Clover's delightful 2006 paint 'em Okami is coming to PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network, reborn in HD resolution with optional PlayStation Move support as Okami HD.

Okami, if you missed the original PS2 game, its Wii port, and the semi-sequel Okamiden for DS, is an action-adventure-y affair about the sun god Amaterasu coming down in wolf form to restore a ruined world. Armed with the mighty Celestial Brush, you draw characters and glyphs to influence the environment and attack foes. You can control this with the regular controller in Okami HD, like in the original, or whip out your PlayStation Move wand to slap down some ink.

Okami HD is coming to PSN this fall at $19.99.

      One of my favorite games, up there with halflife.

      I'll wait maybe two hours after it comes out to see if there are any surprises, but definitely a purchase day one otherwise. Vita support would be amazing.

      Amazing how many re-releases Clovers games get and yet Capcom shut those poor bastards down at their peak.

        From what I've read, Capcom wanted to fold Clover into the main development organization and have them work on existing properties. They basically said, "NO", closed down, and then most of them formed Platinum Games.

        Great decision, since Platinum is independent, and still understands how to make fun games, and Capcom is still stuck with rehashes and sifting through their dormant IP bin.

      I'm guessing this is just a high def port of Ready at dawn's Wii version. From what I understand, they couldn't find all of the original data for the ps2 version so they had to make a new paper filter for the wii version that isn't as pronounced as the original but does have better color contrast.

      I liked the game but it was a little frustrating at times when the game couldn't recognize my brush strokes especially with circles for renewing trees or creating bombs in battle. Though i'm not sure whether I blame my own terrible drawing skills or the pointer on the wiimote.
