Okami is a excellent game, and 1 of the PS2-era Capcom classics that cemented the reputation of Clover Studio – whose employees went on to type Platinum Games. Now, director Hideki Kamiya says “Okami is going to be back” – but this is not the 1st time we’ve introduced him as a ‘Twitter troll’ in a headline, and whilst this is extra most likely than Mortal Kombat x Bayonetta, you should really nonetheless take it with a grain of salt.
Kamiya seems alongside Ikumi Nakamura – whose 1st game business credit was on Okami, but is now most recognisable as the former director of Tango Gameworks’ GhostWire: Tokyo – in a Twitter video. Kamiya offers a thumbs-up whilst announcing Okami’s return. Nakamura asks “really?” Kamiya confirms: “really.” Nakamura says “oh” and leaves frame. Absolutely everyone laughs.
Although the apparent ‘confirmation’ of a new Okami possibly is not completely critical, it appears the developers’ need to make it is. In the tweet itself, Nakamura says “we want to make Okami sequel and fans are searching forward to it also. You guys want to see Kamiya’s Okami once more, appropriate, everybody? I want to perform on it also!”
The timing is undoubtedly curious, as Capcom announced it has plans to revive dormant IPs in its most recent monetary report. Although Okami did get a semi-sequel on Nintendo DS quite a few years ago – Okamiden – a appropriate Okami two would undoubtedly count as just such a revival.
Word is that there have been talks with Capcom about reviving Okami back in 2015, but they fizzled out amid internal disagreements with Platinum president Tatsuya Minami – who has considering the fact that left the firm.
We will not be adding Okami two to our list of upcoming Computer games any time quickly, but you can at least rest straightforward in the information that the people today who produced the original want it back, also.
