From Capcom's Clover studios, the team behind Viewtiful Joe 2
, comes a 3-D cell shaded action adventure in the world of feudal Japan. Ōkami
tells the tale of a wolf-goddess named Amaterasu who must prevent an evil being known as Orochi from taking over the beautiful world of feudal Japan. Ōkami takes the already well established cell shading technique and turns it into a traditional Hokusai-style Japanese woodblock print visual.
To give the player a sense of being in a painting, Amaterasu is given a paint brush in which the player can cut enemies down with, create bridges or wind, and restore the forest to its natural beauty. With each defeated enemy, color returns and the natural life force slowly regenerates. While playing, players call up a canvas where they can draw with the celestial brush. New abilities and techniques are acquired as you progress.
Ōkami is filled with large worlds and dungeons to explore on your quest to restore the lush trees and wildlife to their former glory. Many monsters and large epic boss battles come between Amaterasu and her goal. To fulfill her objective there will be many people along the way that will help her if she helps them.

The Press Says
The front keep case cover of the US Wii release contains a watermark of games website IGN. It is faintly visible to the right of Amaterasu's mouth. Apparently the designer used concept art from the IGN website to compose the background picture, rather than the original image. At the end of April 2008, Capcom offered a solution. Players with the faulty cover could visit Capcom's Art Redemption
website to apply for a replacement cover (US and Canada only). Multiple options were offered, the original cover or two new pieces of artwork. The new covers eventually shipped near the end of August.
