Atlus has released a new trailer and screenshots for the upcoming action role-playing game Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, introducing the alchemy and cooking features.
In the original game, brewing potions only came down to obtaining a recipe and mixing a singular item with a liquid source of magic called a “material.” However, Leifthrasir allows the merging of existing potions with an item to create different mixtures.
Basically, brewing can be done by either combining a material and item(s), or by combining a potion with an item. You couldn’t do the latter in the original, so it adds variety to the process. In addition, potions can now be merged with each other and/or food to increase potency (which is based on a grade system), and more potion/mixing combinations have been introduced. It’s also no longer necessary to have recipes in order to create these bottles of magic. Players can figure out combinations by randomly mixing, matching, and hoping for the best.
The biggest update to Odin Sphere’s cooking mechanics are the Rest Areas players will discover during levels, complete with the renowned Pooka chef, Maury. His divine dishes will restore HP and raise players’ experience points.
Besides the changes above, adventures in Erion will still have the quintessential Odin Sphere experience of chasing down recipes, hunting for Mandragoras, planting seeds, growing food, and more.
Odin Sphere Leifthrasir will be released for the PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 in North America on June 7, 2016 and in Europe in June 2016.
