With Odin Sphere Leifthrasir set to release in Japan in 9 days, the countdown series featuring guest illustrations and messages for the upcoming Vanillaware remake continues.
The featured guest illustrator for today is Shinichi Kameoka, founder of Brownie Brown and who has worked as a character designer on games such as Seiken Densetsu: Legend of Manaand Magical Vacation. Additionally, he worked on Mother 3 as a producer.
Comment from Shinichi Kameoka:
While it might be presumptuous to say, This is Kameoka from Brownie Brown and I was allowed to draw a supporting illustration for “Odin Sphere Leifthrasir” (it’s hard to say!).
The release countdown has started, congratulations!
I am personally looking forward to how much the quality has improved and how fun it is.
Cheers on your hard work, director Ohnishi!
I owe a large favor to George, I’m very glad.
In the future, please thank us when our game releases＼(^_^)／
Let’s have a drink when that’s settled. I am truly thankful!
Shinichi Kameoka’s Twitter account is: @ShintaKameoka.
The illustration is of the cursed prince Cornelius, showing the duality of his appearances.
Tomorrow’s illustration for 8 days until release will feature the manga artist Hekiru Hikawa, known for “Pani Poni” and “Candy Pop Nightmare.”
An additional illustration to celebrate Odin Sphere Leifthrasir‘s upcoming launch was released via the Vanillaware Twitter account, from character designer Kouichi Maenou. He is responsible for the “Text Archive” system in Leifthrasir, which allows players to review information as they play the game.
