Utawarerumono: ZAN


Publisher NIS America today released a new trailer for their upcoming PlayStation 4 brawler Utawarerumono: ZAN, which is set to release on September 10.

The footage offers a fresh look at the game’s over-the-top action and colorful cast of 12 playable characters who are lifted straight from developer Aquaplus’ visual novel/strategy role-playing game series. Watch as they unleash their fury in Musou-style fashion in the trailer below:


In addition to the single-player story, Utawarerumono: ZAN allows up to four players to team up to tackle hordes of enemies in spectacular battles and embark in free battles to earn military medals. The game also includes fully animated cutscenes – a first for the series.

Utawarerumono: ZAN tells the story of Haku, a man with no memories, and the raging conflict that threatens the future of his homeland. The game allows you to take control of a dozen characters first introduced in Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth and Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, each with their own unique and powerful abilities.
