What’s sure to make many fans happy, Capcom has announced that Ōkami will be released in the U.S. and Europe on PSN.
“Already one of the most beautiful games ever created, the addition of HD graphics will make this new version of Ōkami even more stunning,” said Capcom in a press release. “Ōkami HD will also feature PlayStation Move integration as well as a full suite of PlayStation 3 system trophies,” it added.
The game will set you back $19.99/€19.99.
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.
Ōkami HD brings Amaterasu’s epic tale to the PS3 with fully integrated HD graphics and 16:9 aspect ratio. The trademark sumi-e ink art style lends itself perfectly to HD allowing players to experience more of the awe-inspiring world displayed in greater detail than ever before.
To create an even more immersive experience, players can take advantage of the PlayStation Move motion controller and naturally make brush strokes with the essential 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.
