Today Atlus announced that the recently announced remake of the 2007 Vanillaware action RPG Odin Sphere would be coming to the west sometime in 2016 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita. Subtitled “Leifthrasir,” which is pronounced “LAYV-thra-sheer” according to the folks as Atlus, the remake will feature redone visuals, combat, and systems, information about which will be released sometime in the near future.
First released for the PS2 nearly ten years ago, Odin Sphere spins a tale encompassing five brave heroes who all fight for very different reasons. Told against the backdrop of a water-color world inspired by Norse Mythology, the player must battle their way through hordes of monsters, the undead, and even their fellow humans as they attempt to succeed in their quest, best their foes, and unravel the truth behind an apocalyptic prophecy handed down from ages past.
For those who cannot wait till next year to get their hands on the remake of this gorgeous RPG experience, the original version of Odin Sphere is available right now on the PS3 via Sony’s “PS2 Classics” line of releases.
