PlayStation 2 classic Okami is getting a high definition release exclusively on PlayStation 3, Capcom has announced.

Okami HD has the player take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster, Orochi, turns the world into a ruined, colourless wasteland, Amaterasu must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory and defeat the demon in charge of the destruction.

In addition to high definition visuals – you can see how much better it looks in the video below – the game also boasts PlayStation Move support for painting with the Celestial Brush, although a regular controller can also be used as in the PS2 game.

There are also 51 trophies to earn.

Okami HD will be released this autumn via the PlayStation Store priced £15.99.

What I can't comprehend is how these HD re-releases are PS3 exclusives. Why the hell aren't they on Vita?! This, the Ratchet & Clank trilogy, Prince of Persia HD collection, God of War, etc.. Sony knew the Vita was incoming, they spent the money to get these games as exclusives, but they didn't demand a Vita port in the contract. What the hell were they thinking?

I can only guess that there is some PS2 news to be announced at some future date. If not? Fools.

I spent around 20-25 minutes in the original release, and was bored witless...

I rather liked this game... to a point and then it continued for another 20 hours or so.

Cool, now we can all remember how not-actually-that-good it was, but in HD!
