As part of the weekly countdown to Okamiden‘s release, Capcom is releasing more details about characters and enemies appearing in it. This week’s set of characters is full of expys of some of the best members of Okami‘s cast, as well as a cool-looking turtle demon dude.

Hit the jump for some descriptions of the characters and some concept art of each one.

Ryo
This demon is the sum of all those who lusted after worldly pelf. At some point this demon traded the pursuit of riches for human souls. He is always calculating the best ways of luring new souls to his clutches, and will use any means he can to obtain them including lending out souls in order to collect a fatally high interest.

Shiranui
The grandfather of Chibiterasu, an incarnation of Amaterasu, the sun-god-turned-wolf in Ōkami.

Isshaku
The grandfather of Issun, he played a big role in expelling Orochi over 100 years ago. Once the companion of Shiranui (the incarnation of Amaterasu at that time), he watched helplessly as Shiranui sacrificed himself for the sake of Nippon.

Shakuya
The spirit of the sacred tree, Konohana, and watches over Kamiki Village. She gives advice to Chibiterasu in an effort to save Nippon from the evil that has attacked the land once more.
