Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir introduces post-game content, demo launches January 8 in Japan

HD remake due out next week in Japan.

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir

Atlus and VanillaWare have released a new video for Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir introducing the game’s post-clear elements.

After clearing the game, “Xtra New Game” is unlocked. Through this mode, you can choose from your save data and play the game from the beginning while inheriting your items and ability level. If you select the “Hell” difficulty, you can play the game in a super hard mode where your HP never increases from its initial 200-point value.

Enemies are more difficult on the second playthrough. Even if you play on normal, if your characters aren’t sufficiently leveled, then it’ll be tough.There are also new enemies and weapons.

There is also a 30-round special boss rush mode where you can battle all of the game’s mid-bosses and bosses with your favorite character. They’re all set to level 50 and there are no checkpoints or opportunities to use items boxes.

Watch the footage below.

Additionally, Atlus announced a PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita demo will launch tomorrow, January 8 in Japan. You’ll be able to play all five characters through an action stage selected and configured for the demo and battle the boss “Belial.” There won’t be any story parts, so you won’t be able to use the demo save data for the full game.

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is due out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita on January 14 in Japan and spring 2016 in North America.
