If you want to try out the upcoming action JRPG Utawarerumono ZAN 2 before it releases in Japan in a week, now you can.
Each version of the demo lets you play the first four chapters of the main story of the game and save games can be carried over to the final game. Of course, this likely doesn’t include the western version, assuming that it’ll be localized down the line.
You should also keep in mind that you need a Japanese PSN account to download and install the demo. After that is done, it’ll be playable on any account as long as the console is set as your primary.
Utawarerumono Zan 2 will be released, at least in Japan, on July 22, 2021, for PS5 and PS4. You can check out the first trailer and screenshots and another trailer that showcased the cast and features, a third one, and more screenshots.
Recently, we also saw a ton of gameplay directly from Aquaplus, including an extensive look at features beyond the scope of this demo.
At the moment, no western release has been announced. That’s not surprising considering that the game has just been revealed for Japan a few weeks ago. The original Utawarerumono ZAN was published in the West by NIS America, so it isn’t unlikely that the publisher may bring across this one as well. Of course, we’ll let you know if anything is announced down the line.
