The retro version of Odin Sphere has arrived. As part of Atlus’ promotions for Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir, an 8-bit adaptation was promised if fans put out 28,888 tweets related to the game. The goal was met before the campaign’s November 30, 2015 end date, development began, and now people can play the game.
In the browser-based version of Odin Sphere, players control Gwendolyn as she fights monsters in a forest. Pressing X attacks and Z is for jumping. If you press Z again while she’s in the air, she’ll glide. The goal is to fight for as long as possible. Defeating opponents allows her to earn experience, and more powerful opponents appear as she levels up. Her attack power will be boosted as she levels up. Also, some opponents will drop items.
The Odin Sphere browser game is entirely in Japanese, but there’s no language barrier. It’s immediately available to play for free online. It will be released on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4 on June 7, 2016.
