Her powers, augmented by the addition of a skill tree, include the ability to tossing a wave of icicles and summon a swarm of spears.

Atlus has released a new trailer and screenshots showcasing Odin Sphere Leifthrasir’s combat and skill systems. Fans of the original will want to take note because the upcoming version will feature nearly 200 new abilities and skills.

For those who prefer the original setup, Classic Mode is being included that retains the visual upgrades but reverts back to the old mechanics.
