"Given the chance, I'd like to make a game based on Jeanne from Bayonetta," Kamiya told Siliconera at PAX. "Something that's...

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.%Gallery-158823%%Gallery-158828%

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.

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.
