The IGN's game of the month and various trusted game sources great game youve never played (Ex: G4 IGN GT) winner okami ( origionally for ps2, released september 06) will be released in april. Who wants to play it?
P.S. clover studios does not exist any more it has merged with capcom. noted from latest news release.
Even though i've already played and beaten the ps2 version, this still looks really beautiful and it'll be interesting to use the wiimote as a paintbrush and whatnot. I just hope they make a second one soon.
I thought I read somewhere that a sequel is unlikely to happen due to the closure of Clover Studios. Hopefully that's wrong and Capcom should still hold the rights to the game. My only concern is who would they hire to design the sequel? I guess as long as the talent is there, it really doesn't matter. Just don't want to see a great franchise get dragged through the mud.
Oh, and yes. I will be playing Okami for the Wii even though I played it on PS2.
Well the good news is that clover no longer belongs to Capcom. Nintendo actually bought out Clover and kept them open as far as i'm aware. And with as much power Nintendo has behind it and testing out the water with Okami on the wii, maybe they'll decide to go through with a sequel.
As a side note: Wouldn't it be sweet if the development teams of Okami teamed up with the team that does Zelda? Nintendo's powerhouse would get new ideas and Clover will have the reliablility of the Zelda team.
man, i'm pumped about this one. when i first saw a trailer for it i didn't look at the system it was for and was like "sweet, an awesome crazy japanese game that'll put the wiimote to good use". and then i saw that it was for ps2 and died a little. now that part is alive again
Well... considering that the new game is out and there seems to be no new people posting, I figured this thread is pretty much a zombie. I'm just really pissed that people don't give the game its credit. I am a Zelda fanatic, but Okami was on par with Twilight Princess in my opinion.
I remember back then when they said how awesome this game would be for the Wii or DS and the developers said that they would never consider putting it on either console. So, when I found out that its on the Wii, I couldnt help but laugh. Anyone else remember this?
