Following today’s announcement of the Okami HD remaster, the Japanese arm of Capcom released two new gameplay videos and another screenshot.
While the screenshot shows another lovely scene in crisp 4K resolution, which is perfect to showcase the unique sumi-e style of the game, the videos showcase the celestial brush and more in action.
We also get a look at the limited edition that will be released in Japan, that unfortunately has not been announced for the west for the moment. It includes a first print version of the game (which will also come with a product code for a PS4 theme and a reversible cover), a cloth wrap with the game’s logo, two special posters in B2 size, and another PS4 theme. It will cost 4,990 yen plus taxes.
Okami was originally released in 2006 for PS2, and then ported to Wii in 2008 and to PS3 in 2012. In this new version, graphics have been updated to support modern resolutions, and 4K will be supported on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC rigs that can handle it.
A toggle between 4:3 and widescreen resolution will also be available (the menu and two screenshots showcasing both versions can be found in the gallery), on top of the original loading screen minigames from the PS2 version.
The game will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe on December 12th, priced at $19.99. The Japanese release will actually come later, on December 21st.
