Capcom has announced Okami HD will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 13 in Japan. It will be available in Europe and the US on December 12. It will be available digitally for all formats for £15.99/€19.99/$19.99. Physical versions for PS4 will also be available.

Rooted in Japanese folklore, Okami has you taking the on the role of Amaterasu, the sun goddess, as she embodies the legendary white wolf Shiranui. Your wolf part can tackle, and use a number of different weapons—you’re a legendary wolf after all—while your goddess side brings to the table divine powers of the Celestial Brush, a powerful way to breathe new life to the world around you.

Okami was originally released for PS2 in 2006, developed by Clover Studio, a now-defunct subsidiary of Capcom that also produced the Viewtiful Joe series. Okami garnered universal acclaim thanks to its beautiful visuals, which were inspired by traditional Japanese sumi-e paintings, and its Zelda-like gameplay. A Wii version was released in 2008 and added motion controls for the game’s Celestial Brush system, while an HD port for PS3 arrived in 2012. The game’s only sequel, Okamiden, released for DS in 2011.

Capcom has said that it will be releasing more HD remasters as “one of [its] key business activities” going forward.
