Odin Sphere Leifthrasir EU Release Info

So was wondering what to post today, was toying with a couple of posts I’ve got in the works, but this arrived in my inbox, so decided this will do to start with! See below the cut for more information!

Santa Ana, Calif. (13 April 2016) – NIS America is extremely excited to announce that Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be coming to Europe on 24 June, 2016! Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be coming to PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, and PlayStation®Vita as both a physical and digital release.

NIS America will also release the special Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition,” which will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and includes a hardcover art book, an art print of game characters, a collectible metal slipcase, and more. NIS America will also provide localization support for Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, with game text in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a 2D sidescrolling action RPG, steeped in Norse mythology or a Wagnerian opera. The new game is 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. Atlus U.S.A. will be publishing this game in North America.

About the story:

The kingdom of Valentine was the most powerful country on the continent of Erion. Its people thrived using the magical power of the Crystallization Cauldron, but it was destroyed in one fateful night. And so, a war over the now master-less Cauldron has begun, involving all the nations of the land and growing more intense by the day. Is the End near, as the Prophecy states?

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition”

The Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition” will be available for a premium price at select online retailers in Europe and will include the following items:

  • PS4 version of the game.
  • A 64-page hardcover art book, with full color renditions of the glorious Vanillaware art.
  • A Potion Recipe t-shirt to remind you of the most basic alchemical recipes.
  • A collector’s metal slipcase to house the game.
  • Alice and Socrates art print.
  • And a premium outer box adorned with the game’s fantastical artwork!


For me this is one I’m both looking forward to, and dreading. On the one hand it’s from the creators of Dragon’s Crown, a game that frustrated the hell out of me, in a good way. I’ve clocked up over 100 hours in that game. I also have Muramasa Rebirth vibes from this game, and that’s always a good thing IMO!!

The Game also has a number of elements I like the idea of, such as crafting and alchemy, and frankly up until today I was really looking forward to this game. Then today I saw the new trailer for Cornelius, once I heard his english voice I felt like vomiting it was soon bad. I hope they have an option for Japanese voices!

Anyway here’s a couple of trailers and some screen shots for you guys to enjoy! And, yeah, I am still excited for this game!
