Prominent gaming news reporting site, Gematsu, has shared news regarding the upcoming Utawarerumono 20-year anniversary game, Monochrome Mobius: Rights and Wrongs Forgotten.
Unfortunately, localized PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game seem unlikely as NIS America has confirmed that they currently have no plans for the title. NIS America handled the localizations of Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen and the first Zan, so this revelation is disheartening. Further, Zan 2 has still not been localized and might not ever be at this rate.
Shiravune is handling the western PC localization of Monochrome Mobius: Rights and Wrongs Forgotten. It is unknown if they will also be managing potential PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 localizations.
Gematsu’s update tweet on this matter can be viewed below:
NIS America, which published Uta: Prelude to the Fallen and Uta: ZAN in the west, say it has "no plans regarding Monochrome Mobius" at this time.
Currently, the PC version published by Shiravune is the only western release. Still awaiting response from them. https://t.co/zd663CFuZ5

The latest localized release for this series is Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen. This title is a remake of the original Utawarerumono, which was never officially released in the west. The title tells the story of events leading up to Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth; both titles were originally published and localized by Atlus in the west. All three games were also released on PC by Shiravune.
Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen contains extra content, remastered visuals, and a necessary piece in the puzzle for Utawarerumono fans to understand the entire story. Every scene has received an enhancement, with each illustration being presented in HD. Additionally, battles are displayed on complete 3D fields, and a new Special Extended Mode has been added.
