Square confirms Odin Sphere for Europe release next year

Atlus' awesome PS2 action RPG, Odin Sphere, looked like it may never have seen the light of day over here. But Square Enix has confirmed otherwise today, pencilling it in for an early 2008 release.

Okay, so that's almost a year behind the US and Japanese launches, where it hit shelves in May, but considering its spiritual predecessor, Princess Crown (Saturn) never made it outside of Japan, we're grateful.

You take control of a princess named Gwendowlyn - daughter of Odin - who is tasked with uncovering the secrets of a prophecy that could lead to the end of the world.

Odin Sphere is particularly special for its unique 2D art style that looks like something out of a fairytale story book. You'll see what we mean in the screens below.
