Ready at Dawn Developing Okami Wii

"The development team behind God of War: Chains of Olympus and Daxter, will be bringing Capcom's Okami to the Wii.

"In accordance with our tradition of only working on games we'd like to play, we're proud to announce that we are taking after Clover Studio to bring this incredible game to the platform it was always meant to be on in the first place," Ready at Dawn said. "A second team here at Ready At Dawn is hard at work making this happen. Imagine controlling the celestial brush with your Wii-mote… Can't wait to show it to everyone."

Scheduled to release next spring, Okami is a title that many are saying was made for the Wii. Okami will be the first Wii title made by Ready at Dawn who will be taking over for former Okami developer, Clover Studio.
