Okami HD Coming Exclusively to PS3 With PlayStation Move Support This Fall

Okami HD for PS3

Grab your Celestial Brush! I’m pleased to confirm that this fall, gamers will be able to return to the land of Nippon in Okami HD, exclusively on the PS3 with PlayStation Move support. Initially released to critical acclaim on the PS2, Okami HD has the player take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster, Orochi, turns the world into a ruined, colorless wasteland, Amaterasu must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory and defeat the demon in charge of the destruction.


Okami HD brings Amaterasu’s epic tale to the PS3 with fully integrated HD graphics and widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. I did not think it was possible to make the game look even better, but when I saw it for myself, I was a believer. The trademark sumi-e ink art style lends itself perfectly to HD, allowing players to experience more of the awe-inspiring world displayed in more detail than ever before. Check out the trailer above to see what I’m talking about!

To create an even more immersive experience, you can take your PlayStation Move motion controller and use it as your own Celestial Brush and naturally make brush strokes to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. That said, if you’re just in the mood to relive Okami in HD with the same controls as you had on your PS2, you can also play with your traditional PS3 controllers.

To top things off, we know everyone loves Trophies, so Okami HD will support PS3 Trophies, (including a Platinum) giving you new challenges to face and feats to complete. Okami HD will be available for download exclusively on PS3 in North America and Europe this fall.

Wow about time! although i have one question by any chance can we expect okamiden on the ps vita Mr. corbett?

also one more question even though it’s not about okami (but guessing your the marketing manager for capcom…no clue what you do…) can we expect Resident evil Revelations on vita too?

@Tristan Corbett: Thanks for the response acknowledging the PS Vita requests.

Tried to comment 3 hours ago. Was something wrong with blog site?

Anyway, Elvick beat me to it, but read Tristan’s reply to post 107 re: Vita consideration

+ lisatsunami on June 20th, 2012 at 7:56 pm said:

Based on Tristan’s reply, I think the “suits” did not anticipate this gleeful, overwhelming response to news of Okami. I bet they’re just as excited as us now, as they read the vehemence of the comments here, especially about Vita.

So patience, young padawans. I believe I will be playing Okami on my white Liberation bundle Vita sometime later this year or early next.

Tristan, thanks for commenting about the Vita situation. I would gladly buy a Vita version of the game. :)

Yeah just going to say:

OKAMI HD FOR THE PS VITA!!!!!

Sony it’s time to start making good on your Vita promises like Crossplay. If you do, I may be willing to (temporarily) forget about your Remote Play promise. Cough cough…still waiting.

+ ccanfield1 on June 20th, 2012 at 10:44 pm said:

Great game. Glad it is coming to PS3. Love the HD upgrade. Move controls are a great addition for this remake. I first played this game on Wii. Hope the Move controls are tight and precise. I will definitely download this one.

THIS is the type of news that reaffirms to me that somewhere up that corporate ladder, there is still an appreciation for art.

That makes me very happy.

I’m glad that we’ll get a chance to experience this game again, and in a more vibrant, and more immersive way.

Hopefully, despite being relatively expensive for a PSN release, it will find an audience this time. It struggled to find a massive audience the first time it was released, despite having such a devoted following. Perhaps people will be more willing to look away from Generic Shooter 8 long enough to give this game a try this time.

I like this. I would prefer Okami-Den on vita and it was the great sequel and handheld game specifically.


224

+ Theonik on June 21st, 2012 at 1:28 am said:

If you guys can make a Vita version happen expect me to double dip on this release.


225

+ Onvertic on June 21st, 2012 at 3:46 am said:

+1 on a Vita release, also Okamiden version too!


226

+ Tarqosis on June 21st, 2012 at 8:08 am said:

Day one buy. x2 if a Vita copy is released. Love this game so much, and can’t wait to own this again.


227

+ MarinoBrea on June 21st, 2012 at 8:49 am said:

To this day I still don’t understand why the HD remasters for PS3 (each title separately) are not on PS VITA. I thought this as well as the huge amount of PSN games would be no-brainers to port for Vita.


228

+ ButterflyCluster on June 21st, 2012 at 10:40 am said:

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time!! Finally!!!! :D

+ Inuboykendo1000 on June 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

This announcement makes me happy. I’ve always wanted to try Okami, but I never wanted to shell out 30 bucks online to Gamestop or Amazon for a new copy of Okami on Wii. I’ll be getting this. :D


230

+ evandura on June 21st, 2012 at 1:43 pm said:

I was JUST thinking about how amazing it would be if Okami was put on the PS3. This is a dream come TRUE! I am seriously thinking of getting Move for this game…


231

+ cheshire137 on June 21st, 2012 at 2:22 pm said:

Are you EFFING kidding me?? This is fantastic! Loooooove this game so much. I only ever had the Wii version, but I cannot wait to get this in HD for my PS3. This is the most excited I’ve been about a game since Dragon Age 2!


232

+ KainDrake on June 21st, 2012 at 2:33 pm said:

Oh my god. Okami was beautiful enough on the PS2, but with an HD release, it would be an orgasm for my eyes.


233

+ snakeeyes211 on June 21st, 2012 at 2:35 pm said:

Put in some 3-D support please


234

+ MetBlade49 on June 21st, 2012 at 2:48 pm said:

Wow I asked for this earlier in June after E3 Omg thank you thats amazing I loved this game for the ps2 but can you also add more avatars for Okami… wait nah I’m too happy for this.


235

+ NeoMahi on June 21st, 2012 at 2:49 pm said:

Ah! I see. So, is Okami HD Exclusive to the PlayStation 3? Or is the PlayStation Move functionality the exclusive part. When you go to a store, you see “Only On PlayStation” on the same game as the Xbox 360 has, difference is that the PS3 version uses PlayStation Move… That’s it… So, what we’re going to see this on the Wii U later down the road and so this is just a timed exclusive. So, the question is: Am I going to eventually be able to play this game on another platform? Or this game will only see the light of day on the PS3 PERIOD.

The other thing. DANGIT CAPCOM! My HDD is running out of space and I’ve got a 500GB HDD. You sure I can’t get a Blu-ray Disc with this game on it? The Box Art would look amazing on my shelf as its for one game, not like the ones that look bad because there’s two different things of boxart commanding your attention on one. The sleeve could be on actual water-color paper. What do you say Capcom? I think all our HDD’s are starting to get pretty full.


236

+ NeoMahi on June 21st, 2012 at 2:50 pm said:

… Especially with PlayStation Plus free stuff. Sony (PS3) > Microsoft (360).

+ whatisdelicious on June 21st, 2012 at 3:33 pm said:

While this is awesome, a better HD Move-ified release from Capcom would be Killer7.


238

+ midgettman_13 on June 21st, 2012 at 10:53 pm said:

This is awesome! I am so excited! Ever since I got the game for my Wii it has been my favorite game ever, then I got my PS3 and have been wanting to play Okami on it. I even tried to find a way to email Capcom so they could platform it for PS3. Then I saw this and now I am overwhelmed with joy! I can’t wait to get it! Thank you, just thank you.

I’m excited to hear that Okami is getting an HD update. I hope that capcom will consider doing the same with the Onimusha series…..

I just wanted to add my voice to the “ps vita” chant here. This would be perfection on vita.

I also hate to comment on good news with “please do this”, so let me also say that this is fantastic news- well done to all parties involved. Okami is an overlooked gem and everyone should experience it. I’ll be buying a copy on PSN and hopefully on vita as well.


246

+ JeffsonP_US on July 4th, 2012 at 6:45 am said:

I’m back, just to beg a little more.
Please, bring it to PS Vita. I’m a great fan of this game. Just watching this trailer, just remembering of the game, makes me happy. Playing this on my PS Vita, certainly will be an awesome experience. Please. PLEASE! I’ll buy it twice if necessary, but I need to have it in my pocket. I want to dive in glorious world of Nippon at any time, anywhere!

+ breezystatus on July 7th, 2012 at 6:39 am said:

this has been my dream ever since the move came out. when i saw it on my news feed on Facebook almost died. Lol there was a group on Facebook called “We Want Okami HD for PS3″ (PS Move Enabled)” and they’ve been waiting for this announcement for a while. although i am souped i just would have preferred a well promoted physical copy. it being available for purchase is great and will buy day 1 but i really would have loved a physical release. and a vita version would have been really cool too. should have been showcased at E3 cuz i would have.. idk what i would have done, but, regardless thank u guys sooo much!
