Okami HD release date set
Sony has confirmed that Okami HD will be hitting PS4 on December 12 in the west.
Capcom has announced that the long-rumored Okami HD release date in Japan will be December 21, 2017.
No details were confirmed on available platforms, although it’s a safe bet to assume it’ll hit PS4 and Xbox One as previously leaked.
The game will support high-definition and 4K visuals, and will also include a number of enhanced features over the original version of the game.
There’s no word on a western release at this time, although we expect Capcom to make some sort of announcement on this soon enough.
Okami was originally released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2006, and was the brainchild of Clover Studios, which featured a number of veteran game designers including Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami.
The game won plaudits for its sumptuous, sumi-e aesthetic, as well as its setting, which combines several myths and legends from Japanese history.
Okami also employs a unique mechanic known as the Celestial Brush, which factors into various aspects of the game, such as combat and puzzles.
Utilising this feature, players can call up a canvas allowing them to draw on screen, which can be used for anything from fixing a bridge to attacking enemies by drawing a line to ‘cut’ through them.
