All Articles: Okami HD
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.
You can learn more about both games after the break. (more…)
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.
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.
