Okamiden demo graces Japan's Nintendo Channel next month

In a move that is entirely too rare, Capcom will distribute a demo of its DS adventure Okamiden via the Wii Nintendo Channel in Japan. The demo will be available through Wiis from September 8 through October 5. It will also be distributed via "DS Station" download kiosks throughout Japan from September 9 through October 6, and through Nintendo Zone connections (found in McDonalds) from September 10 through October 7. The game is out in Japan on September 30.

We're checking with Capcom to find out if there are any plans to distribute a demo in North America before the game's 2011 release.
