Two promotional videos for the game Odin Sphere Leifþrasir (romanized Odin Sphere Leifthrasir) has been released by Atlus last Friday. The game is the upcoming HD recreation of Vanillaware’s Odin Sphere PlayStation 2 game.
In the first video, the story for the game has been introduced together with the game’s main characters and some scenes from the game’s story.
The second video features the game’s new mechanics such as the combos, finishing moves as well as the Psypher skill trees.
The game’s story centers around a war between the kingdom of Ragnanival, led by the king Odin, and the realm of Ringford, led by the queen Elfaria. Their war has devastated the country of Valentine, of which only scattered ruins remain. The story is told from the perspective of five characters whose stories intertwine: Gwendolyn, valkyrie and younger daughter of Odin; Cornelius, prince of the neutral country of Titania; Mercedes, daughter of Elfaria and princess of Ringford; Oswald, a shadow knight and agent of Ringford; and Velvet, a survivor of Valentine’s devastation.
The Japanese cast of the five main protagonists is returning for the new game.
- Ayako Kawasumi as Gwendolyn
- Daisuke Namikawa as Cornelius
- Mamiko Noto as Mercedes
- Susumu Chiba as Oswald
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Velvet
It was also revealed that the first copies of the game include the Odin Sphere Leifþrasir Artworks. It was a deluxe edition of the previous Odin Sphere Artworks book.
The game will be released by Atlus USA in North America in 2016. Meanwhile, the game will debut in Japan for PS 4, PS 3 and PS Vita on January 14, 2016 through the collaboration of Atlus and Vanillaware.
