Is Okami HD Heading To Xbox One?
According to an article published by Kotaku this morning, the answer appears to be… quite possibly.
Okami is a PS2-era classic that was remastered into full HD for a PS3 release in Japan all the way back in 2012. That version of the game was only ever made available as a digital download – but all evidence is pointing to the next release of the game being physical, across multiple platforms, and coming soon (by games industry standards, at any rate).
Long before that though, it was a cult classic due in no small part to its outstanding cel shaded, Japanese watercolor art style and gameplay that allowed you to draw on the environment. Some of the dev team responsible for it went on to make Bayonetta – which speaks volumes!
Kotaku claims to have seen evidence from two independent European retailers, both indicating that the game will receive a physical release on Xbox One and PS4 on 12th December 2017. Their efforts to contact publisher Capcom have thus far been met with silence – make of that what you will.
