Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Gets a Special “Storybook Edition”

os1 od2

One of the most beautiful JRPG’s of the PlayStation 2 era was Odin Sphere. Some remaster’s are more than welcome. Atlus has done a great thing bringing back one of the best PlayStation 2 games.

So today we get a look at the “Storybook Edition.” This is the collector’s edition which has a ton of items I need in my life. However, this edition is only for the PlayStation 4 version and only that.

Contents of the “Storybook Edition” include:

  • 64-page Hardcover Art Book – Filled with the original drawings from the legendary George Kamitani and Vanillaware.
  • Potion Recipe T-shirt – This large-size t-shirt is emblazoned with a helpful reminder of one of the more common uses of Alchemy in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir: turning the living Mandragora plant creatures (Habaneristos, in this case) into potions vital for survival.
  • Collector’s Metal Slipcase – The PS4 game will come nestled in a special metal slipcase with the game’s key art on the front, and a not-yet-revealed image on the reverse.
  • Art Print – Also included with the game will be a high-quality art print with another not-yet-revealed (but different) design.
  • Premium Outer Box – All the contents in the premium edition will be packaged in a large, sturdy outer box.

To reiterate, the Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition” exclusively contains the PlayStation 4 version of the game. However, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will also be available for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The PS4, PS3 and PS Vita versions of Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will include a softcover version of the 64-page art book at participating retailers. The non-premium editions will cost $59.99/CA$79.99, $49.99/CA$64.99, and $39.99/CA$54.99 for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita respectively.

 

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a total overhaul of the original PS2 game. From completely hand-redrawn graphics and refined gameplay mechanics to optimizations for the release consoles, the game fully encapsulates an artfully elegant tale steeped in Norse mythology with all the makings of a tragic opera. The five main characters each traverse their own storylines, be it as friends, lovers, or mortal enemies, punctuated with sharp, precise combat against fantastical enemies and dragons – Odin Sphere Leifthrasir gives players the sensation of playing in a fairytale of Wagnerian proportions as the main characters all vie to regain stability in their world of warring kingdoms.
