The lights are on
Update: Capcom confirmed the game is coming to North America and Europe this fall for $19.99. It's available through PlayStation Network. This HD version includes PlayStation Move and trophy support.
Ōkami HD brings Amaterasu’s epic tale to the PS3 with fully integrated HD graphics and 16:9 aspect ratio. The trademark sumi-e ink art style lends itself perfectly to HD allowing players to experience more of the awe-inspiring world displayed in greater detail than ever before.
Original story: Capcom is releasing a HD remaster of Okami for PlayStation later this year in Japan. Details were confirmed in the latest issue of Famitsu.
The game is called Okami Zekkie-ban, which roughly translates to Okami Magnificent Version. This version will have Move support, but It's unclear if this is based off the Wii release of Okami or the original PS2 game.
Capcom USA has not confirmed if Okami HD is coming to North America at this time.
I'm skeptical about the Move support (the motion controls for the Wii version did NOT play well), but other than that...
OH MY JESUS
this is the greatest news ever.
This is amazing news! I hope we get a Viewtiful Joe HD Collection soon.
This game is a classic. I hope they base the HD edition off the PS2 original....
"Magnificent Version," only in Japan
By all that is holy, please come to America.
Please release this in the states.
Okay, it's coming. That's good.
how about just a new Okami? They're my current-gen titles and I want them NOW!
Aw yeah! HD version of Okami, WITH the superior motion controls introduced in the Wii game? I'm there! I already played through this twice - once on PS2 with my college roommate, and again on my own on Wii. Seriously, the learning curve is higher, but the controls are much better than on PS2. I also played through, and loved, Okamiden on DS.
I'm glad that Capcom hasn't forgotten this. This is very much like Beyond Good & Evil, where the re-releases are just building up the amount of people who have actually played them. Which is nothing but good news.
Honestly love this game can't wait to play it on my PS3!
