Okamiden screens are predictably cute

At this point, Capcom's Okamiden is succeeding with its two-pronged attack of nice graphics and adorable baby wolves. Looking at these screens, we feel only vestiges of the outrage we once felt about the idea of continuing Clover's work in the developer's absence. Instead, the feeling of wanting to play this game has overtaken us.

These lovely screens show possibly the most sensible reason for putting Okami on the DS: reduced development costs the Celestial Brush. Chibiterasu can use the Brush (which, for you, is the stylus) to rebuild a bridge, restore life to a tree, and, of course, to cut stuff. But really cutely, because everything Chibiterasu does is adorable.
