Okami HD is coming to the PC, PS4, and XB1 on December 12 in both digital and physical editions for $19.99. The game’s critically acclaimed Sumi-e style has been updated to display at 4k for the PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and supported PC hardware with both a modern widescreen format or the original 2007 release’s 4:3 ratio are available for players to choose from.
For those unfamiliar with this masterpiece, the flavor text is as follows:
“In Okami HD players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. Players must use Amaterasu’s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and color. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi’s curse.”
