Capcom announced today that Okami HD is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 12, 2017. Developed by Clover Studio and published by Capcom, Okami was originally released for the PlayStation 2 console in 2006, with other home entertainment devices getting ports later, but this is the first time that it hits our platform of choice.
Players who wish to experience this classic action/adventure title in 4k will be able to do so in supported hardware, and Capcom has revealed that the game will cost US$ 19.99 on all three platforms.
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.
Players will be able to choose between playing in a modern widescreen format or the original 2007 release’s 4:3 ratio. 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.
