Okami HD will paint its way to Switch this August

17 May 2018

Capcom has announced when Okami HD will release on Nintendo Switch, the classic action-adventure game in which you must save a Japanese-themed land from a awful curse.

The game will be getting a digital release in the U.S. with some kind of collector's edition in Japan.

Further news was revealed about the game later today, with Nintendo announcing a release date: August 9th. The remaster will feature fully functional motion controls, and touch screen controls, which are absent from the Xbox/PlayStation versions. Originally released on the PlayStation 2 on April 20, 2006, Okami is set in a Japanese folklore version of Nippon beset by demons and an encroaching darkness.

Play as the Shinto sun goddess Amaterasu in the form of a white wolf as you travel through a world that's now even more stunning than a decade ago. So much so that it got ported onto Xbox One, PC, and the PS4 only just past year, causing Switch fans to wonder when their turn would come. Since its release, the game has been ported to several other systems including the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 and, with the recent release of Okami HD, the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
