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

Tristan Corbett's Avatar Posted by Marketing Manager, Capcom

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.

This will be amazing. Never had the chance of playing Okami on PS2 and I never bought the Wii version so this is perfect for me. Can’t wait to use it with my move.

Finally! Ever since PS Move was first unveiled I have been asking and asking for this. Literally one my my all time best/ favourites games is getting the treatment it deserves. I’m so freaking excited.

Just thank you. Thank you!

This is the game I hoped would get remade when I bought my Move controllers.

Purchase = justified.

‘available for download exclusively on PS3’??? Does that mean this is only getting a digital release??????

Asraik said:

June 19th, 6:14 pm

How much will it cost?

I know you guys at Capcom hate Vita, but man Okami would be perfect for it with the touch screen, and the OLED.

Thank you Sony! Just what the PS3 needed!

LionFranco said:

June 19th, 6:17 pm

ixnine said:

June 19th, 6:19 pm

This needs to be on PS Vita. Stat!

h_sanchez said:

June 19th, 6:19 pm

FINALLY SONY. ico, sotc, okami, some remakes that make a difference to have a ps3.

Carrot_atack said:

June 19th, 6:19 pm

Have the original PS2 game, but for the right price I’m definitely getting this.

Milagres_ said:

June 19th, 6:20 pm

I’d really like to know exactly how the PS move will work (and feel) on this game.
Maybe in some future video.
I’m looking foward to buy a PS move and this game may just be the reason for it.
Perfect game for a HD transiction!
Congrats for the initiative

    Glad you’re excited! We’ll definitely be doing some streams to show off how the Move features work so stay tuned for more info on that. :)

Thank you Sony

LionFranco said:

Seriously Capcom, us Vita owners want more than just your fighting games, we want Monster Hunter, we want Okami, we want lots of your IP’s. Hell, i dont care if it takes a year for some of these to be released, just announce them already, throw Vita owners a bone!

Slaysme said:

June 19th, 6:25 pm

Vita support. Don’t mess it up. Seriously. Sure it has enough ports, but COME ON With this one.

I am so glad I got the move now.

Now I wait.

June 19th, 6:27 pm

Okami WITH Move support? *fall to knees* Thank you. Okami will be so much more beautiful in HD. Thank you. Now all you have to do is make a sequel on the PS3 or VITA and I will never say bad thing about you again Capcom. Never ever.

June 19th, 6:28 pm

I’ll buy it when it comes out AND I’ll get another copy if it releases on Vita. Please do it. Please.

That is all.

J_KEEL said:

June 19th, 6:30 pm

Happy news indeed.

I hope the HD remake would maintain the grainy effect of the original version and Clover’s ending credits.

Enigma777 said:

June 19th, 6:33 pm

You know what. I hate all you commenters!

Here I am, excited and incredibly happy about this news and you all go and complain it’s not on the Vita. And then I start thinking about what a Vita version might be like and I start to like it. I like it a lot. And now I am no longer as happy as I was 30 seconds ago because there’s no Vita version…


Binarynova said:

June 19th, 6:34 pm

OMG! Playable with just a regular PS3 controller = Day One Sale.

Thank you so much! Can’t wait!

MrBanballow said:

June 19th, 6:35 pm

Would it be to much to ask for Remote Play support between PS3 and Vita?

iBukana said:

June 19th, 6:36 pm

Good news, but why isn’t there a Vita version!? With touch implements and OLED screen quality, it will be perfect.
I guess SEGA is treating their HD games better, delivering it to appropriate consoles like the Vita version of Jet Set Radio HD.
CAPCOM, just do it.

Angelcurio said:

June 19th, 6:36 pm

Awesome!, let´s hope you put some nice offer for us PS + users.

June 19th, 6:36 pm

This is amazing NEWS! I never played this on the PS2 so I will get it for sure on the PS3 (Heard a lot of great stuff about this game). HD+Trophies+PS3 = WIN! Is it just on the PSN Store or will we see this in retail stores as a disc?

    Thanks and glad you’re excited! This will just be a PSN release, so digital only.

Just had a hallelujah moment. I’m at a complete loss for words. All I can say is: FURK YEAH!

Sony just sold another Playstation Move. Day one for me.

Mattsta001 said:

June 19th, 6:37 pm

Wow, this is fantastic news. I never played the original. Kudos to Sony and Capcom for bringing this to PSN and with Move support too.

Couldn’t care less about a Vita version!

Pikmologist said:

June 19th, 6:38 pm

This is great! Okami is one of the best things Capcom has ever done (even though they never even developed it originally) I loved Okamiden on the DS though, I would love a actual new Okami game down the road, so hopefully sales of this will make them decide to make a new game.

R_a_z_i_e_l said:

Why no Ps Vita version ? Would look amazing on Vita screen and brushstrokes would be a breeze.

JoseOmatic said:

Tomba on PSN now this!!! Thank you!!!!

JonAuc77 said:

June 19th, 6:42 pm

Bought the PS2 version for $49…. The Wii version for $49…. now a PS3 version for $39-59???

I’ll happily pay it!!!! This game IS that good! Awesome it is in HD now, can’t wait!

Anyone heard if part 2 is in the works????


TerraAshura said:

June 19th, 6:45 pm


Well we did see Okamiden get released. I still need to pick up that one, though, but I heard it was still great. Not sure on a full console Okami sequel.

AJBS0NIC said:

June 19th, 6:45 pm

First the (free) Wipeout 2048 DLC and now this. Sony you are on a roll, keep it up!

triansyah said:

June 19th, 6:46 pm

all i can say is…THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

xxnike629xx said:

June 19th, 6:47 pm

Hey Sony! How about also get us Okamiden in HD on the PS3 as well?

vgsbass said:

June 19th, 6:47 pm

I’ve never commented here before but, thanks Sony! Just… thanks!
