Okami Wii Supports Widescreen, 480p

Ready at Dawn's upcoming Wii edition of Clover Studios' beloved wolf adventure Okami will include 16:9 widescreen and 480p progressive scan support, according to a new fact sheet that appeared in publisher Capcom's official store.

The lack of those two features were among the chief complaints critics had regarding the original PlayStation 2 edition, which only outputted in 4:3 and 480i. Both the PlayStation 2 and the Wii are capable of outputting widescreen images in 480p resolution.

Outside of the obvious Wii Remote control tweaks and some miscellaneous technical improvements, developer Ready at Dawn has been adamant that it will not modify the actual content of the game. The Wii edition of Okami arrives in North America March 25.
