Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir launches Q2 2016 in Europe

Atlus CEO on overseas expansion.

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir

Atlus’ western branch has yet to officially announce Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir for release in Europe, but Atlus CEO Naoto Hiraoka mentioned the game’s European release in a PlayStation Blog Japan post today.

The blog post is actually a complete version of the comments provided by Hiraoka in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation.

“In terms of the marketplace, from here on I want to put even more strength into our overseas efforts,” Hiraoka said. “Up until a few years ago, there were some things, including the development of our international website, that we left to staff overseas. However, in recent years we’ve been wanting to make sure everyone gets the same information, so we made it so you can jump to the global website from the home page of the official site in Japanese.”

Hiraoka continued: “As you can also see from the close Japanese and foreign release dates for Dragon’s Crown in 2013 due to its online elements, the barrier between the domestic and overseas market is dying. As for Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir, it will go on sale in America on June 7 and in Europe in Q2, and while it is slightly delayed from the Japanese release date, it will not only be localized into English, but also French, Italian, German, Spanish for a total of five languages.”

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita. A demo is currently available in Japan.
