About The Game
Experience this acclaimed masterpiece with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style in breath-taking high resolution.
Take the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui. Use magical abilities, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and colour.
Not only can you play in both widescreen and and the original 4:3 aspect ratio, you can now use the Joy-Con (in TV mode/tabletop mode) or touch screen (in portable mode) for intuitive, direct Celestial Brush controls.
This is a great game, absolutely fabulous and worthy of any collection. The Switch should be the ultimate platform as it feels great when playing in handheld. But IMO there are two points that bar the game from the perfect score:
1. Some story-driven dialogues can’t be forwarded and take too long. They can be skipped completely, but the fixed pace is very slow.
2. The audio is sadly too compressed. The soundtrack is stunning but if you have a decent stereo setup or high-quality headphones, the artifacts from the encoded and compressed audio are far too audible to ignore. This is such a bummer that I would recommend the PS3 version over this one.
I want! Don't know why I never thought of getting this on Switch.
