According to this week’s Famitsu, the game’s scheduled to be released in Japan this coming November.
Still no word on its North American and European counterparts, but you bet that’s it probably coming out around the same timeframe knowing Capcom’s release schedule with their past HD ports.
Xbox 360 owner? They’ll most likely port it there too internationally as evidenced by their Devil May Cry HD collection. Forget what I said there *points to the UPDATE after the break*.
Are you excited? I know I am, because Okami is one of my favorite PlayStation 2 games. Would be awesome though if it’ll have some Move functionality similar to the Wii port, but that’s just me and I don’t even own any ridiculous Move accessory. I’ll probably get one as soon as Wonderbook comes out. Kidding, of course. Or am I? No, I really was. Really.
UPDATE: Confirmed for North America and Europe, $19.99 price tag, digital release and Move support —
SAN MATEO, Calif. — June 19, 2012 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that award winning Ōkami® will be re-born this fall as a digital download on PlayStation®Network for $19.99. Already one of the most beautiful games ever created, the addition of HD graphics will make this new version of Ōkami even more stunning.
