Publisher NIS America recently releases a gameplay trailer of remake Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen and sets for release on May 26, 2020 (US), and May 29, 2020 (EU & ANZ) on PlayStation 4 as well as Vita. Get a taste on the gameplay video below:
It always starts with Amnesia
Wake up as a man with no memories in a strange world, taken into a tribe of villagers. Raised as their own and named “Hakuoro”. As the neighboring nations began to intrude into the village, Hakuoro rose up against the tyrannical invaders which will eventually set into a journey like any other RPG.
Game features based on the description via the official website:
Each unit has its own unique chain attack, and they aren’t all just physical attacks. Some units’ chain attacks can heal allies. As units level up, their chain attacks gain additional attacks and become more powerful. A ring is displayed on the screen during chain attacks.
The ring gradually becomes smaller. Hitting the attack button before it disappears links it to the next attack in the chain. Pressing the attack button just before the ring disappears will earn you bonus zeal.
Once a chain attack begins, hold L1 (or L on the PlayStation Vita) to automatically link your chain attacks. This is recommended for players who do not have good timing.
Once a unit levels up to a certain point, they will acquire their final strike. In order to activate their final strike, they must have maximum zeal. Final strikes are unleashed at the end of a chain attack, so all chain attacks must be successfully linked. If all chain attacks are successful, the final strike will activate with a special attack animation.
