View Full Version : Capcom Confirms Okami for Nintendo Wii

10-18-2007, 03:04 PM



At their London Press Event going on right now, Capcom has announced that it will be bringing Okami to the Wii next year. This has been a popular rumor since pretty much back when the Wii was first announced. The Celestial Brush techniques would certainly lend themselves well to the Wii's motion sensing capabilities. Guess we'll finally get to find out come next year.

I just have one request Capcom:

I just saw this on Kotaku myself! I still need to finish my PS2 copy. O_o I'm over halfway through, then I got distracted with some other games. ><

I think just the change to the wiimote will lend some extra difficulty to the game, but it wouldn't hurt to make the puzzles a little bit harder. I thought some of the bosses were tricky, but the fight that you have to do like 3-4 times is rediculously easy (trying not to spoil it for those who haven't played it yet), just time consuming.

I'm sure I'll buy it for the Wii too. I think I'm still going to finish the game on PS2, then hopefully after a year it'll be new to me again.

Could be interesting if they added difficulty levels, and some new content. I just finished Okami yesterday and I have to admit it was pretty easy (biggest challenge in the game was the Tobi races, and Blockhead. And they had nothing to do with the actual battle system) .

Another nice thing they could change is making the "Animal Crossing" voices a on/off option since they're very annoying. I don't mind reading stuff, but it's hard to concentrate on reading with the "mrnrnr mrn mrrrnllllrnn" in the backround. XD

Otherwise I think it's a pretty good idea, and I'll be looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

Yeesh, it's about damn time they announce it, they've been leading us along for way too long.

Maybe I'll buy it again and actually FINISH the game this time.

The Wii port is being handled by Ready at Dawn, the developers of Daxter and God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP.

You're not the only one, but it certainly won't be the first time.

Oooh, I loooove Okami. I'm on my second time beating it or so. I don't have a Wii, but I plan to get one eventually... Playing it with the Wii's controller would be very interesting, but I don't know if i want to buy it again, hahah.
