Hideki Kamiya directed both Bayonetta and Okami and given the opportunity, he'd like to bring both series to the Nintendo 3DS, though perhaps not quite the way you'd expect. "Given the chance, I'd like to make a game based on Jeanne from Bayonetta," Kamiya told Siliconera at PAX. "Something that...

Capcom announced an October 30 North American release date for Okami HD, with Europe following the next day. The remastering of the already beautiful 2006 game hits PlayStation Network next month for $19.99, and comes with Move support. HexaDrive (with Capcom's assistance) is the studio in charge...

If the latest screens of Okami HD didn't fill you up, this short clip of the Ryoshima Coast from the game might do the trick. Go straight to Capcom Japan's upload of the video to get lost in its glorious HD visuals. Okami HD will land on PS3 in Japan on November 1 for $19.99....

We usually see an HD port of a beloved classic as what we remember the original looking like. Sure, Okami has always been this beautiful, right? Well ... it turns out that, looking back, the PS2 version was almost as hazy as our memory....

Okami is currently being remastered for the PS3, with full 1080p HD graphics and PlayStation Move support. This is all according to the latest issue of Famitsu, as revealed by Twitter sleuth Si...

Even dogs took part in the cosplay activities at this year's Otakon convention, with Dante the dog here dressing in the divine garb of Okami's heroine, the goddess Amaterasu. If you have a white dog you'd like to style as Amaterasu (and who is a good boy like Dante -- good boy!) his owners det...

The producers of Okamiden realized they were in a pickle, marketing-wise, when they were finishing up the Western version of the game just as the 3DS and Pok émon Black and White were being announced for the same release window. Capcom decided to thread the needle and send Okamiden out ri...

If I were to overthink Okamiden, I would suspect its premise is a subtle commentary on the game's own development. The world of Nippon as it appears in the DS game is filled with the small children of the people and gods found in Clover Studio's 2006 PS2 game Okami. It's tempting to say that this...

Capcom just won the Okamiden arms race. Whereas GameStop offers a pretty cute paintbrush stylus with pre-orders of the celestial DS adventure game, Capcom's own online store is offering ... this. A tiny plush Chibiterasu keychain, small enough for you to bring with you everywhere, forever, like the ...

Were the Okamiden teacups not puppy-shaped enough for you? Capcom's latest Japan-only merchandise offering is this mug, with Chibiterasu's face, tail, and wings (is that what those are?) on it. The mug will be out in February for ¥1,890 ($23) -- plenty of time for you to start that coffee habit....

Capcom sent out some new media for the upcoming DS adventure Okamiden, the scaled-down sequel to the PS2/Wii game Okami, starring the scaled-down descendant of that game's heroine. Nice how that works out, isn't it? One aspect that isn't scaled down is Chibiterasu's arsenal. The Celestial Brush allo...

Joining the mighty Thor in Marvel vs. Capcom 3's character lineup is Amaterasu, sun goddess, white wolf and star of Capcom's Okami. She may be the smallest fighter on the roster, but, as you can see in the video after the break, she's as fierce as she is amazingly rendered....

There are not one but two brilliant Okami-related items in this post, and we tossed and turned all last night about which one we should put pre-break, and which one we should put after. In the end, we flipped a coin, and this amazing Okami polystone statue won. It features a terrific sculpture of e...

Starting in June, Capcom will be offering a pair of Okami-based mugs for ¥3,150 ($34). Siliconera spotted the "tea cups," which feature the canine protagonists from Okami and the upcoming DS sequel Okamiden. The vessels also change color as you pour hot liquid into them, blossoming from dark de...

The evidence continues to build for a worldwide release of Okamiden. Less than a week after a European trademark appeared for the DS Okami sequel, Siliconera discovered an American trademark for the same thing, filed February 12. At this point, it seems assured that Capcom will localize the game, un...

Though we're confident Capcom wouldn't leave Okamiden, the DS followup to the critically acclaimed Okami, in Japan, it's nice to have some supporting evidence. Siliconera spotted a trademark for Okamiden on the European trademark database, suggesting that Capcom plans to publish it in Europe. And if...
