Well that didn't take long. Here's the long and short of it - it's being brought over by Atlus USA, who are excellent at localizations (and handled the original Odin Sphere's localization beautifully on PS2), and all platforms will see a digital and physical release.
Change the Fate of the World When the End of Days Draws Near in Odin Sphere LeifthrasirSo no release window, no nothing - might come out in December 10th, 2016 for all we know. Don't care. Obviously,
The Perfected HD Project from ATLUS and Vanillaware Remakes the 2007 Original
Vanillaware, the team behind the hit side-scrolling title Dragon's Crown is working on a new authentic HD project with Atlus to recreate and perfect Odin Sphere - the 2D action RPG with Norse Mythology roots. Told in five tales from the perspectives of five unique protagonists, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir expresses the original game with glorious HD graphics in Vanillaware's renowned style, expanded worlds with new monsters, fully voiced story scenes, and a fine-tuned refreshing combat and RPG system to perfect the gameplay. Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be available as a physical and digital release for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita in 2016 in North America.
More details about the game will be available later.
It goes without saying that I'm going to have to buy this game four times, now.
(1) The initial Japanese release on Vita, because I won't be able to wait, and also art book.
(2) PS4 physical copy upon localized release.
(3) Vita physical copy upon localized release (for the collection), and
(4) Vita digital copy because this thing is never leaving my Vita, ever.
