Fans of Capcom’s seminal action-adventure Okami may want to keep their eyes peeled next week.
The series’ official Japanese Twitter account is teasing some sort of announcement pertaining to the critically-acclaimed title, which received a high-definition makeover on PlayStation Network last summer.
“Hello, this is Okami news,” it reads. “Sorry I’ve been kind of out of touch lately, but I have the feeling we’ll be able to drop a fresh announcement like WHAM! Around the beginning of Golden Week, so please look forward to it. Right now we’re on track with preparations.”
For reference, Golden Week takes place April 29 – May 5 and sees a series of holidays take place in Japan.
If that wasn’t enough to whet our appetite, Japan’s gaming bible, Famitsu Magazine, is also dropping some big hints for its next issue, out May 9. However, it’s worth noting the teaser does not explicitly mention Okami.
It reads: “The new game to bring fans tears of happiness finally comes to life! A must-see!”
While this is open to interpretation, a new Okami game would certainly fit the bill. We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
