Atlus picks up Odin Sphere

California-based publisher bringing Vanillaware's action RPG for the PlayStation 2 to North America in May.


Gamers who love Japanese games but are too lazy to learn the language or import games from the country have likely purchased a game from Atlus. The publisher has been specializing in localizing games previously released in Japan only, and continues its trend with Odin Sphere, from developer Vanillaware (Princess Crown for the Sega Saturn). The game is an action role-playing game for the PlayStation 2 and will be in stores in "late spring." In Odin Sphere, players take on the role of warrior princess Gwendolyn and must help stop fight a bloody feud between fairies and warriors.
