Bonus anime to tell story of Kuon's childhood days

AQUAPLUS began streaming a teaser promotional video on Wednesday for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita remake of its original Utawarerumono: Chiriyukumono e no Komoriuta game. The video reveals the game's April 26 release date in Japan.

The "premium collection" release of the game will include special packaging, a "Tusukuru-ōjo no Karei na Hibi" (The Imperial Tusukuru Princess' Splendid Days) original anime on Blu-ray Disc, a visual book, and an original soundtrack. The game is also getting a "Trilogy Box" set release with the second and third games in the franchise. The box set release also includes the original anime on Blu-ray Disc, the visual book, and the original soundtrack.

WHITE FOX (Utawarerumono: The False Faces) is again producing the new anime, which tells a story of Kuon's childhood days.

Aquaplus released Leaf's original Utawarerumono adult visual novel for PC in 2002. The adventure simulation game takes place in a world where people have animal ears and tails, and rival generals battle for supremacy. Sting developed a PlayStation 2 port, titled Utawarerumono: Chiriyukumono e no Komoriuta, which Aquaplus released in 2006. A PlayStation Portable port debuted in 2009.

The Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen (Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception) game shipped for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita in Japan in September 2015, and it shipped for PS4 and PS Vita in the West on May 23. Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth (Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro), the third installment in the Utawarerumono trilogy, debuted in Japan for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita in September 2016. The game shipped for PS4 and PS Vita in the West on September 5.

The original game inspired a 2006 television anime series, a 2007 manga, and a 2009 original video anime series. ADV Films originally licensed the first Utawarerumono television anime, but FUNimation later picked up the license. The television anime adaptation of Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen premiered in Japan in October 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video.
