It's no secret that HD ports are everywhere, from physical collections to individual digital re-releases. However, there is one re-release in the pipeline that showcases just how a visually enhanced port should be handled.

I've only played a little bit of Dragons Crown, but I believe they both play very similarly, aside from the fact that in Odin Sphere you play as different characters as you progress and complete each person's story, their aren't any different weapons for each character (their weapons are unique arms called Psyphers which are strengthened by leveling up and absorbing Phozons from defeated enemies or from growing food/plants, as you level up your Psyphers' level you gain access to stronger abilites, for instance the first character shortly unlocks a whirlwind power) also I believe in Dragon's Crown while it was still side scrolling you could move up and down instead of just side to side, this wasn't the case for Odin Sphere IIRC.

thanks for the reply, it seems that it can be fun then, kinda like muramasa, i loved that game aswell, and the character movement just left and right seems a bit better for side scrollers, cause in dragons crown the 4 direction sometimes wore a bit annoying with so much going on the screen (ps vita) i sometimes lose track of where i am and other times im just throwing attacks at nothing :D

I don't normally reply to the comments, but kingdom18 is correct. All VanillaWare titles share a similar art style. Dragon's Crown is the only one I've played that's isometric. The others are all side scrollers. Muramusa is the spiritual successor to Odin Sphere, and both games look and play quite similarly. Odin Sphere is set in more of a medieval, European-esque setting loosely inspired by Norse mythology(the key word being loosely), whereas Muramusa has a traditional Japanese setting, but if you like the art and gameplay style of one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

Halo 2 Anniversary shows how HD remasters should be. The redone multiplayer Anniversary maps are stunning. Especially Lockout.

It's a ground-up remake, not a remaster.
