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 Coming Exclusively to PS3 With PlayStation Move Support This Fall

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.

  • Tyfighter80

    My body…My body is ready.

  • darthelghast

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • White-Sharingan

    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.

  • Bloody_Marcel

    Digital or physical release? :)

  • Sharingan_itachi

    Platinum? Day 1.

  • 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!

  • very nice indeed I will be definitely buying this

  • This.

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

    Purchase = justified.

  • Heartlessomen

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

  • How much will it cost?

  • gerneric123

    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!

  • seriously where is the vita version?

  • This needs to be on PS Vita. Stat!

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

  • Carrot_atack

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

  • 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. :)

  • This news made my day! Can’t wait!

  • HOLY CRAP!!!!!!

    Thank you!

  • lobotomies4free

    Thank you Sony

  • 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!

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

  • Thank you!!!

  • FearlessSasuke

    YES!!!!!!!

    I am so glad I got the move now.

    Now I wait.

  • cosmis_chaos

    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.

  • pyrophysics

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

  • PUT IT ON VITA.

    That is all.

  • Happy news indeed.

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

  • 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…

    >:[

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

    Thank you so much! Can’t wait!

  • MrBanballow

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

  • 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.

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

  • Mulder_kalel

    VITA PLEASE!!

  • 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.

  • TerraAshura

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

  • superfriar19

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

  • 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

    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

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

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

  • 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????

    -Jon

  • TerraAshura

    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.

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

  • all i can say is…THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

  • xxnike629xx

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

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