Reissues, or remasters, or definitive editions, or HD editions, or whatever you want to call them, are growing and becoming more and more popular. Gamers are clamoring at getting their favorite classic franchises on bigger TVs with better textures, better lighting, more frames per second, use multiple graphics cards, multiple monitors, etc. Game companies will oblige as they can make more money off older IPs that are already finished at a fraction of the price. 2016 is the best year so far for these reissues.
Odin Sphere: Lefthriser
Odin Sphere topped out here because it did more than just give us better visuals and higher frame rates. Leifthrasir gave us enhanced gameplay and better balancing. More content and more everything. This is a step up and a true remaster that most games won’t touch. Leifthrasir plays better and feels like the original vision Atlus had. It’s one of the most beautiful games ever created with rich characters and stories. Don’t miss out on this.
