Okami Price Slashed at Capcom Store
Posted by Christopher Clark
Twice the Zelda for half the price!
Capcom's epic action-adventure game Okami has received a significant price-cut on Capcom US' online store.
Developed by Clover Studios (God Hand, Viewtiful Joe) Okami combines Zelda-esque action-adventure game-play with the style and setting of classic Japanese mythology. Using the Celesital Brush, players can draw symbols and objects on the screen via the Wiimote to solve puzzles, attack foes and manipulate the world around them. Best of all, no Navi!
Despite being one of the Wii's best third-party offerings (and, in this writer's opinion, a greater experience than the real thing) Okami has sold less than 200,000 copies in the US to date. With the price halved to just $20USD, North American gamers now have little excuse for not picking up this neglected gem for their Wii (or their Playstation 2, if they so prefer). Go forth and purchase, lest ye should be cursed with the burden of shovelling Ubisoft titles onto department store shelves for all eternity.
