A limited edition run of high-resolution fine art prints based on Capcom's Okami are now available for purchase through digital art specialists Cook and Becker. Each print is hand-numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. None of them were painted by a sun goddess who takes on the form of a wolf with a paintbrush tail, unfortunately.

Not familiar with Cook and Becker's work? It's the art dealership behind the "museum-grade" prints featuring the fungal apocalypse from The Last of Us and the futuristic landscapes of Mirror's Edge and the Mass Effect series, plus many more.

The Okami prints range in price from $80 to $130, while frames can add upward of $200. We hope you've already got plenty of pennies saved up though, as the sun has already set on several prints, which is a slightly poetic way of saying sold out.

Art dealer Cook & Becker in conjunction with Capcom presents the official Okami art print collection

Museum-grade limited editions from a celebrated classic

Amsterdam – Art dealership Cook & Becker in conjunction with Capcom is pleased to announce a collection of limited-edition, museum-grade Okami art prints. The selection encompasses designs and promotional art from the game Okami that was released on PlayStation 2, Wii and HD remastered on PlayStation 3. All prints are available from today via Cook & Becker's online gallery htttp://www.candb.com.

Okami is known for its original visual design, Japanese sumi-e inspired cel-shaded artwork and its Celestial Brush gameplay. The game is set sometime in classical Japanese history and combines several Japanese myths, legends and folklore to tell the story of how the land was saved from the serpent Orochi and Yami ("darkness") by the Shinto sun goddess Amaterasu, who took the form of a white wolf.

The adventure game was developed by Japanese Clover Studio and published by Capcom. The three Japanese artists that have been mostly responsible for the visual style of Okami are Takeyasu Sawaki, Kenichiro Yoshimura and Mari Shimazaki. Most of the prints in the Okami art collection feature their artwork and design. Takeyasu Sawaki is a well-know character designer and art director, known for his work on Devil May Cry and El Shaddai, Ascension of the Metatron. Apart from Okami, Kenichiro Yoshimura and Mari Shimazaki are also known for their fantastic character designs for video game Bayonetta

All the prints in the Okami collection are hand-numbered museum-grade Certified Art Giclees™ and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
