Podcast: Remakes, reboots and remasters

podcast-remakes-1

Welcome to the freshly relaunched RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show! You might think this is episode 31, but actually it’s episode 1 again. We’re rebooting it, even though we just did that last year. We’ve started by making it more accessible. Instead of three of us chatting about videogames between snippets of jaunty music, there’s just a sad man saying “Sonic the Hedgehog” over and over. We’re confident you’ll like it.

It’s easy to mock Capcom’s seemingly endless stream of reboots and re-releases, but if there’s one game in the publisher’s back catalogue that truly deserves to be reincarnated for the modern age, it’s Clover Studio’s Okami. While Clover itself has since faded into the mists of time (the remnants going on to form Bayonetta studio PlatinumGames), its ink-washed tale of Japanese sun gods and monstrous demons remains as bright and vibrant as ever, the last ten-odd years bouncing off wolf heroine Amaterasu’s gleaming fur almost as if they never happened.

The latest venerated console game to come our way is Okami, Clover Studio’s 2006 game about a sun goddess incarnated as a wolf to save the land from darkness with her magical ink brush, launched last night. Now named Okami HD, it’s not majorly rebuilt but it is a bit prettier and hey it’s on PC so good, great, wonderful.

Oh, and you’ll get a snazzy Dota 2 courier skin too. Read the rest of this entry »

Okami HD painted onto PC in December

Clover Studio’s Okami, a pretty 2006 game about Japanese sun goddess Amaterasu taking the form of a white wolf to save the world by painting magic, is finally getting a PC release. Capcom today announced Okami HD [official site], which will come to PC on December 12th – eleven years after its original release on PlayStation 2. Okami is one of those games everyone kept going on about back in the day, so it’ll be nice to see for myself. For now, here’s the announcement trailer: Read the rest of this entry »
