Or maybe it is where you would expect, since everything seems to make its way there eventually. I wonder how it is going to turn out, considering the Okami team pretty much left Capcom (to form Platinum Studios.)
- Full title: Okamiden: Chisaki Taiyou - new wolf: Chibiterasu - events take place a few months after the end of Okami - Issun is accompanying Chibiterasu to meet up with Sakuya, as Sakuya wants to ask Chibiterasu for help - combat system similar to the original Okami - draw lines to slash enemies, circle trees to make them grow/bloom - partner characters for Chibiterasu to work with - partner will both aid and hinder you, bringing up puzzles that you have to solve in order for you and your partner to progress - one partner revealed: Kuninushi, son of the swordsman Susano - learn why Susano has a son, when he didn't a few months ago - producer: Motohide Eshiro - director: Kuniomi Matsushita - Matsushita wanted to make a portable Okami, so he made a prototype and showed it to Eshiro. When Eshiro saw the prototype, the team decided to move forward - Matsushita wants to go portable with Okami in the hopes of getting a bigger audience to experience what the world of Okami is all about - due out 2010 in Japan
Looks and sounds good to me. Though I wish it was a console sequel.
Man, the DS is nearly 5 years old and it still has a great list of big hitters coming... Mario & Luigi 3, Scribblenauts, Zelda Spirit Tracks, Golden Sun, Chibi-Robo, Okami, and I know I'm forgetting some others.
