  • Whether Okami for Wii will feature additional or expanded content is undecided at this point. Svensson says that Ready at Dawn has been working on the port with little assistance from the original development team, and as such, transferring the original content within a reasonable timeframe takes precedence. However, should Ready at Dawn complete its primary work ahead of the game's expected release in the first half of 2008, it's entirely possible that we'll see a more robust version of Amaterasu's adventure on the Wii.

    It pains us to bring news of innocent mistakes that blow up huge, but this one is a real head-scratcher: It looks like copies of Okami for the Wii...

  • The multiple award-winning Okami returns for a glorious encore on the Wii! Amaterasu, the wolf-embodied sun god must breathe color and life into a world made dismal by the tyrannical and destructive monster Orochi. Amaterasu travels through various regions of the world to regain "Celestial Brush" powers, all the while revitalizing all life. Featuring a re-imagined control scheme built around the intuitive Wii Remote, Okami for the Wii offers players an unparalleled level of control and an opportunity to rediscover a critically-acclaimed and beautifully crafted adventure.

    Using the Wii Remote, players can directly manipulate the in-game "Celestial Brush." Players utilize the brush to literally draw upon the game world, thereby altering its physical properties. Whether it's creating pathways, chopping down trees or turning night into day, Okami changes the world into a virtual canvas.

    Featuring a visually stunning art style, Okami comes alive through beautiful scenic 3D levels that have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolor-like calligraphy art. Throughout the vibrant and distinctive surroundings, interact with a dynamic cast of characters and build their faith to uncover clues and hints. The blend of stylized graphics and unique gameplay results in a rich and dynamic experience never seen before.

    If you've picked up a copy of Okami for the Wii, go grab the box and look closely at the cover. I'll give you a hint, look just to the right of his mouth. What you will see is the watermark of IGN. How sad is it to see someone else's watermark on your product?

  • Here’s something interesting to note, Capcom Japan has not announced Okami for the Wii. They probably will release the revised version outside of North America, but we’re getting it first.

Okami Wii for $20 from J&R at Amazon.

Only Okami game that was targeted to a Nintendo platform was Okamiden for DS. A new Okami for Wii U would become my most anticipated game instantly though. I thought Okami was even better than Twilight Princess (dare I say that!?). Hell I think I enjoyed it even more than Skyward Sword!
