If you're familiar with Vanillaware and George Kamitani, you'd know that their games contain some of the most stunning and unique visuals in the industry. The aesthetics in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir are no exception. As I mentioned earlier, the team at Vanillaware redrew the art by hand to make it look as perfect as possible in the HD remake. I mean did you see how freaking gorgeous the trailer was?
Unfortunately, it's hard to truly observe the visual design of the game while trying to, you know, save the entire world. If only there was some way to just sit down and appreciate the game's art like the cultured aesthete that you are...
WELL PRAISE ODIN! The Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Artworks art book will let you do just that! Take a closer look at the characters, NPCs, lands, dungeons, items, and, of course, food that populate the lands of beautiful Erion. I would love to describe the sophisticated contents of the art book more, but I think actually seeing some pages from it would help give you a better picture.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is the all-encompassing HD remake of the original PlayStation 2 'Greatest Hits' title, Odin Sphere. Developed by the legendary Vanillaware and published by ATLUS, the game is steeped in Norse mythology with intricate plots that wouldn't be out of place in a Wagner opera. Five character plots intertwine as the world of Erion hurtles towards the end of days as warring kingdoms clash for control.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. For a limited time and only at participating retailers, a 64-page softcover art book will come with standard purchases. There's also the Odin Sphere Leifthrasir "Storybook Edition" premium version (limited to the PS4 version of the game) that includes a hardcover version of the art book, a special Potion Recipe t-shirt, a metal slipcase for the game, an art print, and premium outer packaging.
