Odin Sphere was originally released on the PlayStation 2 in 2007, and now it's getting an HD remake on Sony platforms called Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. Publisher Atlus confirmed today that the remake is coming to North America.
The acclaimed RPG from Vanillaware is being overhauled, and Atlus promises that it won't just be a visual upgrade.
