Make sure to give out Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth review a read, as well:
Most fans and critics seem to agree that, in media like films and games, it’s a positive quality if a sequel can stand on its own. This can be done by giving the viewer/player a rundown of everything that’s come before, or just making knowledge of the previous entries unnecessary. But either way, it’s largely preferable to stumbling one’s way through a narrative that makes little or no effort (or just a terrible effort) to clue you in to what’s going on. You may have figured out that I’m talking about Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, which is the third game in the tongue-twisting-to-pronounce visual novel series that began with a Japan-only eroge (read: pornographic video game) called Utawarerumono, developed by a company called Leaf, back in 2002 on Windows. Aquaplus later removed the adult scenes and published versions of the game on PS2 and PSP, which in turn served as the basis for Aquaplus to develop their own sequel duology to the original in the form of Mask of Deception and now Mask of Truth.
Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is out now on the PlayStation 4 and Vita.
