One of the PS2’s greatest games is getting a PS3 makeover.
In the latest issue of Famitsu, Capcom confirmed that it will release a high-definition port of Okami for the PS3 in Japan later this year – with a US digital release along the way, according to a recent Capcom press release.
In Japan, the port is called Okami: Zekkie-ban (Okami: Magnificent Version) and will include PlayStation Move support along with HD graphics. In addition, first-print copies of the game in Japan will include a digital copy of the Okami artbook Okami: Youjuu Giga E-maki (Okami: Wicked Caricature). This physical release hits Japan on November 1 for ¥3990 (about $50 US).
The United States version will be titled Okami HD and will retail on the PlayStation Network for $19.99.
A PAL release date has not been announced at this time. Expect news to follow in the coming weeks.
