THE STORY:
In Ennakamuy, a vassal state of Yamato in the Outlands, a young man lives with his mother and little sister.

A new JRPG from Aquaplus, announced to commemorate 20 years of Utawarerumono. Produced by legendary composer Naoya Shimokawa and written by Utawarerumono writer Munemitsu Suga, with support from the studio’s excellent art direction led by character designer Mi, Monochrome Mobius: Rights and Wrongs Forgotten focuses on the heart of any great RPG: the story.

One day, while this man is investigating a small case on behalf of the Owlo (Emperor), he meets a mysterious girl.

She tells him something incredible, namely that his father, thought dead, is still alive and kicking.

In search of the truth, he decides to leave his village and set out for Arva Shulan, a mysterious land that does not appear on any map.

He overcomes one obstacle after another to follow in his father’s footsteps. Along the way, he meets like-minded companions, who together endure hardships, happiness, setbacks and painful separations.

As fate would have it, the man is slowly swept into the middle of a crucial historical turning point. This is the story of a man who later becomes “Utawarerumono” – those who are praised.
