If you're a fan of Okami, you might recall how a member of the original development team - Ikumi Nakamura - teased its possible return last year and even roped in PlatinumGames' Hideki Kamiya, who of course served as the director.

Now, in a recent interview with IGN Japan, she has revealed her plan is to pitch a new Okami title to Capcom once life returns to normal across the globe. As long as she "goes after it" she believes there's a good chance of Capcom greenlighting a sequel.

While Nakamura says she wouldn't be particularly worried about the role she's assigned, she insists on the return of Kamiya - who is currently working on Bayonetta 3 and Project GG - a spiritual follow-up to Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101.

This time last year, Nakamura was one of the many people who jumped on stage at E3 to talk about an upcoming release. Later on, in the same year, she announced she would be leaving her role as a creative director and art director at Tango Gameworks (GhostWire: Tokyo) to pursue other projects.
