Atlus have been in touch to reveal most about their upcoming Utawarerumono releases.

First up we’ve got a look at an official unboxing of Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception‘s launch edition, which reportedly includes the following items as early adopter bonuses;

  • Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception Compendium Art Book – This 50-page softcover art book contains art/information about some of the unlikely heroes, fantastical creatures, exotic locales and more! The book also features concept art and developer notes that show a glimpse of the creative process behind building a mystical world. Oh, and it also includes information about the mighty Yamato Empire and its surrounding nations that’ll serve as a guide to those unfamiliar with the Utawarerumono series. Preview the compendium here.
  • Collector’s Slipcase – The physical game and art book will be enveloped by a protective slipcase.

In addition to that look at the nearly-at-hand release, we’ve also been given a date for the upcoming sequel Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth – which happens to be headed our way on September 5th. It appears to be a digital only Vita release in Europe, but will be given the full physical treatment in North America.

Pre-ordering the North American physical version will net you a collector’s slip case box and a double-sided pillowcase as bonus items, the pillowcase featuring the mysterious Yamato priestesses Uruuru and Saraana.
