Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir Is An HD Port For PS Vita and Consoles
Finally, time to revisit the game!
Odin Sphere was one of my favorite games from the PlayStation 2 era, though I always experienced the worst slowdown I had ever seen in a game during its later levels, and that meant I never finished the game because of how frustrating and impossible this made some of the sections.
Atlus and VanillaWare are teaming up to announce Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita, and it's due out in Japan on January 14, 2016 with a special first-print copy that includes an art book.
Rather than being a straight up HD port, however, Leiftrasir is described as a different being than the original Odin Sphere, with recreated gameplay systems and a new "Classic Mode." Check out the trailer above, but get hyped for this one. It's a fantastic tale that everyone should experience, and hopefully the slowdown has been managed in a manner where we can actually enjoy the game this time around.
