All Articles: Okami HD
One of 2017’s biggest games, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, has made its way to the Xbox One this week, and it’s now available to download through the Xbox Games Store. Capcom’s Okami HD joins the 100-player battle royale on the Xbox One this week, and a new generation of players will be able to experience the action-adventure in an (optional) widescreen format with enhanced visuals (including 1080p and 4K resolutions).
Finally today, Infinite Fall’s young adult adventure game, Night in the Woods, will make its way to the Xbox One.

Fresh off this year’s PlayStation Experience, Sony has added a fresh batch of new games to the PlayStation Store.
Leading the pack (yes, that’s a dog joke) is Okami HD, a PS4 re-release of Capcom’s beloved action adventure. Players will once again be able to follow Amaterasu on her quest to defeat Orochi, and the game’s sumi-e ink art style is now available in 4K resolution.
Going slightly smaller is the launch of Lucas Pope’s Papers Please on the Vita. The Communist immigration inspector simulation made a big splash on the PC in 2013, and a portable version is now available for Sony’s handheld.
Finally this week, Square Enix will bring Romancing Saga 2 to the PS4 and Vita on Friday, December 15. The turn-based RPG was originally released for the Super NES in 1993, this new version will include enhanced graphics, as well as a new dungeon, two new character classes, a new “Avalonian Gardens” game system, an additional scenario, and a New Game Plus mode.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the wildly popular battle royale from PUBG Corporation, will make its way to the Xbox One this week, and Microsoft has teamed up with the developer to sell a special Retail Edition of the game. However, prospective buyers might like to know the box only contains a download code for the game.
Elsewhere on store shelves this week, Capcom will release Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – Gold Edition for the PS4 and Xbox One. The Gold Edition includes the original game, as well as all three downloadable expansions (Banned Footage Vol. 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2, and End of Zoe). The Not A Hero expansion, which stars series mainstay Chris Redfield, will also be available as a free download for all players this week.
Speaking of Capcom, the publisher will also launch Okami HD for the PS4 and Xbox One this week with graphics “enhanced for modern displays.”
Finally, Edmund McMillen (one half of Team Meat) will bring his nwe platformer, The End Is Nigh, to the Switch.
A complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)
A pair of games are on the move this afternoon. Capcom has announced that Okami HD will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this year, and Frictional has said that Soma is in development for the Xbox One.

Rumor: Okami HD is in the works for the PS4 and Xbox One
Okami began life in 2006 as one of the last major releases on the PS2, and has since grown to become one of the most acclaimed video games of all time alongside re-releases on the Wii (in 2008) and PS3 (in 2012). But after talking to apair of retail contacts, Kotaku UK is reporting the game will likely come to the PS4 and Xbox One in December:
The evidence we’ve seen shows that two different European retail chains have recently added Okami HD to their internal upcoming physical releases calendar. Both retail chains are in different parts of the EU, and both list the game as releasing on 12th December 2017. The detail of the physical release is especially interesting, as the 2012 HD release on PS3 was only available as a download in the west (despite the Japanese boxed release featuring multi-region language support).
It’s easy to discount placeholder dates from retailers, but Capcom has shown a particular fondness for remastered re-releases in 2017. The publisher has re-released Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 and Mega Man 7-10 on new platforms this year, with Dragon’s Dogma and Resident Evil Revelations still to come. I have no trouble believing an Okami HD re-release is also in the works.
Are you still waiting patiently for Okami HD to be added to the PlayStation Store. Well, your wait is almost over.
Yesterday, Capcom announced that the game will be available to download exclusively from the PSN on October 30. For just $19.99, players will get the PS2/Wii classic along with Trophy support, 1080p high definition graphics, and Move support.
And be sure to check out the brand new Tokyo Game Show trailer above.
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.
