Okami HD Release Date Revealed for PC, PS4, Xbox One


Okami HD lands on Xbox One, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and PC on December 12th for $19.99. It'll be available on PS4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally, as well as getting a digital only PC release. However, it's not clear if the new Okami HD will also support the peripherals.

The mini-games were excluded from the Wii and HD PS3 releases of the game in 2008 and 2012, respectively.

Capcom made the announcement via the Japanese magazine Famitsu.

In a culmination of what has to be one of the worst kept secrets in gaming, at least for this year, Capcom have finally announced that the long-awaited Okami HD will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on December 12th.

The game will be released physically and digitally, with the latter priced at £15.99 / $19.99 United States dollars (no Australian pricing was available at time of writing).

The game is retaining the original interactive loading game screens that will allow players to earn bonus demon fangs which can be traded for in-game items. Originally developed by Hideki Kamiya's Clover Studio and released on PlayStation 2 in 2006, it was highly praised for its attractive Japanese-style music and visuals. However, it has seen a graphical upheaval, as "its renowned Sumi-e ink art style is now even more breath-taking as the graphics have been updated to take advantage of modern high resolutions". The gameplay is a mix of action, puzzle and platforming, with players being able to transform the world of the game by pausing and drawing figures with the analog stick or the motion controls of the later versions.
