Square Enix will be treating us Europeans to Odin Sphere early next year.
Its a 2D role-playing game for PS2 that was released simultaneously in Japan and the US during summer, and is stuffed full of hand-drawn, charming artwork you could pause and hang on your wall.
The idea is to fight your way through all the enemies in side-scrolling levels as quickly and effectively as you can, swapping between five different heroes to tackle different areas.
Unfortunately it gets a little repetitive after a while, but the way its character designs, varied and exquisite backgrounds, glorious soundtrack, considered voice acting and engaging storyline pull together in a consistent way is nothing short of marvellous.
