Next Utawarermono comes with simultaneous release on Steam.
Set between Utawarerumono 1 and Mask of Deception with Oshtor as protagonist.
Synopsis:
In the small province of Ennakamuy, on the frontiers of the great empire of Yamato, there lived a young man with his mother and sister. One day, at the local lord's behest, the young man was investigating a small irregularity when he encountered a girl he’d never met.
The words the girl spoke were what shocked him: She told the man that his father was still alive.
Seeing a trace of his father in her and resolving to learn the truth, the young man and the girl set out together towards the land of Arva Shulan—a country that doesn’t appear on the map.

Faced with trials and perils, the boy chases his father.
He meets new friends and comrades who join him on his mission.
There will be struggles and victories and failures and partings.
The fickle vagaries of fate will place an epoch in the young man’s hands—

And one day, this man will be sung of in legends.

Looks kinda underwhelming. Also, a little bit too weabooish.

Weren't they making a separate, big budget Utawarerumono game already?

OK, I've got to ask and I don't want to Google it because I don't want to have to read the anime fan's answer to this question... what is the connection between Monochrome Mobius and Undawatereyromono?

Is this a thing where Aquaplus doesn't have full rights to the brand and is doing its own doujin work, or is this a spin-off franchise? (Is Monochrome a thing elsewhere and I've just never heard that name before?)

I don't think the developers gave an answer yet. But they said they wanted to depict the story in between the first game and 2nd one and this would be it. Aquaplus own the IP though and this is the franchises 20th anniversary title.

My own personal guess is: Probably because there is no Masked Protagonist like Haku and Hakuoro and it's Oshtor

Production values are a big step up. I've owned the Utawarerumono games for a while now and still haven't even installed them.
