Comment from Mota:

It’s finally about to be released. I will try to play the Vita version.

It fills me with joy that the world of Odin Sphere can now be enjoyed in the palm of your hand! I also love the music in the game, so people who play it for the first time will have a good time.

Mota’s Twitter account is: @nemuke. The illustration portrays all five heroes from the game.

An additional illustration to celebrate Odin Sphere Leifthrasir‘s upcoming launch was released via the Vanillaware Twitter account, from designer Emika Kida who was responsible for some of the character animations in the game.
