Following the reveal of the Japanese release date of Okami HD‘s port for Nintendo Switch, Capcom released the first screenshots and information about it.

The retail version of the game costing 2,990 yen plus taxes in Japan will get a reversible cover art with a different illustration. There will also be a limited edition for 3,990 yen plus taxes which will include a soundtrack CD with 22 tracks.

There is also another luxury limited edition costing a whopping 24,074 yen ($219) plus taxes, including the soundtrack CD, a silver necklace, and a furry Switch carrying case. You can see them in the gallery at the bottom of the post, alongside a video giving samples of the soundtrack CD.

We also learn more about the port itself. The touchscreen will be supported in portable mode, in order to draw the brush strokes. You can also hold the R button to do it with the stick if you prefer.

In TV or Tabletop mode the gyroscope in the JoyCon is supported so that you can hold the R button and use motion controls in order to easily draw the strokes. There are various settings to modify the sensitivity of the gyroscope to your taste.

Below you can check out, alongside the pictures mentioned above, the box art, the key art (in both versions), and the first screenshots.

The game will come to Japan on August 9th. No western release has been announced for the moment.
