Capcom revealed in today’s Nintendo Direct presentation that Hideki Kamiya’s action adventure game Okami HD will be headed to Nintendo eShop this summer.
In the Nintendo Switch version of Okami HD you’ll get to use the touch screen controls in handheld mode or Joy-Con motion controllers for TV Mode and Tabletop mode.
You can catch the trailer from the Nintendo Direct presentation in the 7:29 mark of the video below:
Okami HD, one of the most visually breathtaking action video games ever made, is coming to Nintendo Switch with high definition graphics updated for modern HD televisions. Originally released in 2006, Okami brought the Japanese Sumi-e ink style art to video games, marrying art with action and an epic tale, making it one of the most unique and beautiful video games ever. Okami HD will be available as a digital download for Nintendo Switch this summer.
In the game, players draw brushstrokes on screen with the Celestial Brush to battle opponents or solve puzzles. Unique to Nintendo Switch, Okami HD will offer new functionality for the Celestial Brush, taking advantage of the Nintendo Switch system’s touchscreen and motion-control support to create intuitive new ways to solve puzzles and defeat foes. These artistic touches include:
Touchscreen Painting – Create brushstrokes directly on the touchscreen in Handheld mode
Motion-Control Painting – Paint with the Joy-Con™ controller’s motion controls in TV or Tabletop mode by moving it in the desired pattern, just like a paintbrush
Art meets action and puzzle solving in Okami HD, where players must use a combination of magic abilities, clever attacks, an arsenal of items and Celestial Brush techniques to restore life and color to the land of Nippon. In the game, players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. A cast of colorful allies appear to help Amaterasu defeat foes and rid the land of Orochi’s curse.
Okami HD releases this summer for Nintendo Switch via eShop.
