Naoya Shimokawa, president and representative director of Aquaplus, announced on his Twitter account on Saturday that visual novel Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro (Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth) will get an anime adaptation.

Game Synopsis
After the events of Mask of Deception, the Yamato Empire is now ruled with an iron fist by a ruthless usurper who seeks to subjugate all before him. It's up to a couple of familiar faces to band together against the might of the Imperial army, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance as nations and generals must pick a side to fight with in this perilous civil war. Secrets will be revealed, friendships will be tested, and battles will be fought. Will peace and order be restored or will victory at any cost be the beginning of the end? (Source: Atlus)

Utawarerumono: Futari no Hakuoro is the final entry of Aquaplus' Utawarerumono trilogy and was released in Japan for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita in September 2016. The first game Utawarerumono was developed by Leaf for Windows in April 2002 and was later ported on the PS2, PSP, PS4, and the PSV by Sting Entertainment. The second game, Utawarerumono Itsuwari no Kamen, was released in September 2015.

Game publisher Atlus released the second and third games in North America in May and September 2017, respectively. NIS America plans to release the first game under the subtitle Prelude to the Fallen in March 2020.

OLM adapted the first game into a 26-episode TV anime that aired in 2006. In 2009 and 2010, Chaos Project released a three-episode OVA that covered events that were not shown in the TV anime. White Fox produced a TV anime adaptation based on the second game in Fall 2015.

This and the Muv-Luv: Alternative adaptation... what a time to be alive for visual novel fans. I hope this time they can replicate the magic of the trilogy. A magnum opus of the medium for sure.

Finally. YES! I still like the first season the best. Season 2 disappoint me a bit. Hopefully this new one can do better.

Yesss, more Utawarerumono is always great. I loved both seasons.
Season 1 had basically all possible genres you could think of :D

Can we have any hope of this getting a good adaptation? The game is twice the size of Itsuwari no Kamen and the anime adaptation of that game was really meh.

Damn, it took forever for them to announce this. Though it might be because Kuon and Haku's seiyuu went on hiatus for a bit.

Holy shit this is 3 years late but whatever. first season didn't do the first visual novel justice so hopefully they step up their game now.
