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.
It's great to see that the Okami legacy lives on. Hopefully this miniature version will do the original justice. Based on this preview, it definitely sounds promising.
