ÅŒkami is one of the best games you’ve probably never played. Developed by Capcom’s ill-fated Clover Studio for the PS2, and more recently ported to the Wii, it’s an action adventure that rivals – and in many ways exceeds – the best from the Legend of Zelda series.
While critically acclaimed, sales of the game were so poor that chances of a sequel were pretty slim. The game even earned a dubious Guinness record, as "least commercially successful winner of a game of the year award.â€ Thankfully somebody at Capcom decided to give the series another chance – resulting in ÅŒkamiden, a Nintendo DS-bound sequel. Those who’ve played the original would know that the stylus-equipped DS may be the perfect home for the game.
If you’ve never played ÅŒkami, do yourself a favour and pick it up – so you can join me in anticipation for the sequel.
