Okami HD release date confirmed with 4K support


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.
