    Man, I thought the English one had good boxart, outside of the hidden IGN logo, but this one is amazing. Damn you, Japan and you're good coverart!

    Man, I got pretty well into this game and then it got shelved because of either other games or because we were moving to a new state. I should pick the game back up. Too bad I can't use the Japanese controls, those do look more intuitive and responsive (dodging with the 'chuck is worthless).

    Wait so I don't get it. Is this a new release for Japan? Or is it like one of those.. v1.1, v1.2 kind of thing? Does that mean the Japanese Okami brush is more responsive? I'd love to play the series with a more responsive brush.

    It's a new release. Okami for Wii just came out in Japan on October 15.

    Capcom's never made a lot of money on any version of Okami.

    Too bad US version didn't get the Japanese controls, I played one hour and gave up on the Wii version.
    Compared to the PS2 version we can't fast-attack anymore, we need to wait 1/2sec between each Wiimote shaking or else the wolf stop attacking at all, that's really annoying.
    I recommend PS2 over Wii version to friends of mine.

    I actually thought this was a weeaboo game made in America and pretending to be Japanese when I played it.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not the controls are more accurate/responsive?
