The upcoming sequel to Aquaplus’s tactical strategy game Utawarerumono: The False Mask is getting an anime series this October.
Animated by studio White Fox who are known for creating anime adaptations of the light novel series Katanagatari and the visual novel Steins;Gate, Utawarerumono: The False Mask or Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen will be a two cour 25-episode anime set to start airing in Japan on October of this year; just a month after the premiere of its game counterpart. Not much has been revealed about the series itself and whether it will be a direct adaptation of the False Mask game or a continuation of it. The official YouTube channel of the Japanese record company King Records has released a short teaser trailer of the anime along with a poster promoting it, which you can both see below.
You can also check out a short story synopsis of the title the anime is adapting, courtesy of Anime News Network, below this paragraph.
When I came to, I realized I was standing in the middle of a vast, snowy plain I knew nothing of. I didn’t know how I got there. And to add to that, I couldn’t remember anything, not even my name. I stood there, dumbfounded at my absurd situation. But then, as if to spite me further, a gigantic monster suddenly appeared, an insect-like creature that began to bear down on me. I tried desperately to run, but it cornered me into a hopeless situation. It was then that the girl appeared. Her name was Kuon. It was this beautiful girl, who bore an animal’s ears and tail, who saved my life.
This LewdGamer writer hopes that the new anime adaptation will feature a lot of sensual tail touching just like the anime based on the first game in the saga.

Utawarerumono: The False Mask is set to premiere on the 24th of September of this year in Japan on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
