Behold the Odin Sphere Lifthrasir “Storybook” Edition! Atlus touts it as their largest Limited Edition to date! Heres what it includes:

  • 64-page Hardcover Art Book – Filled with the original drawings from the legendary George Kamitani and Vanillaware.

  • Potion Recipe T-shirt – This large-size t-shirt is emblazoned with a helpful reminder of one of the more common uses of Alchemy in Odin Sphere Leifthrasir: turning the living Mandragora plant creatures (Habaneristos, in this case) into potions vital for survival.

  • Collector’s Metal Slipcase – The PS4 game will come nestled in a special metal slipcase with the game’s key art on the front, and a not-yet-revealed image on the reverse.

  • Art Print – Also included with the game will be a high-quality art print with another not-yet-revealed (but different) design.

  • Premium Outer Box – All the contents in the premium edition will be packaged in a large, sturdy outer box.

This version of the game is exclusive to PS4 and will retail for $79.99! This does indeed seem like Atlus’s biggest Limited Edition to date! It will be amazing to see how they top this one in the future!

However what of the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game? Or the people who don’t want to spend the extra money on the Limited Edition? Well never fear our friends at Atlus have you covered!
