Capcom has now officially revealed the release date of Okami Remastered, it is December 21. The game will cost 2,990 yen plus tax according to Ryokutya2089.
Capcom you're breaking my balls here. This is nice and all...but seriously give me Viewtiful Joe 1 & 2 HD already! Those games have never been rereleases ever and it's high time that changed.
Even though no official platforms have been announced thus far, it's interesting to note that the South Korean ratings board said this game would be available for PC, PS4, & XO. I say interesting because one would wonder why Capcom would bother putting a game as Japanese oriented as Okami on that latter platform.
Well if Capcom or any other Japanese publisher thinks the game will sell outside of Japan then they will release it on platforms that have a decent install base. Publishers want to make money and I doubt porting it to the Xbox One requires a lot of resources. Especially since they also have a PC version. I also expect a Switch version later on.
Why wouldn't they? It was already ported to the x86 architecture. Extra development costs are low, and potential returns high. And Okami was originally well received outside of Japan anyway.
Dang c'mon capcom
