Critical Gamer writes: The spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Okami, Okamiden looks to capture the charm and appeal of its predecessor and transfer it to the DS. Going by the Tokyo Game Show English demo, Capcom appear to be well on their way to doing just that.
Taking place after the events of the first game, the demo opens in a flooded forest with the player taking control of a young boy named Kuni and Chibiterasu, a celestial wolf cub born of the sun goddess Amaterasu. If merchandise is anything to go by, this adorable pup has already hit it off with the Japanese public with his likeness plastered on everything from mugs to keychains, and even his own pair of slippers. Exploration, puzzles and combat ensue as the pair take in their distinctive surroundings, moving from the roof of a partially submerged temple to a darkened cave whilst fighting off demons, interacting with NPCs, undertaking mini quests and bringing balance back to nature.
