Gorgeous cult hit Okami gets an HD upgrade on PlayStation 3 this Autumn, Capcom has announced.
Okami's impending DS sequel may not be the last we see of Capcom's cult lupine adventure franchise. According to the game's producer, Japanese sales are healthy and the door is open for future follow-ups.
Speaking in an interview with GamesRadar, Okamiden producer Motohide Eshiro said that Capcom would be delighted to make a sequel if enough fans demanded it.
"The game's been out in Japan for a little while, and we're pleased with the reviews – users seem to be very happy – and sales are healthy," he explained.
Critically acclaimed 2006 action adventure Okami flopped because gamers were too entranced by excitement generated by new consoles.
That's the assessment of Capcom producer Motohide Eshiro, who told Official Nintendo Magazine the Clover Studio classic suffered under the weight of announcements by Nintendo and Sony.
"I can't comment officially but, personally speaking, I think it had a lot to do with the announcements for new consoles," Eshiro said.
The full name for Okami DS will be Okamiden: Chisaki Taiyou, and the game takes place a few months after the PS2 original.
Capcom is working on a DS version of outstanding action-adventure game Okami.
Andriasang reports that next week's issue of Japanese games magazine Famitsu will feature a game called Okamiden - a recent Capcom trademark, rumoured to be a sequel to the gorgeous PS2 and Wii adventure, Okami.
Capcom needs to sell lots more copies of Okami before it will contemplate a sequel, according to VP of strategic planning Christian Svensson.
"I think we need a lot more people buying the current version before we seriously consider a sequel," Svensson told the Capcom-Unity forum.
Asked about worldwide sales of Okami (and Wii title Zack & Wiki), he added: "Alas, unless our investor relations team gives out the numbers, I can't do so. And in both cases, they haven't."

Confirmation comes by way of the Capcom Store, which listed the sought-after 16:9 and 480p additions on the product specifications for the game. The PS2 original did not support these video modes.
The website also says that the title will be available in the US in March, a date Capcom bigwig Christian Svensson said was "possible" last week.

Capcom has finally confirmed persistent rumours that Okami is coming to Nintendo Wii, telling a London audience this week that the game will arrive on our screens in spring 2008.
Celebrated on PS2 for its absorbing puzzle and action adventure mechanics, gripping narrative inspired by Japanese folklore and beautiful watercolour visuals, its rebirth on Wii has been much hyped.
The game also lends itself rather well to the potential of Nintendo's Wiimote for control. Amaterasu's Celestial Brush - a paintbrush used in combat and for solving puzzles - is a perfect fit for the Wiimote, and so it proves, while combat will also include various "motion-controlled physical attacks".
Those of you eagerly awaiting Okami's 9th February release date will be slightly cheesed-off to hear us Europeans will receive exactly the same game as the US were treated to back in September.
Capcom is to close its Clover Studio in March 2007 in an effort to increase efficiency.
