Update: According to a magazine leak, Okami HD is coming to Japan December 21 with HD and 4K support. The European and American release might not differ much, so expect an announcement this week or probably today.
Original Story: Last month, Kotaku UK reported that HD remastered version of Capcom’s action-adventure game, Okami HD, will be releasing on December 12, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Yesterday, Korean ratings board has rated Okami HD for PS4, Xbox and PC, there’s no sign of release date found in the ratings though.
Okami HD was first released on PS2 in 2006 and tells the story of how the land was saved from evil by the Amaterasu, the Shinto sun goddess, who transforms to a white wolf.
Here’s the game’s description:
Once upon a time there was a small village called Kamiki Village, where everyone from the villagers to the animals, lived in peace and happiness. But then one day, the legendary monster Orochi, came back to life and put an evil curse on the entire area. Everything that had a bit of life, disappeared from the face of the earth, and in their place was left a dreadful, barren wasteland.
Orochi’s horrid curse spread all across the land, turning it into a veritable hell on earth, infested with countless monsters roaming the earth. But there was one hope. The majestic, wolf-embodied sun god Amaterasu.
One-hundred years ago, Amaterasu used the godly power of the Celestial Brush, to face Orochi. But their battle consumed them both, causing them to disappear from the world, with Amaterasu losing the thirteen Celestial Brush powers in the process.
Now in the present, Amaterasu stumbles upon a mysterious fairy sprite named Issun, and together they set out on an adventure, as Amaterasu aims to regain the 13 powers of the Celestial brush and defeat Orochi once and for all.
Okami was also ported to Wii in 2008 and for PS3, as a remaster, in 2012.
If the rumours are true, this will be the first time Okami is coming to PC, and of course, PS4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, there’s no news about a possible Switch port or whether it’ll get one or not. But if we hear back anything, we’ll update you.
