Okami

Clover Studio’s Okami is one of the last generation’s most beautiful games – and is a better “Zelda” game than most actual Legend of Zelda games. If you haven’t played it, it’s free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, and it’s also available on the Wii. If you have, you might be delighted to know that a sequel could be on its way.

In a very Nipponese tweet (via IGN) from the official Okami account (there’s an official Okami account?), the following message revealed that there’d be some Okami news on the way.

“Hello, this is Okami news. Sorry I’ve been kind of out of touch lately, but I have the feeling we’ll be able to drop a fresh announcement like WHAM! around the beginning of Golden Week, so please look forward to it. Right now we’re on track with preparations.”

Golden Week is a Japanese holiday that takes place between April 29 and May 5 – so we’ll find out pretty soon. Okami received a Nintendo-DS bound indirect sequel in the delightful charming Okamiden in 2010, but beyond the PS3 HD remaster, there’s been little news about everyone’s favourite celestial god wolf.

It would kinda be a perfect fit for the Wii U.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
