News: Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir

Vanillaware is known for some truly striking 2D visuals, having developed such games as Dragon’s Crown and Muramasa: The Demon Blade. The company made a big splash in 2007 with their PS2 releases of Grim Grimoire and Odin Sphere, especially given that the industry had temporarily forgotten about 2D gaming at that time. And now Odin Sphere is making a return in a remastered HD version entitled Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir, which features not only updated visuals, but also new enemies and bosses, as well as some unspecified gameplay enhancements and a "classic mode".

The new version of the game is coming to PS3, PS4, and Vita, but so far it has only been announced in Japan (releasing January 14, 2016), with an art book included in the first printing.
