Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a tactical RPG and visual novel game developed by Aquaplus and published by Atlus. The story takes place in a rich fantasy world and is said to offer 40 to 50 hours of gameplay. It begins with the protagonist awakening atop a snowy mountain, with no memories of who he is and how he got there. When he is attacked by a giant monster, a beautiful girl with animal ears and a tail comes to his rescue.
The plot of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception unfolds through a linear visual novel boasting great art and background soundtrack. Integrated with that is a turn-based RPG battle system with various mechanics like elemental affinities and combo attacks that add depth to the combat encounters. The game features English text and Japanese audio.
