By Jenni . September 23, 2008 . 3:37pm

You don’t even have to play Princess Crown to witness the profound effect the Sega Saturn (and Playstation Portable) title has had on its spiritual successor Odin Sphere. While the games tend to have different feels while playing (for example:…

Odin Sphere: More than just a pretty picture

By Louise . May 18, 2007 . 4:43pm

A side-scrolling brawler featuring 2D sprites.  Same old, same old, right? WRONG! Vanillaware’s latest PS2 game, Odin Sphere is anything but ordinary.  On paper, it sounds like your run of the mill beat-em-up with light RPG elements, but in practice it took my breath away. Sure, it’s the same old story about Valkyries and King […]

Stepping into Odin Sphere

By Spencer . May 10, 2007 . 2:28pm

I’ve been lucky enough to play Odin Sphere a few weeks before the game is officially released in North America and so far it’s been fantastic. When you start Odin Sphere you’re in a library where a little girl reads books with each character’s story. The first book available is “Valkyrie” where you play as […]

Discussing Odin Sphere with Atlus

By Spencer . April 23, 2007 . 2:06pm

Odin Sphere looks fantastic, but other than the eye candy there is little information about the meat of the game. We’re so close to the game’s worldwide release in May and I had to find out more about it since so many readers expressed interest in it. So I contacted Atlus with a few questions […]

Atlus sent an e-mail with Odin Sphere’s release date, May 22nd for North America, which is only five days after the game’s release in a Japan. Another surprise is the US version of Odin Sphere gives players choice on what language they want to hear voiceovers. You can select the new English voices or stick […]

Watch: Odin Sphere US trailer

By Spencer . March 29, 2007 . 6:23pm

Something that was missing in all of the other Odin Sphere videos was gameplay footage. The new US trailer answers the question and Odin Sphere plays like a 2D side scrolling action game. See the brilliant looking footage past the break and if visit the official site to pick up some wallpapers and download a […]

Odin Sphere screenshots, this time in English

By Spencer . February 14, 2007 . 5:55pm

Atlus opened up the official US site for Odin Sphere today and there are a bunch of new screens of the five main characters: Gwendolyn, Cornellus, Mercedes, Oswald and Velvet. The art still looks amazing, but none of the shots show how the game plays.

Yesterday, I was watching this trailer of Odin Sphere, an RPG developed by Vanillaware who made Princess Crown for the Saturn. Today, I get an e-mail confirming from Atlus USA that it is coming out late this spring for the Playstation 2! Odin Sphere begins with a war between the fairies of Ringford and warriors […]
