While it was originally rumored that Capcom’s Okami, a classic title and one that has a devoted following, is getting an HD remaster. Set for release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Okami HD will be released on December 12th, 2017. It will be priced at $19.99 and will receive both a digital and physical release for PS4/Xbox One, while the PC will be released on Steam.
“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”
The remaster will see both the original format (4:3) as well as a modern widescreen format (16:9). Okami HD will also support 4K on the PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and the PC.
