Proximity Alert: Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir

Remember Odin Sphere? It was that game that came out during the PS2 era - along with GrimGrimoire - that showed the world that it was still OK to make 2D video games... because the effects of Symphony of the Night had worn out, apparently. Since then, Vanillaware has continued ignoring the 3D trend by putting out games like Muramasa and Dragon's Crown, and now they're revisiting Odin Sphere with Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. The game is an HD remaster of the original game, featuring more detailed visuals, newly-recorded audio, a smoother framerate, and some tweaks to the control system, along with improved combat... although a classic mode will preserve most of the qualities of the original game. Several new modes will be included in the game's release, including a boss rush, New Game+, and a harder difficulty setting called Hell, and the game also features an entirely new dungeon.

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is coming to PS3, PS4, and Vita on June 7 in both physical and digital forms.
