Capcom has announced that Okami HD will finally arrive for PSN at the end of this October. An HD remake of the 2006 PS2 game/2008 Wii title, the game will be priced at a mere 19.99 and will include full Move support. For those not previously acquainted with the title (or just looking for an example of the significantly improved visuals in action), check out the latest trailer for the game, plus a bevy of screenshots, below:
I will make no bones about it: Okami is one of the best games ever made using the classic Zelda formula. It is so good as a matter of fact, that it matches in quality some of the best titles ever made in that Nintendo series, no mean feat for any game. If ever there was a title that deserved an HD remake, it is this one, especially in light of the poor sales that have continually dogged (no pun intended) the game. If the above images and trailer did not do the job of selling you on the game then nothing will and that would be a shame. Mainly because you would be missing out on experiencing one of the pinnacle gaming experiences of the last decade. Okami HD arrives for PS3 via PSN this October 30 in the US and October 31, Halloween itself, in Europe and the UK.
