If you're a lover of gorgeous graphics (especially of the 2D variety), you've also got to be a lover of Vanillaware--the Japanese development studio responsible for such sexy games as Princess Crown, Odin Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
All of the above should be happy to hear that the folks at Vanillaware seem to be working on a new game. They haven't announced anything as of yet, but all signs point to that happening sooner rather than later.
For instance, Atlus (Odin Sphere's publisher) recently filed a trademark for Gungnir--the name of Odin's spear. Also, Vanillaware founder and president George Kamitani recently posted a painting of “The Three Graces” (Greek goddesses of beauty, charm and creativity) on his company’s website.
Considering Vanillaware tackled Norse mythology in Odin's Sphere (Odin is the chief god in Norse paganism), it doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to suggest the studio may be returning to that topic--and/or Greek mythology--in its next release (or two).
