Capcom released this gameplay footage of Okamiden yesterday and it's pretty much the cutest thing I've seen this week. Chibiterasu is just so pudgy and I love watching him scamper around. The video shows a little bit of the game's brushwork and a bit of combat. And then the cuteness gets amplified by an eager child riding Chibiterasu like a little pony.
I have to give props to Capcom for sticking with the Okami series despite failing to move copies of the original game on two different platforms. I just don't understand why this franchise is not hugely popular. It's one of the best Zelda-style titles on the market and yet it still managed to fail. Let's get the word out this time because I'd really like to see more of these games come to market.
