    Sweet. I always to play it but the PS2 version of the game has always been too high to justify.

    Never played this game, but it has been recommended to me a few times. And people laugh at me for having a Vita.

    Yeah, but I think the HD remake is going to be more than just a new skin for the current consoles. Theres going to be new content as well was being able to play the old version as well. I think.

    THERE IS

    Odin Sphere originally came out for the PS2 in 2007. It's newly announced HD counterpart is dubbed Odin Sphere Leifdrasir, and will not only feature high-definition visuals, but also new enemies, bosses, battle actions, animations, and maps.

    Enhancements have also been made to the combat system, and new features have been added to make the overall gameplay smoother and faster. Odin Sphere's original 2D scrolling gameplay is still in the HD version via "Classic Mode."

    I bought this game like 2 years ago as a PS2 Classic on PSN. but never touched it because of time.
    Now that a HD release is gonna come and is going to look more gorgeous than ever I'll be sure to play it.
    I really like the art Vanillaware give to their games. I came buckets with Muramasa on Vita.

    I forgot
    Just a note, there's only a JP release announcement ATM, no US or EU.

    Which isn't much of a problem, because Region free and all, but it's an RPG so have fun with text :P

    I hope this does get an English release, though, I never got around to playing this game but it looks interesting enough.

    I never said it wasn't ever going to release, they just haven't announced it for other regions :P At best the US will get a localization after a couple months, sure, but Atlus is notorious for making EU regions wait a good year or more for their own localization.

    But again, that doesn't matter much cuz yay region free lol.
