No current plans for iPhone/iPad versions of Okamiden

Ōkamiden seems like the perfect fit for the Nintendo DS, with its "Celestial Brush" mechanic that has players using the stylus to draw strokes in the game world to affect the environment and combat. It would also, many w...

Okamiden coming to North America, first hands-on photo
Okamiden coming to North America, first hands-on
by Nick Chester

Fans of things that are good should be pleased to learn that Capcom is bringing Ōkamiden, the Nintendo DS follow-up to the PlayStation 2/Wii title Ōkami, to North America. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the publisher had trademarked the name all over the globe, shortly before announcing it only for Japan at least year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Act shocked, because you don’t want Capcom to feel bad. But it's nice to have confirmation, and after going hands on with a translated trial version of the game at Captivate, I’m convinced the game is headed in a direction that will surely please fans of the original. From the Sumi-e art style to how it feels making sweeping Celestial Brush strokes with the stylus, Ōkamiden truly nails the vibe of its predecessor across the board, while making fitting tweaks unique to Nintendo’s handheld.

New Okamiden trailer is ZOMG SO CUTE!

So far, Capcom has been rather stingy when it comes to showing footage of Okami sequel Okamiden in action. Fortunately, that miserly attitude has been made up for with a nice three-minute trailer that looks absolutely bloody...
