News: Okami HD Out This Week On PSN

Capcom today announced that critically acclaimed Ōkami has been reincarnated as a digital download in North America today and in Europe starting tomorrow on PlayStation Network for $19.99/ €19.99 / £15.99. The game originally praised for its gorgeous Sumi-e style graphics has had its spirit boosted with heavenly HD graphics, PlayStation Move support and PlayStation 3 system trophies

With Ōkami HD, players can take advantage of the PlayStation Move motion controller and naturally make brush strokes with the Celestial Brush to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. Ōkami HD will also support the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for those who wish to re-live the original experience.

Initially released to critical acclaim on the PlayStation 2 system, players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster turns the world into a ruined wasteland, she must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory full of life and color.

Time to dig out my Move controller and charge the bad boy up. I for one am one of those people who hasn’t played this game ever. Looks stunning and right up my street.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
