Ōkami HD Coming to PS3; Includes Move Support

Ōkami, a highly artistic Japanese action/adventure game, is soon heading to the PS3. As stated in the post title, the game does include Move support (similar to the Wii version), but with HD graphics. Here’s a synopsis of the title:

Okami HD has the player take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster, Orochi, turns the world into a ruined, colorless wasteland, Amaterasu must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory and defeat the demon in charge of the destruction.

Based off of the trailer above, it’s still a great looking game, even by today’s standards, thanks to said HD treatment. Given that the original PS2 version released on the dawn of the PS3 launch, how many of you missed out on this game? If you have played it before, not only will purchasing this title be a feast for your eyes, but there is also 51 trophies (including a Platinum) for you trophy hunters out there. You can expect to see this title available on PSN this Fall in North America and Europe.

    this was one of my favorite ps2 games, with beautiful art and music. Add in trophies to this HD remake and I would be more than willing to play as Ammy again

    There is full trophy support and a Plat as the trailer shows. This is one of the games I regret not playing, now I will get a chance to relive the glorious PS2 era! hoping for a PS+ discount.

    one game i never played that’s in my ps2 collection that i was going to play until my BC ps3 died, so it’s sitting in a box, hopefully this will be a PSN game.

    I loved this game on Wii. The Move support will really make a difference for those that only played it on PS2.

    @hobbes: PSN release, $19.99, Platinum trophy.

    @Darklurkr23: Now now, remember we don’t like it when someone has a case of the “hardcorz lulz” around here! All systems are great systems… well except for the 360.

    I had never heard about this title, but it certain looks very interesting! Might be a good remake to pick up.
