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 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.
