Okamiden Paints Path To North America

By Spencer . April 20, 2010 . 8:30am

image Okamiden takes place months after the events in Okami and follows Chibiterasu, a young sun god turned wolf. Like his predecessor, Chibiterasu has a celestial brush with some added powers. The Shirabe brush lets the little wolf direct his human partner.

 

While Japan gets Okamiden sometime this year, Capcom is holding the Western release back until 2011.

 

See, those trademarks we discovered in Europe and North America weren’t for nothing.

    Seems the title is two words now going by the trailer (Okami Den)? We might have to wait for PR to be sure.

    I seriously didnt notice that both Okamiden and Ghost Trick was confirmed for a US release. All the attention has been on Marvel vs Capcom 3. Oh well, I always knew both games will get localized anyway, unlike a certain other company wherein you must pray and perform rituals just to localize games and end up in disappointment. Overall, a really awesome Capcom day today!

    Seriously does it take so long to localize a game like Okamiden?It’s not FFXIII for God’s sake.

      They can’t localize a game that isn’t done yet.

        Thanks for the info.

    This is 2011, too…? =_=

    Haha, if Okamiden’s localization won’t hit until 2011, I guess I shouldn’t keep wishing on that star for a 2010 Last Ranker localization!

    Commenting seriously now: Okamiden’s Japanese release date is still uncertain, so if they’ve been aiming for Q4 2010 the entire time this seems sensible to me.

      Totally agree. December 2010 is still this year so the release may not be that far off. A drawn out release date may have explained why Capcom didn’t say anything about it at TGS last year either.

    Thank God they’re localizing it. Screw them for putting it off.

    It isn’t a Clover-developed game, that’s for sure. I’ll continue looking into it, though.
