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.

cool! this is easily one of my fav's, and I never had a chance to finish it when I had it. A must have; and I agree, it's possibly better then Zelda:TP itself, with it's style and cool interface. Win-Win.

I was a good little boy and picked this up a year ago. Everyone else; you have no excuse, snag this now!

I agree; If you haven't bought this gem of a game yet, now's the time! It's such a great mix of gameplay / art style. Very much recommended.

@Ren: Okami IS better than TP. Once you play Okami, TP's wolf is the most awful thing ever >_>

However, I could never choose between Wind Waker and Okami =P

The Wolf Link segments of TP felt like a knockoff of Okami. If you asked me, I would have to say Okami is a bit better than TP, due to it's more appealing art style and more unique gameplay. Though both are great.

@Chunky_Droid. I'm actually considering doing that. I'm pretty far in the PS2 game, but I haven't been able to play my PS2 in months, and I'm DYING to get back to it. Plus, the Celestial Brush is better fitting to the Wii's controls anyway.
