"When Clover Studios broke off on its own I wondered what the heck could Capcom be thinking? Here was a studio packed with the talent that created great games like Devil May Cry, Resident Evil and Viewtiful Joe, and Capcom was letting them go out on there own! Well lucky for Capcom and for us they’ve contracted Clover for a good amount of titles and one of the first new Clover titles is “Okami”, a highly stylized game based on traditional Japanese mythos and solid “Zelda-style” gameplay. To say that many people were excited to see the almost hand-drawn and cel-shaded graphics would be an understatement. With “Okami” you can tell the developers consciously decided to make something more than a game, and we should all feel a little luckier knowing that developers can get paid to make games like this."
