Full Version: Okami for the Wii Confirmed
Apocalypse Tribe HQ > Diversions > Entertainment

Capcom has finally confirmed persistent rumours that Okami is coming to Nintendo Wii, telling a London audience this week that the game will arrive on our screens in spring 2008.

Celebrated on PS2 for its absorbing puzzle and action adventure mechanics, gripping narrative inspired by Japanese folklore and beautiful watercolour visuals, its rebirth on Wii has been much hyped.

The game also lends itself rather well to the potential of Nintendo's Wiimote for control. Amaterasu's Celestial Brush - a paintbrush used in combat and for solving puzzles - is a perfect fit for the Wiimote, and so it proves, while combat will also include various "motion-controlled physical attacks".

On the whole though, it's the game that Kristan loved so much it got top marks, calling it "a game so engrossing, so crafted and so life-affirming that nothing else in the world seems to matter". In sentence number two.
Is this a sequel or a port?
Is that Zelda game where you play as the wolf the whole time?

I never played the original (lack of PS2 >.>) so even if this is just a port with wii controls throw in so you can chase your own tail easier, I'll be checking it out. Wii definitely needs more "real" games like this
Yeah, the PS2 game is an excellent title. It's basically the PS2 equivalent to zelda, long-ass quest, great story, clever puzzles. The paintbrush-stroke technique you use for "casting" would translate well to the Wii, but if its just a port a la RE4-Wii then I'll probably pass. megaman-run.gif
