During the latest Nintendo Direct video today, the company announced that Capcom’s remastered version of Okami HD will be coming to the Nintendo Switch this summer. While an official date wasn’t attached to it, Capcom was quick to release their own press release about the game headed to the console. Below is a snippet from the press release going over the game and the features coming to the Switch version.
Ōkami HD, one of the most visually breathtaking action video games ever made, is coming to Nintendo Switch with high definition graphics updated for modern HD televisions. Originally released in 2006, Ōkami brought the Japanese Sumi-e ink style art to video games, marrying art with action and an epic tale, making it one of the most unique and beautiful video games ever. Ōkami HD will be available as a digital download for Nintendo Switch this summer.
In the game, players draw brushstrokes on screen with the Celestial Brush to battle opponents or solve puzzles. Unique to Nintendo Switch, Ōkami HD will offer new functionality for the Celestial Brush, taking advantage of the Nintendo Switch system’s touchscreen and motion-control support to create intuitive new ways to solve puzzles and defeat foes. These artistic touches include:
- Touchscreen Painting – Create brushstrokes directly on the touchscreen in Handheld mode
- Motion-Control Painting – Paint with the Joy-Con™ controller’s motion controls in TV or Tabletop mode by moving it in the desired pattern, just like a paintbrush
