Yesterday, Famitsu revealed that Usotsuki Hime to Moumoku Ouji (previously revealed during a Nippon Ichi Software livestream, last month) would be released on Nintendo Switch. And since the game is featured in Famitsu this week, and that themagazine has already started to leak, we now have additional details about it.
First: the release date. Usotsuki Hime to Moumoku Ouji will be released on May 31st in Japan, where it will cost 6 980 Yen + taxes.
Next, actual details about the game. As mentioned yesterday, Usotsuki Hime to Moumoku Ouji has you play as a “lying” princess, who has to guide a blind prince through a dark and menacing forest.
One day, the prince was lured into a forest by a monster with a wolf-like appearance, and more precisely by its wonderful singing voice. Unfortunately for him, this ends up costing him his sight, though entirely by accident: the monster think it’s been spotted, and decides to attack.
Following that incident, the prince is advised to go see a witch, who lives in the forest, so he can get his eyes healed up. Unfortunately for him, the witch will only fulfill wishes if she get proper compensation.
The princess can transform into a monster, and each “form” allows her to perform various actions: defeating enemies, solving puzzles, etc.. In order to progress through the game, you need to switch from one form to the other.
The singing monster is none other than the “Princess” herself. She lies to the prince by pretending to be the princess of a neighbouring country, and not revealing that she is in fact the very monster who injured him in the first place. That’s right: that’s where the “Lying Princess” bit of the title comes from!
Usotsuki Hime to Moumoku Ouji (Switch) comes out on May 31st in Japan. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
