It’s called Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir. One of the most beautiful PlayStation 2 games ever made is going HD.

The newly announced Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir not only has HD graphics, but also new enemies and new bosses as well as tweaked gameplay. The HD version does keep the 2D scrolling gameplay, and there is a “Classic Mode” for fans of the original gameplay.

Odin Sphere: Leiftrasir will be out on the PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita next January in Japan. No word yet on an international release.
