Capcom will launch Okami HD on August 9, with it now available to preorder via the Nintendo eShop.

Update: Capcom has revised their announcement, saying the game will be available for preorder through the Nintendo eShop closer to the game's release.


Further news was revealed about the game later today, with Nintendo announcing a release date: August 9th. The cel-shaded art style brings Japanese folklore to life, while immersive motion controls and HD Rumble make this the ultimate port of one the greatest games of all time. Originally released on the PlayStation 2 on April. 20, 2006, Okami is set in a Japanese folklore version of Nippon beset by demons and an encroaching darkness. With the wandering artist Issun as your ever-helpful guide, you must wield the Celestial Brush and use different brushstrokes to create miracles to defeat enemies and solve puzzles to restore light to the world.

Back in the March Direct, it was announced that Okami HD will be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime during the Aussie winter.
