NIS America announced during its NISA Showcase 2019 presentation on Monday that the Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen remake of AQUAPLUS' original Utawarerumono: Chiriyukumono e no Komoriuta game will launch in North America and Europe in early 2020. The game will be available physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and digitally for PlayStation Vita. The release will have Japanese audio and English subtitles.
The limited edition will bundle a hardcover art book, soundtrack CD, metal keychain, and poster for US$79.99.
The game is launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in April 2018.
WHITE FOX (Utawarerumono: The False Faces) again produced 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 in May 2017. 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 in September 2017.
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.
