I cannot tell you how much I treasured Okami. That there apparently won't be a sequel (at least on the home consoles) is a stinging disappointment. This looks good. Between this and Prof Layton I don't see how I won't be buying a DS in the next year or so.
Awesome. I actually didn't even discover Okami until last December (thanks to the folks on GS here). Good to see more on the way. :)
@ just_nonplussed: "...it looks very similar to the first okami...." Which in and of itself is amazing on DS. ;)
it's cool that okami is coming to the DS (something of a natural home for the game), but i wouldn't say it looks 'amazing'... it looks very similar to the first okami. i reckon it's going to be a slightly watered-down, souped-up remix edition of the original. mechanically it reminds me of phantom hourglass.
My GOD! Can't believe how adorable to new hero's going to be, I just can't help but want to hug the adorable thing! X3 Though in all honesty, I really didn't expect the gameplay visuals to have been captured so perfectly onto the DS. I thought it would have suffered from at least minor technical issues, but I guess this is just another Phantom Hourglass to impress me yet again. Can't wait for this to be released!
Goodness. No matter how many times I look at that picture, I squeal at its adorable-ness. The trailer looks so much like the original PS2 title, so I'm impressed. I've got to finish up the game first though.
