Okami HD Receives First Gorgeous 4K Screenshots, Trailer; Western Release Date Confirmed
Earlier today, it’s been confirmed that Okami will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Japan this December, complete with 4K support. Now, Capcom confirmed that this highly anticipated remake will be making its way West as well.
Okami HD will launch in North America and Europe a few days before it hits Japan, on December 12th. The game will be available for the price of $19.99 in North America, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions also getting a retail release.
Capcom also shared some gorgeous 4K screenshots, which can be checked out below.
Not counting the graphical enhancements, Okami HD looks like won’t be too different from the original release, with players controlling the Japanese Sun Goddess Amaterasu as she fights Orochi and restores the world.
In Okami HD players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. Players must use Amaterasu’s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and color. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi’s curse.
Okami HD launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 12th.
