Game crossovers are nothing new, but Capcom’s way of getting Okami’s Amaterasu into Dota 2 is a bit different.
With Okami HD making its way to PC, PS4, and Xbox One from next week, Capcom has found an interesting way to do some cross-promotion. Ammy might be popping up as a courier in Dota 2, but not necessarily because a deal has been reached.
Amaterasu is now up on the Dota 2 Steam Workshop for you to vote on. The model was submitted by ‘CAPCOM_OKAMI_HD’, and the video below, showing the model off, was posted onto one of Capcom’s official channels.
This means that Capcom has simply submitted Amaterasu as a mod, and is leaving it to the Dota 2 community to vote on whether or not everyone’s favourite wolf should make it into the game or not.
This is a fairly unusual route for Capcom to take, but hey – whatever works. The model is great, and people really love Okami, so there’s a strong possibility that this one will get through. Still, you should go and vote if you really want to see it happen.
Meanwhile, you can preorder Okami HD on consoles right now ahead of the game’s December 12 release.
Okami HD will be available on PC and PS4 from December 13, and then on Xbox One from December 21.
