The full release can be read below:

IRVINE, Calif. — Nov. 18, 2015 –Odin Sphere Leifthrasir presents the interwoven tale of five incredible characters – Gwendolyn, the fearsome Valkyrie caught between family and love; Cornelius, the hapless lover turned into a beast (albeit a cute and cuddly one); Mercedes, the reluctant Fairy Queen; Oswald, the blood-thirsty Shadow Knight; and Velvet, the mysterious forest witch – as chapters in a storybook, read by a young girl. So naturally, it’s fitting that the complete HD remake of one of the most vaunted games from the PlayStation®2 era is receiving a premium “Storybook Edition”. Exclusive to the PlayStation®4, the “Storybook Edition” will be available in spring 2016 for $79.99/CA$99.99. Pre-orders for Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition” and the standard versions of the game are now open at game retailers.
Contents of the “Storybook Edition” include:
64-page Hardcover Art Book – Filled with the original drawings from the legendary George Kamitani and Vanillaware.
Potion Recipe T-shirt – This large-size t-shirt is emblazoned with a helpful reminder of one of the more common uses of Alchemy in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir: turning the living Mandragora plant creatures (Habaneristos, in this case) into potions vital for survival.
Collector’s Metal Slipcase – The PS4 game will come nestled in a special metal slipcase with the game’s key art on the front, and a not-yet-revealed image on the reverse.
Art Print – Also included with the game will be a high-quality art print with another not-yet-revealed (but different) design.
Premium Outer Box – All the contents in the premium edition will be packaged in a large, sturdy outer box.
To reiterate, the Odin Sphere Leifthrasir “Storybook Edition” exclusively contains the PlayStation 4 version of the game. However, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will also be available for the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita. The PS4, PS3 and PS Vita versions of Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will include a softcover version of the 64-page art book at participating retailers. The non-premium editions will cost $59.99/CA$79.99, $49.99/CA$64.99, and $39.99/CA$54.99 for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita respectively.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is a total overhaul of the original PS2 game. From completely hand-redrawn graphics and refined gameplay mechanics to optimizations for the release consoles, the game fully encapsulates an artfully elegant tale steeped in Norse mythology with all the makings of a tragic opera. The five main characters each traverse their own storylines, be it as friends, lovers, or mortal enemies, punctuated with sharp, precise combat against fantastical enemies and dragons – Odin Sphere Leifthrasir gives players the sensation of playing in a fairytale of Wagnerian proportions as the main characters all vie to regain stability in their world of warring kingdoms.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is the latest collaboration between ATLUS and Vanillaware, two names with a history of creating immersive, engaging games with a fanatical level of attention to detail. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB, and will be available in spring 2016 for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. For more information, please visit http://www.atlus.com/odinsphere
