Set in an unspecified period of classical Japanese history, Okami combines several Japanese myths, legends and folklore to tell the story of how the land was saved from darkness by the Shinto sun goddess, Amaterasu, who has taken the form of a white wolf.
With her Celestial Brush, Amaterasu paints on the screen,
solving puzzles and battling the evil Orochi.

Considered one of the most visually stunning games of all time, the game environment is set in a woodcut, water-color style, cel-shaded environment, which looks like an animated sumi-e illustration.  This amazing game has finally arrived on the Nintendo Wii!  To find out more information please visit the official Okami site.

You know you've been waiting for this!  The multiple-award winning game Okami is coming to the Nintendo Wii, and Capcom and deviantART have teamed up to give you a chance to take the Celestial Brush to the next level and show your Okami love!  

Want to be inspired?  Check out the over 300 illustrations and fan art gallery at the Art of Okami.

No, it is Ookami.

But it can be spelled Okami as long as there is a line over the o. In Japanese it's a double o sound/spelling.

In what aspects is it harder? :o

Alot of people complain that the brush work is harder on the wii. but it isnt really, it allows alot of freedeom , and alot less finger/thumb cramps xD
