Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth Heads to the West in September, Body Pillow in Tow

Time to hold out for the body pillow trend to catch on beyond Japanese games.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception will be released on Tuesday, but its follow-up grows ever closer as well. Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth has been revealed by Atlus for release on September 5th in North America and Europe for Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita. But the game is not alone.

As a pre-order bonus for the limited launch editions comes a special item: a body pillow. A somewhat tangible anime girl to cuddle with at night. It’s not a full-length body pillow, but it's double-sided, featuring the two mysterious priestesses from the game, Uruuru and Saraana.

The 80+ hour strategy RPG and visual novel is the follow-up to the events set by its predecessor, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (releasing May 23rd). The score itself for the new title, according to Atlus, has been recorded and remastered at Abbey Road Studios (do The Beatles ring a bell?) and EastWest Studios. The game will again feature typical SRPG battles, alongside getting to know characters in the visual novel portions and wrapping up the dramatic events of the war-torn world.
