More Details About New Okami Game

The full title for upcoming DS Okami game is Okamiden: Chisaki Taiyou, and the title takes place a few months after the PlayStation 2 original and features a new wolf named Chibiterasu.

Gameplay is similar to the PS2 version where players will draw out characters with the in-game brush. However, the DS title will obviously use the Touch Pen.

The original Okami designer Hideki Kamiya is not involved with the title as he has left Capcom. Instead, the title is being produced by Ace Attorney Investigations producer Motohide Eshiro and directed by Kuniomi Matsushita, who directed the Wii port of Okami. According to Matsushita, the reason why the game is on the DS is that Capcom wants more people to experience the world of Okami.

The title is currently 25 percent finished and expected for release in 2010.
