    According to Kotaku Okami for the Wii has been confirmed! I have never actually played the game but I have only heard good things so I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

    Me too. I hope the controls will be as good as the remake of RE4! I never played the game, but it seems to be good.

    Capcom seem to be doing very well with the Wii controls so lets hope this on going rumour is true, should do a lot better than the PS2 game as us Nintendo fanboys know a good game when we see one.

    Guess I'll finally get to play this then. I wouldn't bother with a PS2 game these days (because my PS2 is wonky) unless it's something very special.

    Eurogamer is also confirming the release for the Wii. I have this game for PS2 but I haven't played it yet. I might wait for this Wii version if it turns out that the Wii controls suit it better.

    I never had a PS2 so I was thinking about get a PS3, so I could play PS3 games and also the PS2 classics..

    But if things keep going that way.. a Wii will be enough for that [​IMG]

    It's true, they went bankrupt. PS2 owners didn't support Okami at all, it was a flop. let's hope Wii owners treat this classic better.

    I'm sure it was after making God Hand that they closed up. Anyways, if this is just going to be a port of the PS2 version, it wouldn't need the original Clover Studio to port it. Kinda makes me glad I didn't get past the tutorial on the PS2 version so I can at least try and finish it this time.

    Played and completed it, an extremely enjoyable game but it just didn't feel right playing it on a Sony console.

    Ah, this is good news to me. I've wanted to play that pretty game since I saw the first videos, but I lack a PS2. [​IMG]

    See that hole in your wall?
    I loved the PS2 version. I will gladly buy this one, even if it's a remake.
    This is good news for my buddy too. He's wanted to play it but doesn't have a PS2, but does have a Wii.

    Okami was a great game so it's great that more people will get to play it now.

    Should have some good uses for the Wiimote to.

    Excellent [​IMG] Haven't gotten around to playing it so this is good news.

    I've heard it's a bit like Zelda?

    See that hole in your wall?
    Yes. Somewhat.
    It's an action adventure. Has a lot of Zelda-like upgrades (hearts, more inkpots, bigger wallet, etc). Has several dungeons that play like Zelda. Lots of side quests.

    However one thing that's different is the combat. I really don't know how to explain it well, so here's a youtube video:


    As you can see, you usually fight in a small arena type area. From the world map you enter one of these arenas by running into a tall, floating demon scroll, that chase you some times. Or by entering a demon gate like shown at the beginning of the video. Sometimes a story event triggers the battle too. At the end of the fight you get a ranking based on your speed and damage done. Doing the faster and harder you put down your enemies, the more bonus cash you'll receive.

    However, the boss battles are much more Zelda-like, whereas your arena is in a much larger dungeon room, using your powers in certain ways that allow you access the boss's weak spot to do the real damage.
