      I'm fairly certain that trailer just shows the entire ending of the game.

        If you haven't played it, it teases just enough but doesn't really give away much.

      Man, I wish they could bring this to the 360. :(

      Ōkami is one of the games that would be a fantastic candidate for the Wii-U.

        i liked it on the wii, using the controller to do the painting made sense

        although it'd probably be easier to draw stuff on the wii, and having a hd version on the wii u would rule

      I won't play this with the Move, but I will sure as heck purchase... about an hour after it comes out after hearing what regular people think of this port.

      So did anyone else find this a pretty good game with big boring stretches strewn throughout? I will pick this game up for a week and then drop it because I'll be on some meandering fetch quest. I'll probably finish this game in 2019.

        The problem with Okami is that the first 2-5 hrs (which, in the PS2 version, including about 30 minutes of unskippable backstory), is slow and easy to get. It's once you get to the more open world that the game kicks in to good gear.

      This will be a day one purchase for me as I never finished the original release on PS2. My move is still sitting in an unopened box(it was a present), so I might bring it out to try with this game.

      I kept meaning to buy this on my PS2 but never did, now I can rectify that mistake on a different system!
