Capcom has announced that the Nintendo Switch version of classic action role-playing game Okami will launch on August 9.

Originally released back in 2006 for PlayStation 2, Okami was developed by Clover Studios, a now-defunct Capcom subsidiary featuring veteran game developers including Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya and Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami.

Okami features a bunch of new additions for its Switch debut, including prettier visuals and both touch screen/motion controls. It's still the same that you remember otherwise, which is no bad thing at all; Okami still holds up 12 years on, and if you haven't played it yet now is a perfect time to start.

Capcom has re-released Okami numerous times over the years, most recently in high-definition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last December.

A Nintendo DS-only sequel, Okamiden, was released in the US and Europe back in 2011.
