    Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen debuts a new gameplay trailer

    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:

    Game Flow

    Like the games “Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception” and “Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth”, this game features two distinct parts: story and battle. These parts alternate as the story advances.


    Read through the scenes to progress the story. At various times, the player will be asked to make decisions, which may lead to alternate events.

    RPG Battles

    As you progress through the story, you will need to win battles to continue.

    Chain Attacks

    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.

    Final Strike

    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.

    Co-op Chain

    As you progress through the game, you will be able to use co-op chains, which are attacks coordinated between specific units. The major feature of co-op chains is their wide target area. They are extremely powerful techniques.

    Healing Arts

    After progressing through the game, Eruruu will gain access to these skills. There are a variety of skills, such as healing allies, curing status ailments, or even inflicting status ailments on enemies.


    Mages can use these skills, which have various ranges and target areas. Each magecraft spell has a limited number of uses. As a mage unit levels up, they learn new spells, and increase the number of times they can use them.


    The items you acquire in battle are listed on the battle results screen. Battle rewards are earned by defeating specific units during a battle, and stage clear bonuses are earned by clearing stages. Items must be equipped before they can be used.


    Abilities are unique to each unit, and some abilities can be used from the very beginning. Units may learn new abilities by leveling up. Learned abilities are constantly active during battles.


    As you progress through the game, you will gain access to the training option at the base. Challenge these training stages to earn experience points and battle rewards.

    Special Extended

    Includes many songs from “Prelude to the Fallen,” “Mask of Deception,” and “The Two Hakuowlos.” This mode enhances the excitement of the story with new arrangements of the BGM.
