Gorgeous remaster Okami HD will arrive on the eShop for Switch this summer

Okami HD will arrive on the eShop for Nintendo Switch this summer.

The updated version of the gorgeous 2006 release, Okami HD is already available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

As with the original, players will draw brushstrokes on screen with the Celestial Brush to battle opponents or solve puzzles.

Unique to Nintendo Switch, Okami HD will offer new functionality for the Celestial Brush by using the system’s touchscreen and motion-control. This will provide players with "new ways to solve puzzles and defeat foes."

Players will accomplish this by creating brushstrokes directly on the touchscreen while in Handheld mode.

When Switch is docked or in Tabletop mode, players will paint with the Joy-Con controller’s motion controls by moving it in the desired pattern.

A release date for Okami HD on Switch other than summer wan't provided during the Nintendo Direct presentation this evening.
