Eye straining Okami screens paint a faint picture of the Wii-make

okwii.jpgIf you’re hungering for news about Okami, Capcom has a taste of media that probably won’t satiate. We got a tip from Amir (thanks!!) pointing to the first screenshots of Ready at Dawn’s work over at the Capcom Store. The images are tiny (actual size posted!) and nothing appears out of the ordinary. Even the product page is vague about new features, like widescreen support or anything beyond motion control. However, March is almost here and more details about any additions should be coming soon.



Update: The Capcom product page mentions Okami Wii will have “new Widescreen (16:9) and 480p progressive scan support.” I’m not sure if that is enough to get people who bought the PlayStation 2 version to pick Okami up again, but then again Okami wasn’t exactly flying off store shelves. Hopefully, things will be different this time around.

    Capcom sucks at taking screenshots

  • Widescreen is nice, but the fact that the teeny tiny screenshots have additional black bars on either side of the screen suggests not…

  • Any news if the Wii version of Okami will have new content? Or is it basically just a port, like Resident Evil 4? And since the game is coming out for the Wii, is it fair to expect good, if not great sales? Would that also mean that (wishful thinking) Clover Studios would come back to life? Sigh.

  • Cruds

    Those bars are there to center the picture in it’s frame. Even DS titles have bars those on that web page. And clover studios is incarnated as Platinum Games. So far all they got is an website and a Facebook account.

  • @Mike – Some of the Clover Studios team was absorbed into Capcom, the other members went on to form Platinum Games so a reunion is unlikely. Also Capcom has said before they don’t plan to focus on catering to the PS2 audience, which suggests little if any extra content aside from the widescreen support will be in Okami Wii.

  • Thanks for that tidbit Spencer. :) I bet Okami Wii would be a great pickup for gamers who’ve never tried the game in the PS2. Which reminds me, I haven’t finished the game yet. I’ve just defeated Orochi for the first time, but as far as I know, there’s going to be another showdown.

    Anyone here who’s finished Okami yet?
