some kind of simulation RPG:

Quote

Adventure Parts
During these parts, the game’s story will progress through dialogue with other characters. You may be asked about your destination on the way, and various events can occur based on the destination.

Simulation Parts
From adventure parts, you’ll go into battle-based simulation parts.

  1. Before the Battle – Before the battle, select the characters that you want to participate. Depending on the stage, some characters might already be decided.
  2. Battle – Characters perform actions in turn-based battle, going around starting from characters with high agility. Players should utilize each character’s attributes and strong points while proceeding to guarantee a successful battle.
  3. Battle End – The battle ends when the player meets the conditions set for victory. When the end of a battle is reached, the characters that participated will be given experience points, as well as additional bonus points.

These games sound pretty interesting with the SRPG and VN mechanics according to the Kotaku article I saw earlier. I'll be in for trying out the first one for sure.

It sucks that EU gets the short end of the stick as usual, but at least we can import the NA version. It's not the end of the world. I'll definitely be picking this up for Vita. Keep those weeb games coming. ;)

So the game will be mostly rpg as the main attraction when playing? Looks cool but I kind of wish it the game wasn't rpg tbh. Not that I'm hating on the genre, but I personally only playing a rpg game only persona 5 when that game releases. Wish it would very only visual novel where I would be interested in trying it out if it was like that. Don't want to play any other rpg's since I think that would be better for next to play which is the only reason why I don't want to play other rpg type of games.

Came across it when I was looking at vita games to pre order on amazon. I definitely need to do a little more research before buying.. even though I'll most likely get it anyways because of two reasons.. 1. Atlus.. 2. Vita game.
