Atlus announced last year that they would be localizing the overhauled and enhanced version of Odin Sphere, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, but only gave a vague 2016 release estimate for the game. The publisher has now announced a finalized release date for the game in North America: June 7, along with the launch of the official website for the game.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a total overhaul of the original PS2 game. From completely hand-redrawn graphics and refined gameplay mechanics to optimizations for the release consoles, the game fully encapsulates an artfully elegant tale steeped in Norse mythology with all the makings of a tragic opera. The five main characters each traverse their own storylines, be it as friends, lovers, or mortal enemies, punctuated with sharp, precise combat against fantastical enemies and dragons - Odin Sphere Leifthrasir gives players the sensation of playing in a fairytale of Wagnerian proportions as the main characters all vie to regain stability in their world of warring kingdoms.
Exclusive to the PS4 version is a special "Storybook" edition of the game, which will be available only in limited quantities for $79.99/CA$99.99. But for all of the non-Storybook edition versions of the game, Atlus will be including a special gift in the form of a softcover version of the 64-page art book package separately, similar to what the publisher did for their release of Dragon's Crown.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be released on the PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita on June 7 in North America. No word has been announced yet regarding a European release.
