'Ōkami HD' launches on Switch

'Ōkami HD' launches on Switch CAPCOM

Capcom's visually striking action game, Ōkami HD, is now available for Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo eShop.

The game was originally released in 2006 on PlayStation 2 and tells an epic tale while blending its Sumi-e ink art style with puzzle solving and action.

Says Capcom:

Journey with Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who embodies a legendary white wolf to dispel evil from the beautiful lands of Nippon. To do so, she must traverse harsh lands and tackle foes using a combination of magic abilities, clever attacks, an arsenal of divine items and the Celestial Brush, a magical object capable of manipulating the environment. A cast of colourful allies join Amaterasu on her mythical adventure to defeat foes and rid the land of its evil curse.

On Nintendo Switch, Ōkami HD offers new functionality for the Celestial Brush that takes advantage of the hardware features.  This includes using the touchscreen in handheld mode to paint brushstrokes by hand and the ability for motion controll painting by using the Switch's Joy-Con controllers in TV or tabetop mode.

Ōkami HD is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
