    So does anyone else want a new Okami game? Maybe for Wii U?

    • Grape Monet

      If nothing else, then a Wii U port of Okami HD, hopefully with that weird squiggle-glitch-thing fixed. Or just a fix for the PSN version. I really hate the squiggle-effect; it ruins most of the cutscenes for me.

    • Herok♞

      Wiiu would be perfect, I liked Okamiden more then the Original, the touch screen really worked wonders for it.

      • British_Otaku

        Really? I found Okamiden’s faults to stick out far too much (the story, the fighting mechanics, the revisiting of old environments, no swimming, less end game, the camera, so many forced fight sequences) to enjoy the game for the tactile drawing interface over the original Okami. It was definitely a treat next to Phantom Hourglass though. >_>

        The Wii version (and perhaps the PS3 version with move) seem to be the definitive experiences even if I’m ignoring the credits, filters and missing content in some regional versions.

        • Herok♞

          I found the characters to be more enjoyable, the story more interesting, I literally played the game nonstop to completion, over a weekend

    • Kaetsu

      Wii U would be perfect. I loved the touch controls with Okamiden and after seeing what Wind Waker HD did with the power of the Wii U I’m sure a sequel would look great! Nintendo is also on good terms with Platinum now. I also read that Kamiya said if Nintendo wants to fund a sequel he will get working on it right away.

      • British_Otaku

        Kamiya wants to do it, but he will need Capcom to share or sell the IP to them first.

      Heck yeah; such an awesome series.

      Personally I’d like it for Vita OR 3DS; no double-build though because the Vita/3DS each have their own strengths and are never utilized with these cross builds (thinking particularly of Blackgate here).
      Personally I like the Vita touch much more than stylus, and think the touch would apply much more to the core, original Okami style. Of course, Okamiden was a pretty rad title gameplay-wise, and showed the stylus works well also.
      Whichever; I don’t really care. I just would much rather Capcom not let another of their amazing series to fall off into oblivion (Onimusha, Rival Schools, Powerstone, etc etc).

  • Chris Yuen

    Free on SEA PSN Ps+ starting yesterday, along with a few other titles: Borderlands (yea, the first title=.=) /Okami HD (aw yeah!)/Resident Evil Code: Vernonica X/Uncharted 2 GOTY ed (already owned it)/LBP Vita (might try it for once)/MotorStorm RC/When Vikings Attack/Phase shift

    Not as fabulous compared to the usual NA/EU PSN giveaways, but SEA players finally get a couple of decent titles. Not bad. I might just get PS+ for this month.

    • Pinwheel

      I wish you had put a disclaimer saying that was PS+ at the start. I had a tiny hope inside me praying it was free for all.

  • PS VITA VERSION! Please~

  • Darkrise

    But for how long.

    • Rytan

      Hopefully forever. Because I’d love to get Okami HD cheap around Christmas.

  • Monterossa

    I bought it because I heard it’s a very good game but it disappointed me big time, with its fake voice over that annoyed me to death, unable to turn off and unskipable cutscenes.

    • British_Otaku

      I can only recommend that you soldier on and grow to enjoy the other aspects even if the voice over style is rather weird (and fine for me).

      You can skip the cutscenes on the Wii (and probably PS3) version of the game, I guess you might only have a working PS2 or just have the PS2 version, but you can look into getting that if you really want to skip the narrative. It makes sense to skip the feeding sequences (which might be skippable on the PS2 anyway), not so much anything else outside of a follow up playthrough or checkpoints messing up.

  • British_Otaku

    Very nice, but can they get to releasing Okami on the 3DS or Vita sometime soon. >_>

    • Mr_SP

      I don’t think that’s really possible. It’s just too hard. They’d have to start from the ground up, and give us a sequel or something.

      Not that I’m not okay with that.

      • British_Otaku

        Really? The 3DS and Vita have received open world titles before and can run a PS2 game like Okami quite well with good optimisation of course.

        It would take less work to port Okami than write up, compose and line up all of the elements for a decent Okami sequel.

  • Kaetsu

    I’d like to see this on the Wii U eshop since Nintendo is really close to Platinum now.

    • British_Otaku

      Platinum have no stake or power over Okami even if they have the director of the original game and many other staff members, it is in Capcom’s hands as with everything else made by Capcom in house.

      Now, Bayonetta? That is something we should see on the e-Shop and perhaps other things that Platinum developed themselves like Vanquish or Anarchy Reigns.

  • CycloneFox

    This is sone of the best games ever created. Whoever doesn’t own it yet, buy it now!

  • Yvonne Tsang

    I really, really want this. Bought Okami for PS2 and loved it, but I don’t have a PS3. REALLY hope this comes for PS4, because I’ll definitely be getting that.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Definitely picking this up now.

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, so many versions of this game out there. PS2, Wii, PS3 HD… kinda hard to know which one to pick. Wasn’t there this whole controversy where the rereleased versions didn’t have the original developers mentioned in the credits?

    • British_Otaku

      You are correct about the rereleases not having credits to a degree, the Japanese versions of the rereleases have credits.

      Also, there are other differences like control schemes between regions on the Wii (I managed with the European/American Wii controls even if I will NEVER use dodging or buy it) and whether you get a retail disc or not for the PS3. Then there is skipping cutscenes which can only be done on the rereleases and the less visually distinct look of the rereleases.

      I recommend any of them over all I guess… If you were a Japanese reader, you wouldn’t miss out on a thing though.

      • Göran Isacson

        Man, so there is really no one “definitive” version then… bit of a bummer. I guess that I’ll check if my PS3 has space for the HD version, if not I will probably get the Wii version. Skippable cutscenes are a BIG thing for me, mostly for when I die and have to rewatch something again…


    Worth every penny. One of my favorite games. Ever.
