Play Odin Sphere Leifthrasir in 8-bit before you check it out in HD

Twitter campaign unlocked 8-bit version of the RPG

Atlus is bringing Odin Sphere, the PlayStation 2 role-playing game, to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita next year for a full HD remaster. But alongside that project, the company has committed itself to remaking the game again — in 8-bit, thanks to 28,888 Twitter fans.

The Japanese branch of the company recently unveiled the social media campaign to create an 8-bit version of Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, as the remaster is called. After clearing the bar set at 28,888 tweets, Atlus confirmed on Twitter that it will produce the project, which it had already showed off in a short, strange trailer. You can watch that above.

You'll be able to play the throwback version of Odin Sphere in your browser once it launches. Atlus will also release Twitter icons and wallpapers inspired by the retro take on the game.

No word on a release date yet for the 8-bit project. You'll be able to play Odin Sphere in HD sometime in spring 2016.

You can take a peek at what Odin Sphere's more modern update will look like below.
