I didn’t even know about the Utawarerumono franchise from Aquaplus until a few years ago when a lot of my friends praised the (at the time) Japan only visual novel strategy game hybrids. Atlus USA localised Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth for PlayStation platforms and I loved both of them. NIS America is now bringing more of the franchise to USA and Europe with 2 new Utawarerumono games set for release in September and then Early 2020 with Utawarerumono Zan and Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen. With that short history lesson out of the way, Aquaplus recently teased a new Utawarerumono game. That was announced to be a mobile game. Watch the trailer below:
Utawarerumono: Lost Flag features Akuta and Minagi in addition to older characters like Kuon, Eruruu, Benawi, and more will also appear. Pre-registration is currently live on the official website and there are more gacha rounds given as bonuses with every pre-registration tier met. There will also be a new character called Suzuri appearing. Check out the key art below:
Utawarerumono: Lost Flag is set to release this year in Japan for free on iOS and Android. It will have item based microtransactions and gacha. As of now, this is only confirmed for Japan but given how the recent console games are getting localised and released in USA and Europe, hopefully Aquaplus gets this one released in the West. If you want to try the Japanese release when it arrives, pre-register here. Have you played any game in the series before?
