One of my favourite games coming out of the PS2 was Vanillaware’s Odin Sphere, a 2D fantasy beat’em up with an unique travel system, great story, RPG elements, and controller snapping difficulty. So when Atlus announced that the game will be coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita next year, I couldn’t hold my excitement.
The remastered edition of Odin Sphere, titled Odin Sphere: Leifþrasir, will feature a higher resolution then what could be done on the PS2 at the time and Vanillaware will be adding more enemies, new maps, and add tweaks to the alchemy and fighting systems.
Atlus has announced a release date of January 14th 2016 in Japan, however no word on a North American release as of yet. The original version of the game was released back in 2007, crossing over to the PS3 in the PS2 Classics section back in 2011.
