The game originally praised for its gorgeous Sumi-e style graphics has had its spirit boosted with heavenly HD graphics, PlayStation®Move support and PlayStation®3 system trophies.

With Ōkami™ HD, players can take advantage of the PlayStation Move motion controller and naturally make brush strokes with the Celestial Brush to defeat enemies and solve puzzles. Ōkami HD will also support the DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller for those who wish to re-live the original experience.

Initially released to critical acclaim on the PlayStation®2 system, players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess, who inhabits the form of a wolf. After a tyrannical monster turns the world into a ruined wasteland, she must use her magical abilities to restore the land to its previous glory full of life and color.
