With its vivid, colorful 2D art, Odin Sphere was one of the most beautiful games to grace the PS2 — and soon it's going to look even better. Publisher Atlus has just announced a high-definition remake of the game, called Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, which will bring it to the PS4, PS3, and Vita. In addition to the enhanced visuals and redrawn art, the new version will also feature more content, along with tweaked gameplay and fully voice-acted story scenes.
First released in 2007, Odin Sphere was the breakout hit for Japanese studio Vanillaware, which has since become renowned for its particular style of 2D art in games like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Dragon's Crown. Odin Sphere takes place in a world based on Norse mythology, and lets you control five different characters over the course of seven chapters. It blends elements of a side-scrolling action game with a more typical RPG.
The remake will be coming to all three platforms sometime in 2016.
