Okami Gets New Fashion From SuperGroupies
Okami sneakers, Okami umbrellas, and Okami blousons are all coming soon thanks to Japanese brand SuperGroupies.
Capcom’s (and PlatinumGames) Okami is back again, this time in fashion form, thanks to SuperGroupies. The brand opened for preorders multiple clothing items for the Japanese mythology inspired action adventure. Let’s take a look.
First, we have the Amaterasu Model Fur Blouson (22,800 yen without tax)
A fur blouson with a color scheme of Amaterasu. A pocket is on the left side with Amaterasu’s name embroidered on it, and the flames and sun in the back symbolize the Japanese sun goddess.
Next up, we have the Amaterasu Model Sneakers (10,800 yen without tax)
These are Ivory-based sneakers. You can find Amaterasu’s forehead mark on the shoe tongue and on the side you can find a leather tag of Issun, Amaterasu’s companion. Two types of shoelaces, basic flat laces and fluffy laces representing Amaterasu’s fur, will be included.
Lastly, we have the Amaterasu Model Umbrella (6,800 yen without tax)
An umbrella with Amaterasu’s color scheme. With a design that combines Amaterasu and Issun’s art interpretation, in-game clouds, and the effects when Amaterasu runs. With this subtle design, you can use this umbrella on all occasion without outing yourself as a huge Okami otaku.
All Okami items are up for Pre-order on SuperGroupies from July 1 until July 20 at 12:00 PM, 2020 (Japan Standard Time). The fur blouson and sneakers launch October 2020. The umbrella launches November 2020.
SuperGroupies is a Japanese fashion brand specialized in items based on anime and games. It regularly does similar collabs with popular IPs.
Okami was first released for PlayStation 2 on April 20, 2006 in Japan, on September 19, 2006 in North America, and on February 14, 2007 in Europe and Australia. A remaster port titled Okami HD recently launched on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox one. Okami was developed by Clover Studio with Hideki Kamiya as its Director. The studio’s members worked for Capcom and later formed PlatinumGames together. Yusuke Hashimoto, one of the most iconic members and who was there since the Capcom era, has recently left PlatinumGames, and is working on a project with Breath of Fire Artist Tatsuya Yoshikawa.
