Okami HD Announced for December 12


  • Okami HD Announced for December 12

    Okami HD was confirmed this week for a December 12 release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A rumor about an HD version of the game has been circulating around for a little while now, so it's finally good to have some confirmation on this.
    The original game, released to critical and consumer acclaim in 2006, was hailed as one of the most beautiful games ever created, and this latest release with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style is now even more breath-taking as the graphics have been updated to take advantage of modern high resolutions. Okami HD will be compatible with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro whilst featuring stunning 4K graphics on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and supported PC hardware.

    In Okami HD 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. Players must use Amaterasu’s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and colour. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi’s curse.

    You will be able to play in either a widescreen format or the original 4:3 aspect ratio. The interactive loading screens from the original release are also included here, allowing you to earn bonus demon fangs.

    Okami HD will retail for $19.99 (USD) when it releases on December 12.

      Yay, i've still never played this game but always had the intention of doing so, i'm like a lot of people who missed it due to its late original release, i don't have a Wii so couldn't play that port and didn't own a PS3 when the first HD version was released.
      This game shall allude me no longer.
