Okami HD Revealed, To Support 1080p HD, PlayStation Move
Now this is a game that should really benefit from glorious high-definition.
You know you're going to want it. Thanks to Famitsu and several Japanese sources, we've learned that the artistically accomplished and critically acclaimed PS2 title, Okami, is being remade in high-def for the PS3.
The new version will be called "Okami Zekkie-ban," which translates to "Okami: Magnificent Edition," and it will boast 1080p HD, PlayStation Move support, and although it hasn't been confirmed, we're going to go out on a limb and say Trophies will be included as well. The Move is a nice touch because that can be used as a paintbrush in the game. It seems Okami HD will be ready to go on November 1 in the Land of the Rising Sun, and those who pick up a first-run copy will get a voucher code to download the digital version of "Okami: A Caricature of Beasts," a Japanese book adaptation of the game's plot.
As for North America and Europe, gamers in those territories can expect a digital version of Okami HD, which should retail for $19.99. Along with Shadow of the Colossus, we're talking about one of the prettiest games of the PS2 generation, so...yeah, this is sweet.
