The only two things wrong with this Okami HD footage are that it only goes for five minutes and not, say, the rest of my life, and that no matter how hard I press the buttons on my Dual Shock I can’t yet play it. Capcom’s re-release is looking mighty fine after its visual brush-up; hit the break to see it in full glory. Okami HD arrives on the Japanese PlayStation Network in early November, with a release in other territories expected before the end of the year.

Capcom producer Motohide Eshiro has said the launches of PS3 and Wii were to blame for Okami’s relative failure at retail.

Platinum’s Okami and MadWorld should have been better received, Qs Tetsuya Mizuguchi has told 1UP.
“It’s actually a coincidence that I mention two games by Clover/Platinum, but it’s a shame that unique games like this aren’t embraced by the public more,” said the Japanese dev stalwart.
Madworld’s wince-inducing sales were closely watched as the game was seen as something of a “core” test-bed for Wii, while Okami was hugely-loved, but not popular enough to spawn a Wii Sequel; a DS follow-on has since been announced.
There’s an interview through there.

Capcom has confirmed that Okamiden is indeed a sequel to Okami set to land on DS in Japan next year.
To be shown for the first time at TGS this month Okamiden: Chiisaki Taiyo – roughly translated as Okami Legend: The Small Sun – the game is being handled by internal Capcom staff, producer Motohide Eshiro and director Kuniomi Matsushita.
“Around December last year, Matsushita came up to me and talked about making a new Okami that could be enjoyed in portable format,” Eshiro told Famitsu. “He’s very passionate about the game, and he already had a test version created by that time that was extremely high quality, fully capturing Okami’s unique visuals. Seeing that, I thought we were safe to make it an official project.”
“As you know, Okami’s visuals and game system are extmely unique,” added Matsushita. “The original idea was to take what makes this game special and expose it to more people. That was why we chose the Nintendo DS — being on a portable system will allow people to easily pick up and play it, and you can also use the touch pen as a brush.”
Okamiden picks up a few months after the previous game left off after Amaterasu restored things to normal went about her merry way.

A trademark filed for Okamiden in Japan has Siliconera suggesting that it could be Okami 2.
Since Clover Studios has gone bye-bye, Capcom now owns the rights to the series.
Ready at Dawn released the Wii version of the game last year which is finally expected to land in Japan on October 15.
We’ve sent a mail Capcom’s way to see if we can get more on this.
Hopefully someone will get back with us soon.

Okami for Wii and PS2 is now $20 at Capcom Store, according to this Unity post.
That’s a bit stupid. Buy it. If you’re American.

According to this Kotaku piece, the original Okami team’s credits have been cut from the Wii version. Capcom’s said this is for legal reasons, apparently, as the company’s not allowed to use the Clover logo any more, although it hasn’t been explained why names couldn’t have been added without the logo.
Original Clover director Hideki Kamiya isn’t amazingly pleased about it, rather obviously.
“I really don’t know what under pretext the credits were cut,” he said. What do you all think? I feel dejected, and not only because my own name has been erased from my creation. Of course we have pride in our work and we want to scream ‘We made this!’ from the top of our lungs. But more than that, the fact that they cut the entire staff is utterly deplorable.”

Okami’s coming out on June 13 in Europe, according to Eurogamer. Not a lot to add to that, really. Other than, “Make sure you buy it.”
