Kamiya originally wanted realistic graphics for Okami, was a simulation game at one point

Nintendo's new Wonderful 101 Iwata Asks talk is filled with juicy tidbits about director Hideki Kamiya's past and the projects he worked on. Okami was among the games discussed, and Kamiya was more than willing to share a number of interesting details. (Hideki Kamiya, okami, Okami HD, PS3, Wii)

I actually like this kind of interviews that Iwata does because they usually end up having a long conversation.

the final product tuned out beautifully, the "only" thing i didn't like was the human characters design

It speaks to his good judgment that he chose not to.

Wow that's major news for me!
Wonderful 101 and Pikimin 3 are pretty tempting games to buy a Wii U

Those 2 and Bayonetta 2 are the reasons I'm glad my roommate bought a Wii U.

This has been known. You can unlock the realistic version of Amaterasu, and theres a video of him talking about the art style change. Old news for sure.

This needs a true console sequel so bad and the WiiU could make it so fantastic. When the gamepad was first shown off Okami was the first thing that came to mind for a game that could really show off the potential of the system and the uses of touch screen. This is not a series that deserves to be left behind for top 10 forgotten franchises articles in the future.
