It has been confirmed that Okami is getting the HD treatment for the PlayStation 3, boasting 1080p graphics and PlayStation Move support. The HD re-release is set for a November 1 release date in Japan1 and is confirmed for the US and Europe this Autumn.
Okami was originally released for the PlayStation 2 and was developed by Clover Studio and was a commercial failure despite critical success. The game combined a number of Japanese myths and legends with a unique cel-shaded art look and a gesture-controlled brush. It has since been re-released on the Wii with motion controls and also had a sequel, Okamiden for the Nintendo DS.
