Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a 2D sidescrolling action RPG, steeped in Norse mythology and a complete HD remake of the original PS2 classic Odin Sphere from Vanillaware, the team behind the hit side-scrolling action game Dragon’s Crown and Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
The HD remake is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita as both as physical and digital release next Friday. All versions will have upgraded graphics, new modes, and localized game text in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
I was able to play the game ahead of it’s June 24 release and I’m eager to share a preview of the game’s prologue with you. Just like many other PS2 games, Odin Sphere slipped trough my radar and I wasn’t able to play the game when it originally released in 2007. I didn’t even know it existed until I fell in love with Dragon’s Crown and did a bit of research on the game’s developer, Vanillaware. We’re living in an age where HD Remakes and Remasters are a huge part of the games industry and while some are amazing, others are a huge pile of Donkey shit.
Fortunately, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir isn’t a huge pile of animal feces and is actually a great game that deserves an HD version on the new generation of consoles. I had an amazing time with the game and adding it to my ever expanding games library wasn’t a big mistake. If you played the PS2 version i could imagine that there’s no need to buy the updated version, but if you missed out on the PS2 version it’s a great RPG experience.
Check out our video preview of the game below and let us know what you think in the only place that matters, the comments.
