'Odin Sphere Leifthrasir' (ALL) Introduces The Valkyrie Princess - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 16, 2016 @ 3:45 p.m. PDT

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a HD remake of the 2D action RPG with Norse Mythology roots, originally released on PS2 in 2007.

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.


It's time to reintroduce the ensemble cast of Odin Sphere, because they'll be reprising their roles in the HD remake, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

First up is Gwendolyn, the brave and loyal Valkyrie princess of Ragnanival. Though she is the daughter of the fearsome Demon Lord Odin and a child of the cold north, Gwendolyn is a sweet and compassionate young woman. All she wants is to protect her home and to earn her father's love, but destiny, as it so often does, decides to interfere with her plans.

After the death of her older sister Griselda, Gwendolyn is bestowed the powerful Psypher Spear. With the spear and her esteemed Valkyrie training, Gwendolyn is a force of righteous fury -- from the ground or sky, she'll pierce, slash, and thrust enemies with unmatchable grace and precision. The addition of skill trees in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir makes Gwendolyn an even more powerful and dynamic warrior. Since she's from the North, she has many useful ice skills such as Pain Feather (an evasive maneuver that leaves a trail of feathers which freeze enemies) and the deadly Icicle Wave attack. Ice magic not your thing? Gwendolyn can summon a literal storm of spears that follows her with the Comet Spear skill. Then there's her ultimate skill, which summons Gungnir -- the "All-Piercing God Spear." It does exactly what you think it does, assuming you're thinking it rains death and destruction via a giant spear shot from the heavens. Gwendolyn has plenty more skills and abilities to utilize, but you probably get the idea that she's not one to be trifled with.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be released both digitally and physically.
