Capcom sure loves churning out ports, but in the case of Okami, we can’t really fault them. The unique cel-shaded adventure heavily influenced by Japanese mythology hit the PS2 back in 2006, with a Wii port following in 2008. Unfortunately, despite receiving critical acclaim – including numerous ‘Game of the Year’ awards, sales were relatively poor. Perhaps Okami will find more of an audience on PSN, which is where it’s scheduled to land later this fall.
Along with obligatory HD visuals — which will no doubt look striking given Okami’s vibrant art style, the title will include PlayStation Move support and trophies. According to Capcom, “players can take advantage of the PlayStation Move motion controller and naturally make brush strokes with the essential Celestial Brush to defeat enemies and solve puzzles.” Alternatively, players can opt to use the regular DualShock 3 pad.
Priced at a palatable $19.99, look for Okami HD on PSN later this fall.
