Okami is a game with a number of awards
Unfortunately, sales of games are not as sweet as the responses given by the media and gamers who have played the game. The game has been re-released many times to various platforms, but until now the game has only obtained the status of classic cult and the possibility of a sequel is very small. But the hope of the second game does not just die.
With the majority of people behind Clover Studios now at the Platinum Games including with Hideki Kamiya, the opportunity for the Okami 2 project has reopened especially with the arrival of Ikumi Nakamura.
Ikumi Nakamura is the artist behind the visual beauty of the first Okami. He also stole a lot of gamers’ attention this year because of his innocent and cute presentation at this year’s Bethesda E3 conference which took place a few months ago.
Shortly after announcing Ghostwire: Tokyo, Ikumi announced that he had separated from Tango Softwork because he wanted to find a new opportunity.
Through his Twitter, Ikumi revealed that he is now involved in the Okami sequel project with Kamiya. Seeing Capcom recently announced that they want to revive dormant game series, the Okami sequel project is increasingly open.
Kamiya had actually wanted to develop the sequel from Okami for a long time, but because of his busy handling Bayonetta and Wonderful 101 at that time, according to a report from DidYouKnowGaming, his dream project continued to fail.
Platinum Games has just finished releasing Astral Chain and is currently busy developing Bayonetta 3 and Babylon’s Fall, so the Okami 2 project might still be too long to be officially announced.
Even though fans should be happy to have just received good news directly from the developer and designer, feelings of doubt still haunt them. Hideki Kamiya is known as a figure who often jokes and often “trolls” his own fans, so the announcement of the Okami sequel is still difficult to swallow raw for fear of being disappointed to be lied to again. To find out the certainty of this project, fans only need to wait a few years to come.
