In a move that is sure to win back fans after a series of DLC controversies, Capcom has unveiled a high definition version of cult classic Okami exclusively for the PlayStation Network.
The PS2 game has already enjoyed a reprise on the Wii, and although there was a learning curve with the motion controls, it proved a more visceral experience painting Amaterasu’s sumi-e ink spells with the Wiimote than with a pair of analogue sticks. Now PlayStation 3 users will enjoy the same fluidity, as the game is compatible with the Move and with incorporated PS3 Trophies.
If you have not played the original, then this will be well worth the $19.99 price tag, although I am personally hoping that Capcom has a sequel up their sleeve.
Okami HD will be available on the PSN this Fall.
