You can watch the Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth anime trailer shown during the live stream below. However, it is only available in Japanese and does not offer English subtitles.

The animated adaptation of Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth will arrive some 6 years after the release of the Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception adaptation. Additionally, the broadcast revealed several key characters that will appear in the animated adaptation. This includes Anju, Nekone, and Haku. Raiko also appeared during the trailer.

In January 2021, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Mask of Truth were delisted from the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 online stores. However, the title is immediately available on PC through the Steam storefront.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is immediately available for PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.
