Oh and the brush stroke with the Wii-mote is great, but also very very delicate. It found it hard to pick up the 'slice the rock in two' technique...so thats slightly worrying as well (cause it's a simple straight line...gulp.lol)

 

I read that holding C helps you draw straight lines.

Capcom replace Okami box art in US

 

Capcom are offering to replace the US Okami for Wii box art because it was shipped with the ign watermark. "If you purchased Okami for the Wii, for a limited time, you can choose from one of the three art pieces below and Capcom will ship a high-quality version of the box cover straight to your door." You can order your replacement here.

I can honestly say that my worst day at Capcom was this Monday. After releasing Okami for the Wii last week to some great reviews (Metacritic Average: 88), one of our Okami diehard fans discovered that the folks who work here at Capcom are, in fact, human and can make mistakes.

 

I’m speaking of the watermark that appeared on the cover of Okami. It’s sadly one of those things that’s hard to spot if you don’t know what your looking for, but the moment you see it, it becomes obvious and stares you in the face.

 

As fans know, the real art of Okami is on the Game Disc itself, but given the artistic nature of this game, we’d like the outside of the box to match the beauty contained within. To that end, we’re offering a free make-good gift to our fans. If you purchased Okami for the Wii, for a limited time, you can choose from one of the three art pieces below and Capcom will ship a high-quality version of the box cover straight to your door.

 

Each piece is sized to fit perfectly into your Okami Wii box and will transform your copy into the best-looking game on your shelf. Just head to http://www.capcom.com/artredemption/, fill out the form, and go back to playing Okami while you patiently wait for your new, improved art to make its way to you.

 

Thanks again for being a fan of both Capcom and Okami! Now get back to painting!

I got this! It's obviously brilliant (cause i have played the PS2 version) BUT i may have forgot something, or i'm doing something wrong...but the combat doesn't seem to work properly with the Wii-Mote?

 

I'm sure you can swing the round plate on your back as many times as possible, when you first play (and not have to upgrade anything) BUT it won't recognise a swing from the remote one after the other...it's like you can hit the enemy once and then you have to run around for a little while before being able to do it again...which is going to be a bloody nightmare later on in the game!

You need to time your swings, you can't swing randomly. Which is much better than the button mashing-fest it was before.

Also, is this a budget title? Would seem to be a good idea as it's a port.

It is in the US. $29.99 I believe, so around €18 for importers.

 

Edit - it's $39.99/€25.

Eh, when will this be out? Because I got a newsletter from Nintendo today with the new release list and general game info, and there was a link to the Okami page on the Nintendo website. The date there reads 28/03/2008...

From that link:

 

Le mois de juin sera chaud. Outre la sortie de Super Smash Bros Brawl le 27, Capcom vient d'officialiser la sortie européenne d'Okami, disponible depuis peu aux Etats-Unis et raflant excellente note sur excellente note. Cochez dès à présent le 13 juin sur votre agenda, la boîte sera disponible ce jour-là.

 

"The month of June is going to be hot. Okami was recently released in the US, receiving excellent review after excellent review and Capcom has just officially confirmed its release date for Europe. Other than the release of Brawl on the 27th, mark the 13th of June in your diary- the date when Okami will be available from in Europe."

According to Capcom's Sven whatsisname it sold less than 100k units, but it's within their expectations.

Already completed it once on PS2, but it cost almost half of the average Wii game so I thought I play through it once again since my PS2 doesn't work anymore and the save is long gone. Good game, but now without flaws. Think I rated it 9/10 back then.

So if its now without its flaws, you'd have to go one better and rate it as a perfect 10, right? :wink:

No, I rate them after how fun I have with them. Okami's flaws was annoying and destroyed some of the fun, like the superlong and incredibly boring boss battle that you have to fight a dozen time during the game and the sometime uninspiring and dull areas. And as far as I know, nothing has changed in the game except for Wii controls. But since I'm not rating games based on cons and pros, who knows, maybe the new controls will earn it one extra point.

Anyone played both versions? I didn't play much of the PS2 version but got the Wii version pre ordered.

Are the control issues specific to the Wii version or is it just that the brush strokes are difficult to get right in either versions?

I haven't played it on the Wii yet unfortunately but I'm unaware of any control issues; if anything I'd imagine the Remote makes using the Celestial Brush easier.

 

Speaking of US sales, here's what Mr Whatsisname said! :D
