The highly acclaimed and award-winning video game Okami HD will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Check out an announcement trailer and some screenshots below.
The action-adventure game written by Hideki Kamiya was developed by Clover Studio and published by Capcom. The original game was released for PlayStation 2 in 2006. The game was released in HD for PlayStation 3 in 2012, but only in Japan. To this day the video game is still considered among many as one of the greatest ever made.
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 color. 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.
The game will allow players to choose between playing in a modern widescreen format or the original 2006 release’s 4:3 ratio. The interactive loading game screens from the original game are also included, allowing players to earn bonus demon fangs which can be traded for in-game items.
Okami HD will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC on December 12th, 2017.
