Rumors have swirled for a few days about Okami HD getting a re-release on modern-day devices, and Capcom confirmed it today. The original Okami hit the PlayStation 2 and Wii, while its HD enhanced edition was a PS3 exclusive. Now, the franchise will be coming to the PS4 and making its Xbox One and PC debut on December 12. The HD version offered up a higher level of graphical detail, and for this watercolor painting-inspired adventure, it really made things pop even more. Newcomers who love 3D Legend of Zelda-style games will enjoy Amaterasu’s adventure as a wolf goddess.
The game will now go from supporting 1080p at a peak to 4K via PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro. The game will be playable either in a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio, and the original’s loading screen mini-game will be available as well. The game will be available in both physical and digital formats on December 12 for $19.99 – which should make impulse buying at retail stores a great way to give this a long shelf life. This coming to PC and Xbox One for the first time is exciting, and opens the door for the franchise to have new life on two new console families while also keeping it alive and well on the PlayStation consoles too.
