Unfortunately I didn't get to finish it on PS2
But now I have a reason to finish it in HD on the PS3.
Marceles  +   1255d ago
I remember when they first came out, playing Okami and finishing it, and then playing Twilight Princess shortly after and thinking "wow, I actually think a game is better than a Zelda game".

If you haven't played it yet, you absolutely have to now.

Twilight Princess might've won Game of the Year, but I honestly think Okami should've gotten it over Zelda.
mewhy32  +   1255d ago
Well this should be good. I didn't get a chance to play the original but will probably pick this one up.
showtimefolks  +   1255d ago
will get it day one if priced right hopefully capcom won't mess this up pricing wise, also capcom's last few efforts HD collection wise have been lazy


so hopefully they will do a good job, RE4 was priced 20 bucks you got to be kidding me
FamilyGuy  +   1255d ago
All HD remakes have come out at $40 so far, I've never been interested in this game so I might pick it up after it hits $30 or so depending on what other games have been released by the time it comes out.
Studio-YaMi  +   1255d ago
I've read on on the capcom unity video on youtube that it's gonna be $20 on PSN
TBM  +   1255d ago

this is what I've been waiting on the last few years. i loved this game when i got it for my ps2.
princejb134  +   1255d ago
Love this game
AgreeFairy  +   1255d ago
Glad we can play Okamiden on PS3 too!

Oh wait...
SaiyanFury  +   1255d ago
I was reading about this last night. When I first read that it was confirmed, the first thing I did was clench both of my fists and exclaimed, "YES!" very nearly at the top of my lungs. I've loved the PS2 version since it came out on day one, it's one of my all time favourite games. Actually, when I saw Sony debut the Move, Okami was one of the first things I thought would be perfect for it as well, haha.

1080p, Move support, and it's priced at 20 dollars. I adored the game on PS2, and I'm more than happy to give Capcom 20 dollars of my money. For me, this is only the second thing Capcom have done right this generation, the other being Dragon's Dogma. I can't wait to play Okami in 1080p with my Move! :)

i love how this is awesome to sony fans, but Ocarina of Time, which was actually completely redone graphically, not just adjusted resolution, was a cash cow money scheme.
Wintersun616  +   1255d ago
Ocarina of Time - Nintendo 64, Gamecube re-release, Wii Virtual Console re-release, 3DS port.

Okami - PS2, PS3 HD remaster.

Yeah, I wonder why.

edit: apparently there was a Wii release for Okami too. But it doesn't matter, you're just exaggerating the reaction OoT 3DS got. Also Okami HD is one of the most wished for hd remasters.

I have never played Okami before but the art style and brilliant storyline that this game has (told to me by fans of the game), means the game is NUMBER 1 on my hitlist!!!! Can't wait to play this masterpiece.
MariaHelFutura  +   1256d ago
This deserves some sort of celebration. I'm pouring a drink.
TheBigShamona  +   1256d ago
And im ripping my bong!
DeadSpaced  +   1255d ago
Now THAT is a way to celebrate.
Burning_Finger  +   1256d ago
Sweet. I want a vita version as well.
dirthurts  +   1255d ago
And pc too...please???
Spread the love!
linkratos  +   1255d ago
gotta love the haters. i hate the idea that people don't want as many gamers as possible to play their favorite games. that's why I despise the idea of exclusives if they aren't in house developers.
dirthurts  +   1255d ago
Sony fanboys only want exclusives. They don't want to share anything, Stingy, selfish gamers.
I am all about sharing. I was more than happy when Crysis 1 and 2 made it to PS3.
I guess not everyone has the maturity to share the sediment. Watch the disagrees roll in. I'll probably even lose a bubble.
dboyman  +   1255d ago
Especially painting using the touchscreen to paint. Capcom is loosing a great opportunity...
KillerPwned  +   1256d ago
Day 1 buy I never got to play this always wanted to. Glad I did not buy it on Wii.
Moncole  +   1256d ago
Its only 10$ on Wii.
Moby-Royale  +   1256d ago
This is for Okami HD.

I can see where you got confused though.

raiden-49  +   1255d ago
I hate playing it on the wii due to the motion controller.
Ult iMate  +   1255d ago
Camera control in the Wii version is awfull due to the lack of second analog stick to control the camera. Controlling camera rotation from a D-pad was frustrating.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1256d ago
Unrelated but i think a GTA HD collection would be awesome.
kingdavid  +   1256d ago
Why lol?

The graphics are arse and wouldnt look better in HD. Just get the GTA collection on xbox , backwards compatible and cheap (or buy them off steam).

Hell nah, i mean for it to be completely redone like the Tony Hawk Hd coming up and i don't wanna have to buy an xbox just to play them.

Oooo nice.

This will have Move support surely.
YoungKingDoran  +   1256d ago
but this is capcom dont forget... re4 didnt get move support.

edit: okay i read elsewhere it will be supported. aww yeaa

I will pre-order as soon as it is announced.

One of my favourite games.
oneangle  +   1256d ago
Hell freaking yes...I was almost tempted to get a wii for this. Hopefully this does well and re-ignites the ip.
Raoh  +   1256d ago
very cool...

Okami Zekkeiban
- PS3 HD Remaster
- November 1st release date in Japan.
- 3990yen
- Supports PS Move.
- First press bonus includes a PSN code for the Okami digital art book for use with PlayView.
GuyManDude  +   1256d ago
That converts to $50 US. It better not be anywhere close to that price here.

$20 or less please.
Skate-AK  +   1256d ago
Well the way Capcom releases HD re-masters I'm sure it will be digital on PSN for $20. I doubt we will get the voucher for the art book though.
christheredhead  +   1256d ago
This is awesome news. The art style is downright gorgeous in Okami. Definitely a game that would work well for an HD upgrade.
baldulf  +   1256d ago
Excellent news. Now let's hope Capcom doesn't screw the remake.

And they better not dare to remove the ending credits again.
Sorrow24  +   1256d ago
The credits will be an on disc DLC, add-on.

6 Months later a re-release will occur that includes the credits.
ZeroChaos  +   1256d ago
My pants seem to have gotten wet...
Panaru  +   1256d ago
Sad that the only Capcom game I'm looking forward to is a remaster, but at least it's one hell of a remaster. Unless Capcom manages to screw this up too.
-Gespenst-  +   1256d ago
Heck yes. Been waiting for this for a long time. First day buy.
HacSawJimThugin  +   1256d ago
One of the GameCubes shining gems...hopefully it will get a 360 release also. I'd love to play this all over in HD.

My bad...I thought I played this on GameCube. I stand corrected.

The original game is on PS2. It got a Wii port later on.
Swiggins  +   1256d ago
I has a happy, it's in my pants.
josephayal  +   1256d ago
I hope for a Wii U port
Samus HD  +   1255d ago
it would be better a sequel for Wii U
Octo1  +   1256d ago
Still have my PS2 copy but has that ugly "Greatest Hits" maroon color crap on the case and CD :S.
smashcrashbash  +   1256d ago
This is going to look so beautiful on the PS3. You guy need to make a sequel to this game. Stat.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1256d ago
They did. It was Okamiden for the DS.
smashcrashbash  +   1255d ago
That doesn't count
Mr_Kuwabara  +   1256d ago
This type of game will work perfectly for the Vita as well since the game has those brush attacks when fighting peeps.
dboyman  +   1255d ago
Painting using the touchscreen to paint would be awesome. A game like Okami is meant on the Vita. Capcom is loosing a great opportunity...
meganick  +   1256d ago
It hasn't been confirmed yet for the West, but I hope it comes to the U.S. soon.
2pacalypsenow  +   1256d ago
Never heard of this , what is it about?
meganick  +   1256d ago
It's a stylized, cel-shaded adventure game that's similar to the 3D Zelda games. It was originally released on PS2 and later ported to the Wii. It was highly rated and is considered a cult classic.
2pacalypsenow  +   1255d ago
MIght check it out
A7XEric  +   1256d ago
And I JUST finally picked this up for the Wii -_-

Oh well, I'm just glad they're bringing it to the system for more people to get to experience it.
Neo-Axl  +   1256d ago
Truthfully I've heard how much of a Gem this game was, But also it sold incredibly Poorly due to lack of folk interested at the time, or lack of advertisement.. regardless I have every PS2 HD collection for my PS3 yet, Denying this would be an insult to my Game library :D!
Ethereal  +   1255d ago
Oh this is great news! I never finished it on PS2, even though I still own it I might pick this up. Great game.
stragomccloud  +   1255d ago
Yes!!!! Day one for me!
PixL  +   1255d ago
Another game I've always wanted to play is coming to PS3.
ShaunCameron  +   1255d ago
Is this gonna be a retail game? I guess it's better late than never.
Zecoquenao  +   1255d ago
I AM IN!!! Even if CAPCOM is "lazy" with the remake, it still is an AMAZING game.
Thank you Clover for the beautiful concept.
AND THANK YOU FOR THE PSMove and Trophies, I hope Vita is the other big surprise!!!
chazjamie  +   1255d ago
i think it will, they already ported marvel vs capcom and sf x tekken. nobody really asked for those games. so i see this happening
Wintersun616  +   1255d ago
Hopefully they put at least a little bit of effort to the trophies this time. RE4 trohies were horrible.
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
Shame, I would have bought it if it came over to Xbox. Oh well.
MariaHelFutura  +   1255d ago
If you don't own a PS3 by now, that's your problem.
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
I have no need for a PS3. Yes there are cool games only on it but there are cool games everywhere, I doubt every user on N4G has a Xbox so why should every user be expected to own a PS3?
Knushwood Butt  +   1255d ago
I don't this one will have Kinect support.

I guess you have that tank game instead.
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
The PS3 version is both controller and move supported, they could make a 360 version that is only controller compatible. I detest motion controls as a whole so I have no plans on picking up Steel Battalion.
DarkHeroZX  +   1255d ago
You have no need for a ps3 yet you call yourself a gamer..... smh
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
That's an elitist attitude, so what if you don't buy every piece of hardware then you are a disgrace to gaming? A gamer is someone who enjoys playing video games, ever hear of retro gamers? How about Handheld gamers and casual gamers? Being a gamer isn't decided by how much hardware you buy but by how much you love playing games.
-Gespenst-  +   1255d ago
You're missing out. I mean if it's that you just don't have the money then that's fine, but you're only conning yourself if that's not the case.

If you ever get a good opportunity, you should really get yourself a PS3 and a few exclusives. The allegiance to big videogame corporations needs to stop. If it's affordable and fun, there shouldn't be anything stopping you.
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
Don't worry I'm not a MS fanboy, I just don't see the point in buying multiple systems because literally every game series I play outside of Halo is multiconsole. There are still so many games on PS360 that I need to play and more are always coming out, yes I'll miss games like Okami HD but then the very next day something like Sonic Adventure 2 HD gets announced. I actually think PS3>360 in terms of available games but I already own my system and I've made a lot of friends through it, I have no plans to jump ship now.
Silly gameAr  +   1255d ago
Well Rockman, I bought a 360 to be able to play the games that I wanted to that weren't on the PS3. I guess if you want to play a game that's not on your console of choice, you either get the console the game is coming out for, or keep hoping for that port.
RockmanII7  +   1255d ago
Good for you man, having both consoles is definitely better than relying on only one. I only buy a few games a year anyway and how I've found other forms of entertainment to keep me busy like tv shows and music, I think that's a major reason why I don't see the need for two systems. I still have like 5 games that I'm trying to beat and many more I want to beat, I just can't warrant buying a second console with that kind of backlog.
