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.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)




  • Anyone who hasn’t played this game yet absolutely MUST get this!! This is my second-favourite game; the only game above it is Xenoblade. Okami is indescribably gorgeous. Go Google some images, and go listen to the tracks “Reset – Thank You Version”, “Shinshu Field”, “Ryoshima Coast” and “Kamiki Village’s Sorrowful Custom” to name a few.

  • I know its an “HD” version of the game but I honestly think they would of sold alot more copies if they would of gone with a $15 price tag instead of $20. SEGA had the right idea when the priced Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown at $15 as it benefited them and sales sky rocketed because of it Capcom should learn from them…

  • ]xD…i <3 okami!!!…
