Capcom's adventure game wins top prize at Japan Media Arts Plaza awards; DS cookbook also recognized with award.
Early 2007 continues to be a time of recognition of all things 2006, as the results from awards shows continue to pile in. The latest comes from Japan Media Arts Plaza, an online hub of "creative activities and development of media arts."
On its Web site, the association recently announced its awards for 2006, which recognize achievements in "creative media art works" using technology.
Taking the grand prize in the entertainment division was artist Hideki Kamiyama for his work on Capcom's Okami. According to the judges, the award was given for its "beautiful graphics and distinct style of presentation."
Other games recognized in the entertainment division include the Nintendo DS game Shaberu! DS Oryouri Navi (Talking DS Cooking Navigator) and Rhythm Tengoku for the Game Boy Advance. Previous winners of the festival's awards include Nintendogs, WarioWare: Twisted, Pictochat, Onimusha 3, and EyeToy Play.
They totally made the right choice, this game is very illusionistic and art award is defenitely an award it deserves. Also should be recognized for originality as it's concept is one of a kind.
Yay Rhythm Tengoku. Here is hoping they translate that game to English some time, its well worth playing.
We must accept it, this game really has something, despite de fact that its just a well drawn cartoon, its worth the time and money that you expend in it. So I agree without any argument with this recognition.
Okami deserves it. I'm playing it now and it is easily the best game I have played in a very long time.
All right, Clover! (Or maybe I should say Seeds....) The graphics were terrific - Okami is the most uniquely styled game I've seen in a long, long time. Congratulations, guys!
"critial darlin" is a word that gets passed around a lot for Okami. I do think it's a big honor especially coming from Japan since Okami is a love letter to everything japan but the game just failed in sales in Japan. I hope this encourages more japanese audiences to take a chance with okami
"This game is sold out everywhere where I live. I want it so badly. Glad to hear its being recognised." Really? Bout' time Okami gets some respect... even if it took them long enough ????
Okami wasnt a huge success in japan or in the states which is sad because games like these come only once in a decade.
This game is sold out everywhere where I live. I want it so badly. Glad to hear its being recognised.
Finally, some recognition for Okami, and as per everyone else's comments, well deserved. Also good to see Rhythm Tengoku up there, it's a brilliant game.
