Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Was Originally a Simple HD Port

on July 25, 2015 3:51 PM

Vanillaware president George Kamitani recently updated the studio’s site with a short message to fans. The message, translated by Siliconera, reads,

What was originally going to be just a port, had become a big remodel, with an end that looked further away after starting it. That said, it feels as though I’ve left [Kentaro] Ohnishi with a burden for handling this project, but again, I’m proud of him.

With this opportunity, I’m truly grateful to have this title get to have a second performance with you all, once again.

2016 will mark its ninth year since its last presentation.

I hope you all look forward to Odin Sphere Leifthrasir.

Kamitani was one of the founding members of Vanillaware, made up of former Atlus employees, in 2002.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will release on January 14, 2016 for Japan and sometime later that year for North America.
