The original designers of Okami want to make a sequel

Ikumi Nakamura proclaimed she wants to work on a sequel to Okami on Twitter, posting a video of herself with Okami director Hideki Kamiya. Although Kamiya reassures her, it seems like this Tweet is more of a temperature take on how fans would react to an Okami sequel, especially if you consider the praying hands emoji and the sly tagging of Capcom, who owns the rights to the Okami franchise. And let's face it, Capcom would be remiss to pass up a new instalment in Amaterasu's Zelda-like adventures. Both Capcom and the official Okami accounts are mentioned at the end of the tweet. There's a certain playfulness to the video clip, mind you, but if words are to be believed, then "Ōkami is going to be back". Okami was directed by Hideki Kamiya at Capcom. "Really?" asks Nakamura. To which Kamiya replies, "Really". I don't understand budgets and politics. Japanese text at the end of the tweet reads, "We want to make Okami again". "Okami is one of those that have the power to overcome all of that".

Okamiden is the spiritual successor to the classic action role-playing game Okami, but it was exclusive to the Nintendo DS.

In our original review, we scored it an "Amazing" 9.1, saying "Okami is a game we've been waiting on for a long, long time, and for the most part it has lived up to our extremely high expectations".
