Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth is not a short game. It’s a thrilling visual novel and SRPG adventure that will take you around 80+ hours to complete. That’s a whole lot of political intrigue to experience, relationships to build, and battles to win in one game. Defeating the Yamato Empire and its usurper isn’t going to happen overnight, so it makes sense that we created a launch edition that contains a useful tool to assist in this grandiose endeavor. We don’t want you being weary during your journey, so why not outfit your pillow with our pillowcase bonus item? It’s adorned with the ever mysterious Yamato priestesses Uruuru and Saraana, and will definitely help you drift off into a deep sleep. Or you can have a pillow fight, your choice.
Pre-orders and limited launch editions of the game will come with a collector’s slip case box and pillowcase bonus items (only available in the Americas). The double-sided pillowcase features the mysterious Yamato priestesses Uruuru and Saraana, and will fit on most standard pillows. Negotiating alliances, battling enemies, and juggling relationships is a lot of work, so we encourage you to lay down and rest your head on the adorable bonus item to stay fresh for the journey ahead.
