According to an advanced copy of Famitsu (via Sinobu and Tales Source), the PlayStation 3 game will be retitled "Okami Zekkie-ban" (or "Okami: Magnificent Edition" in English). This version of the game will not only have remastered HD graphics, but will also support full 1080p options on current televisions. The game will also have PlayStation Move controller support; players use the Move controller to activate celestial brush powers.

The remastered game will be out on November 1 and will be priced at ¥3,990 ($51). Gamers who buy the first print run of the title will get a code to download the digital version of Okami: A Caricature of Beasts, a Japanese book adaptation of the game's story.

North American and European versions will be out in digital form this fall for $19.99/£15.99/€19.99 in the respective territories. For more information on the PlayStation 2 version of the game, check out GameSpot's review.

UPDATE: Capcom has confirmed the release and pricing details for all regions and released an announcement trailer for the game, which is embedded below.
