Okami HD announced exclusively for PS3

first_imgPS2 cult classic Okami is back, but this time it’s making an appearance on the PS3 in glorious 1080p, with 51 trophies (including a platinum) and the now prerequisite Move compatibility.For those of you who don’t remember the critically acclaimed game, Okami sees players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a horrible monster turns the world into a wasteland, she must use her magical abilities to transform it back into a land of life and color and, of course, defeat the demon responsible.Such a colorful game already looked beautiful on Sony’s last-gen console, so the Japanese calligraphy art style will look fantastic in HD. The trailer above shows the huge difference between the old PS2 version and new, digitally remastered one.Players can also use their PlayStation Move to paint with the Celestial Brush, which is used to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Move controller though, you can play Okami just fine with your standard PS3 controller.If any of you lucky readers happen to be in Tokyo next week, Okami HD will be playable at the Capcom Summer Jam event held between June 30th and July 1st. The rest of us will just have to wait to play Capcom’s masterpiece which will be released on PSN this fall for the bargain price of $19.99. If you’re after a disc version of the game, it seems that Capcom is only making it available in Japan, so make some space on your hard drive.via PlayStation Bloglast_img read more
