All Articles: Okami HD

PSN Today: Assassin’s Creed III, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Okami HD, More

Sony has added another massive mess of new games to the PlayStation Store, so let’s not waste any time…

This week’s biggest new release is, without a doubt, Assassin’s Creed III. The PS3 game brings the Assassins versus Templars feud to Revolutionary times and marks the end of the AC trilogy as we know it. But never fear, Assassin’s Creed spinoffs are coming, such as the Vita-exclusive Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which is also available to download today.

Speaking of PS3/Vita pairings, Criterion’s Need For Speed: Most Wanted is available in both a PS3 and Vita version. Each edition of the game will have to purchased separately, but you can challenge those cops whether you’re at home or on the road.

Capcom’s beloved Okami has also been added to the PSN today in a special HD remake. If you’d prefer something a little more action-packed, the Twisted Metal reboot is also available on the PS Store today. Rounding out the rest of the PS3 releases are two Move-based titles: Sports Champions 2 and Toy Story Mania.

Vita owners will also get three more games to choose from: the Norse mythoogy of Ragnarok Odyssey, the brain training of Smart As…, and the bricky lit of Lego Lord of the Rings.

Hit the jump for more information on all of these (as well as one PS2 Classic and two PSP games) and check out the PlayStation Blog for all the latest game add-ons recently added to the PlayStation Store. (more…)

Okami HD with Move support heading to PSN

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.
