Okami is a phenomenal game: it was one of the best of the last generation, it’s gorgeous, it's fluid, it's... well, you see where this is going. It's a great game.
The game was a critical success, but a bit of a financial flop. A sequel seemed unlikely, but thankfully, on March 15th, we will have our sequel. It’s pared down a bit, but some time spent with the demo makes me confident that we have something worth playing on our hands.
