Ōkami coming to PSN this autumn with Move support [updated]

Submitted by on Wednesday, 20 June 2012One Comment

It’s not the sequel we crave, but Capcom is doing the next best thing by giving us a glorious HD remaster of Ōkami. It will be launching on the PS Store in autumn for £15.99/$19.99.

It’s the same game that won critical acclaim on the PS2, but it will now feature new smooth HD graphics, a 16:9 aspect ratio, trophies and PS Move support. The remaster is likely closer to the Wii version from 2008, rather than the original that arrived on the PS2 two years earlier. Ōkami on the Wii introduced motion control to the series, allowing you to use the Wii Remote to control Amaterasu’s Celestial Brush. Move will take over this role, but players will also be able to use their DualShock.

Ōkami was a critical success but its sales numbers were poor, so poor that Clover Studios closed after release. It has however managed to maintain a strong cult following. Fans love its Zelda-inspired gameplay, memorable score and beautiful sumi-e ink art style.

Missed it first time round? Here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about.
