AQUAPLUS posted a promotional movie for its Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro (Utawarerumono: The Two Hakuoros) game on Wednesday. The video introduces the story and the new gameplay system in the third climatic installment in AQUAPLUS' Utawarerumono trilogy.

Aquaplus will release the game on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita on September 21. Yuko Gibu (Tamayura's Maon Sakurada, Aoi Hana's Akira Okudaira) joins the cast as as Fumiriru.

The second game in the series, Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen, shipped on September 24 in Japan for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. The game's producer had promised that the third game would be released within one-and-a-half to two years after the release of the second, and stated that the second and third games were in development simultaneously.

The 25-episode television anime adaptation of Utawarerumono -Itsuwari no Kamen- premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo on October 3. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video.

AQUAPLUS released the original Utawarerumono game in 2002 for the PC. The game inspired a 2006 television anime series and a 2009 original video anime series. ADV Films originally licensed the first Utawarerumono TV anime, but Funimation Entertainment later picked up the license.

The original Utawarerumono adventure simulation game takes place in a world where people have animal ears and tails, and rival generals battle for supremacy.
