Odin Sphere Leifthrasir might be impossible to pronounce, but it looks damn good. The JRPG is a remake of the 2007 original, and boasts vibrant remastered graphics and retuned combat.

It keeps the same gorgeous art style, but everything just looks so crisp. We were able to recently able to play a demo of Leifthrasir and get reacquainted with some familiar faces.

In this 14-minute demo, Gwendolyn and Oswald both get a chance to shine. In the Forest of Elrit, Gwendolyn faces off against a giant Venus Flytrap in a mini-boss battle and brews up some life-saving potions. Meanwhile, Oswald battles his way through the rooftops and stony halls of Nebulapolis and picks up the Vile Rush skill.

It has the desired, utterly devastating effect.

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be released on June 7, 2016 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation Vita.
