Finally it comes to the west! The remake of Okami in HD. For some time we hear about the remake of Okami, a brilliant Japanese classic, but after the announcement we did not hear anything about it anymore, up to some weeks ago when the Okami remake was officially announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The newest version of Okami will be released on December 12th 2017.
Okami, the remake series
This is not the first time Okami gets a remake, because after the original came out in 2006 on PlayStation 2 there were remakes released of this game on the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3. The Okami games have never done great in the west, but maybe this high definition of Okami can turn things around, because Okami really deserves to get some recognition in the world of gaming; let’s just hope that three is a charm in this regard.
In Okami gamers get emerged in a beautiful 3D world that look like the drawings that can be found on ancient Japanese paper scrolls that have Japanese calligraphy on them. Gamers play as the sun goddess Amatarasu, who can take on the form of a white wolf, and your goal is to bring life back on earth. To save the world you need to fight of monsters that want to block your path, and that want to distract you from your main goal. When you defeat monsters, you will see that life returns to earth in the form of colours and people.
The ultimate 4K and regular game experience
The remaster of Okami supports 4K resolution for people who have all the necessary machinery to make sure that the actual 4K experience can come to their screens, but needless to say that Okami HD can also be played in a 4:3 aspect ratio, and by doing so you also get the best Okami experience possible.
In case you like to see a great game in an original and quite inventive game-setting, and with innovative gameplay, than Okami is most definitely your thing!
This game was later released for Nintendo Switch as well.
