This week’s issue of Famitsu has revealed that when Utawarerumono: The Two Hakuoros is released later this year in Japan for it will now include Anju, the imperial princess, as a playable character. For those who may have only seen the anime following the second game, Anju was never able to participate in combat and was even poisoned at one point so this marks the first time in the series that she will be able to fight in combat.
Anju is being described as a “power fighter” and those who have save data from Utawarerumono: The False Faces will be given a number of bonus items to help get them started when this title is released. Also shown off are special co-op techniques that players will be able to perform after a certain part in the story with certain characters.
Utawarerumono: The Two Hakuoros is currently slated to be released in Japan on September 21st for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita.
