Okami HD PS4 gameplay

The release date for the HD re-release of Okami to the PlayStation 4 is almost here, with the game scheduled to release next on December 12. With that in mind, Capcom has released a three new trailers, two of which showcase more of the celestial brush, and one that goes more in-depth on the demons you’ll encounter in the game.

Judging from the three trailers, not much has changed since the game originally released, but that isn’t a bad thing. Players will still guide Amaterasu through various puzzles using the brush, and the enemies you encounter still look wonderfully designed. If anything, these trailers should continue to get fans excited.
For more on Okami HD, check out our review. Here’s what we had to say about the PS3 version:

When this game was created on the PlayStation 2, pausing the game mid-fight to allow you to position the cursor and draw lines/shapes made sense, and helped compensate for the sluggishness of drawing lines and shapes with an analog stick. But in today’s games, such actions would likely play out in real time; your paintbrush cursor would stay on-screen at all times, allowing you to slash and stroke at will, all the while maintaining immersion in the wonderful world of Nippon. The Move helps to create more accurate paint strokes, but it isn’t nearly as satisfying as it could be. To top things off, you lose control of the game’s camera when using the Move. This is really the only blemish on the otherwise outstanding high-definition remaster of Okami.

Some PlayStation Move gripes aside, Okami HD should still be on any gamer’s purchase list. The true vision of the creators has seemingly been realized, in glorious 1080p high definition. Everything looks great, and the game still plays well. If you haven’t yet played this captivating, artful title, you owe yourself the service. For only $19.99, a wondrous adventure awaits.
