and Capcom is porting PS2 gem Okami
to the Wii, now it's time for some details. 1UP reports that Ready at Dawn, developers of the depressingly pseudo-delayed God of War: Chains of Olympus
, will handle the porting. Capcom was looking for a developer to port Okami
to the Wii last year as "the PS2 release suffered from shipping amidst the flurry of next-generation consoles." At GDC '07
execs from Ready at Dawn expressed their admiration for the game to Capcom's senior director of research and strategic planning -- they got the offer within a week.
There's no word if additional content will be created for the Wii version; Capcom says that all depends if Ready at Dawn gets the primary game finished in time (they can use extra time to add stuff). Okami
is expected in the first half of '08.
