Pre order Okami for Nintendo Wii

For anyone who has had the pleasure of playing the Playstation 2 version, this game is going to be a must-have.

The release date is a bit confusing with Amazon.co.uk saying 6th June 2008 and Game.co.uk saying the 1st July 2008. I’ve looked on the official site and it’s still none the clearer. Whatever the date will be, I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

It may not be a game that will blaze a trail to the top of the Wii charts, but it is going to be visually stunning and with the Wii remote, instantly playable.

A preview to the game has been written by the Official Nintendo Magazine UK, click on the link at the bottom to read it.

So what’s the game all about?

Okami is all based around Japanese folklore and mythology.

You play as the wolf incarnation of the Japanese sun god, Ameratsu. By channeling your divine power through the mighty celestial paintbrush to restore beauty and order to a bleak world overrun by evil. The paintbrush is of course wielded in the form of the Wii Remote. This allows you to defeat monsters by both motion-controlled physical attacks, to paint the desired powers for decimating enemies and solving puzzles.

You are literally able to pause time and paint on the screen. This will enable you to repair a bridge you need to cross, bring trees back to life or use your powers to slice enemies in half and set fields on fire.

Absolutely fantastic!!! With water-colour type backgrounds in the Japanese style it looks fantastic.

Preorders are currently only being taken from Amazon.co.uk and Game.co.uk now. Click on the links from your preferred retailer.
