Atlus has announced a PlayStation 4-exclusive “Storybook Edition” collector’s edition for Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir in North America, and a spring 2016 western release window for the action RPG remake.
The PlayStation 4-only $79.99 / CA$99.99 Storybook Edition includes:
- Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir for PlayStation 4
- 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.
The standard edition PlayStation 4 ($59.99 / CA$79.99), PlayStation 3 ($49.99 / CA$64.99), and PS Vita ($39.99 / CA$54.99) versions of the game will include a softcover version of the 64-page art book at participating retailers.
Here’s a rundown of the game, via Atlus:
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.
