TGS 2009: Hands-on: Okamiden

I've waited in long lines for two things at TGS: the Level-5 demo session, which has been packed since the first minutes of the show, and Okamiden, which required more standing around than I expected. How can the sequel to a game that is regarded as a sales failure, developed by someone else, be...

Japanese gamers want Persona 4, Phoenix Wright anime series (and so do we)

Japanese gaming pub Dengenki recently polled its readers on what series they'd like to see translated into anime form. The Top 10 list looks nearly exactly the same as our own wishlist: 1. Persona 4 2. Phoenix Wright 3. Okami 4. Kingdom Hearts 5. Idol Master 6. Metal Gear Solid 7....

Okamiden screens are predictably cute

At this point, Capcom's Okamiden is succeeding with its two-pronged attack of nice graphics and adorable baby wolves. Looking at these screens, we feel only vestiges of the outrage we once felt about the idea of continuing Clover's work in the developer's absence. Instead, the feeling of wanting to...

Finally, a real Okamiden trailer

Following last week's heartbreakingly brief teaser video, Capcom has released a new, more satisfying trailer for Okamiden.

First Okamiden footage: it's Okami, but smaller

As part of a "Tokyo Game Show Click Theater" showing off its TGS lineup, Capcom released a brief teaser for the DS Okami followup, Okamiden. The gameplay footage looks slightly choppy, and the textures are slightly rough, but the game is unmistakably Okami and looks pretty impressive for a DS game....

Okamiden's new protagonist: Chibiterasu the lil' wolf

1UP has summarized the Famitsu article about Okamiden (which, yes, means it's real). The DS sequel, produced by Ace Attorney Investigations' Motohide Eshiro and directed by Dino Crisis series staffer Kuniomi Matsushita, takes place a few months after the end of Okami, at which point demons return...

Rumor: Famitsu scans show DS Okami sequel 'Okamiden'

Apparent Famitsu magazine scans are out, revealing what would appear to be the promised "Okamiden" game. We can't see the title in this scan, but if an Okami sequel and an unrelated game called Okamiden were revealed at the same time, it would be a pretty weird coincidence. If this is real, it shows...

Capcom rewards patient Okami buyers with Amaterasu phone strap

Someone in Japan has been waiting years for the Wii release of Okami, having let the PS2 release pass in 2006, and then watching the Wii port release everywhere but Japan in 2008. That hypothetical person's patience will be rewarded on October 15, when e-Capcom orders of the Japanese Wii version of...

Have a brush with Okami for $25

More lovely Okami art here. Here's a bargain you should wolf down with a quickness: GameStop is currently selling Okami for the low, low price of $24.99. We're a tad late to this one (we are reliably informed it's been at this price for a few days, so you should definitely tell us this in the...
