Okami HD coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC on December 12th, 2017

The chance of the remastered Okami HD rumor not being true were pretty slim to be honest, so it was just a matter of time before Capcom made an announcement. So here we are! Okami HD is officially headed to the PS4, Xbox One and PC this December (December 12th, 2017 to be exact) for $19.99. Capcom announced that the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X versions will feature 4K visuals for those with compatible displays. Yes there was already an Okami HD released for the PS3 a number of years back, so this is more or less a much more visually enhanced version of that title.

Below are the first screens and announcement video.

The much loved and highly acclaimed BAFTA award-winning visual masterpiece Okami HD will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally and as a digital download for Windows PC across North America on December 12, 2017 for MSRP $19.99.

The original game, released to critical and consumer acclaim in 2006, was hailed as one of the most beautiful games ever created, and this latest release with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style is now even more breath-taking as the graphics have been updated to take advantage of modern high resolutions. Okami HD will be compatible with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro while featuring stunning 4K graphics on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and supported PC hardware.

In Okami HD players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. Players must use Amaterasu?s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and color. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi?s curse.

Players will be able to choose between playing in a modern widescreen format or the original 2007 release?s 4:3 ratio. Interactive loading game screens from the original game are also included, allowing players to earn bonus demon fangs which can be traded for in-game items.
