New Okamiden trailers charm the savage soul

5:40 PM on 12.14.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

Capcom just released a few new trailers showing off characters from the upcoming DS title Okamiden. The focus here is on some of the game's characters who are returning from the original Okami. In the video above, we have Sakuya, who in case you dodn't know is "The spirit of the sacred tree, Konohana, and watches over Kamiki Village. She gives advice to Chibiterasu in an effort to save Nippon from the evil that has attacked the land once more."

It's nice to see the buxom beauty return to the world of Okami, but the real draw to this trailer is that through its window-in-window presentation, it pretty accurately depicts how good Okamiden actually looks on the DS. I've said before that the game looks nearly as good its predecessor, but with only stretched out, pixelated videos to back me up, I haven't had much proof. They say that the proof is in the pudding, and seeing how closely Okamiden Sakuya looks compared to Okami Sakuya is as tasty of a pudding as I could ask for.

You can find more delicious pudding-proof below, in the form of three more "character trailers", with corresponding mini-bios to boot.

Kushi
Though almost sacrificed to Orochi’s in the catastrophe nine months earlier, she is rescued thanks to the efforts of Ameterasu and Susano.  Kushi agrees to marry Susano and the two were blessed with a son, Kuni. Though she can get a bit fed up with Susano’s doting, the three live happily together.

Susano
Descendant of the legendary hero Nagi, Susano is the true hero who defeated Orichi during the events 9 months earlier.  Soon afterwards, he marries Kushi and the two were blessed with a son, Kuni.  A doting father, he cannot help but worry about Kuni.

Issun
He is a small fairy that has crossed the country as a traveling painter.  Through an unexpected meeting with Amaterasu, he became his partner and helped save Nippon from the threat of Orochi.  The two went their separate ways and Issun continues to travel the country as a Celestial Envoy so that he can spread the word of the gods.  He was the first to notice the forthcoming catastrophe and is now set on discovering the truth behind it with Chibiterasu.
