They may be spelled with the same letters, but these completely separate characters now have trailers to prove it.
Atlus has released two new trailers for their upcoming localization of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, and with them come some details on the characters they feature. While we’ve already been properly introduced to Haku this way, it’s now time to meet Kuon and Ukon that way as well.
Kuon is the mysterious traveler who rescues protagonist Haku in the beginning of the game, and eventually becomes his full time guardian. Though it’s easy to see that she’s cute, tough, smart, and going about to the beat of her own drum (so to speak), not much is known about Kuon’s past – though we do know she’s an apothecary by trade. As such, she’s proficient with herbology and medicine, and is a fine healer when needed.

Ukon on the other hand, is a mercenary of an unusual sort. With cares for the common people and the respect of those under his command, he’s got a good head on his shoulders compared to most in his profession. Maybe that’s why when he asks Haku and Kuon for help, they oblige – and why even when things go awry he ends up taking them under his wing. His true motives however, are unclear.
Get a look at this strange warrior below.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is due out May 23rd in the West.
