The multiple award-winning Okami returns for a glorious encore on the Wii! Amaterasu, the wolf-embodied sun god must breathe color and life into a world made dismal by the tyrannical and destructive monster Orochi. Amaterasu travels through various regions of the world to regain Celestial Brush powers, all the while revitalizing all life. Featuring a re-imagined control scheme built around the intuitive Wii Remote, Okami for the Wii offers players an unparalleled level of control and an opportunity to rediscover a critically-acclaimed and beautifully crafted adventure.
Using the Wii Remote, players can directly manipulate the in-game Celestial Brush. Players utilize the brush to literally draw upon the game world, thereby altering its physical properties. Whether it's creating pathways, chopping down trees or turning night into day, Okami changes the world into a virtual canvas.
Featuring a visually stunning art style, Okami comes alive through beautiful scenic 3D levels that have the appearance and texture of paper scrolls brushed with watercolor-like calligraphy art. Throughout the vibrant and distinctive surroundings, interact with a dynamic cast of characters and build their faith to uncover clues and hints. The blend of stylized graphics and unique gameplay results in a rich and dynamic experience never seen before.
Innovative gameplay and control scheme optimized for the Wii - Defeating monsters requires both motion-controlled physical attacks, but also use of the Wii Remote as Amaterasu's 'Celestial Brush' to paint the desired powers for decimating enemies and solving puzzles.
