■ About

The starting point is now, to a new beginning.

The starting point of the Utawarerumono series, and the first title before leading into Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, Utawarerumono: Chiriyuku Mono he no Komoriuta has been significantly enhanced for its appearance on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

The maps, characters, etc. during the simulation parts have been completely changed from 2D to 3D. Consecutive attacks, special moves, and cooperative attack scenes have all been upgraded and changed to the same systems used in Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth, making gameplay more comfortable. Event scenes have also been upgraded.

Event CGs, bust shots, etc. have all been made high-resolution and refined. 2D backgrounds have all been newly drawn, and the opening movie has also been made high-resolution.

All of the original background music has been rearranged. The opening theme, “Kimi dake no Tabiji,” and ending theme, “Kimigatame,” have been rearranged for this remake, and songs have also been newly recorded. A “Special Extended Mode,” which chooses and uses the best background music from the Utawarerumono series, has also been added to liven up the drama with new interpretations.

■ Story

Utawarerumono: Chiriyuku Mono he no Komoriuta

A certain world, a certain continent. There were various races, which had ears and tails like beasts. They built villages, lived a simple life, and eventually even formed a country.

Yamayura, a village on the northeast frontier of the continent. A dying young man was brought in by a girl named Eruruu. Although he suffered serious injuries, she nursed him back to health, but he had lost all memory about himself.

The young man was named Hakuoro. His wounds healed and grew accustomed to living in the village. While bearing the burden that is the mystery of himself, Hakuoro lent a hand to the village’s development.

Everyone in the village soon comes to rely on Hakuoro, who has a naturally calm and dilligent personality. Harvest season eventually arrives. The villagers’ efforts bore fruit and their harvest was unexpectedly abundant. However, the gossip reached the ears of the feudal lord. In order to seize them of their harvest, he sends his troops to Yamayura.

And the matter of the frontier itself became the catalyst to a war that will shake the world…
