Now scheduled to arrive on April 15th, Okami first appeared on PS2 in 2006. Its heavy use of a play mechanic called the Celestial Brush, which saw gamers draw on the screen, made it an ideal candidate for a move on to Nintendo’s motion sensitive console.
The Wii version, unlike its PS2 predecessor, will support a widescreen 16:9 display and progressive scan. The port is being handled by Ready at Dawn, the studio that recently finished up work on Sony’s PSP outing God of War: Chains of Olympus.
Currently there is no European release date for Okami on Wii.
