Okamiden Before the Spring

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , — Jamie Love @ 12:44 pm

Capcom revealed a few details about Chibiterasu’s arrival on North American DS’ today, specifically that the event will be taking place on March 15, 2011, and that the cost should run you about $29.99 USD.

There was also mention of a pre-order bonus via GameStop, which doesn’t seem nearly as grand as what Japan eventually got on top, but whatcha gonna do?

Actually what you can do, apparently, is loiter around the Okami Facebook page, where Capcom is mentioning fabulous prizes for those fans that drop by and play with the Goblin Mask Facebook app. The PR used words like “win a 3DS, a copy of the game, Chibiterasu plushies” – so maybe drop by there and see what’s up with all that, though one expects it may be a while before you can really win any of those things.

“Hideki, don’t abandon Amaterasu! :< Anyway, this was inspired by 101 Dalmatians believe it or not D: The beginning when Pongo was looking at the dogs pass by.. and then the part at the park :'D aww I love that movie hahah... ANYWAY.. Wanted to do something with Bayonetta in it.. but I didn't want to abandon Amaterasu..."

I don’t think I ever really grasped what made a great image of the day post when I was writing at 4cr, but even with this piece, a day doesn’t do justice to how uniquely cool and fresh the mash up comes across – even Capcom couldn’t resist posting about it today.

Thanks to Ujn Hunter for the tip!

Waiting For Okamiden

Sometimes I think about the long wait for Okamiden in North America, and I fret about all the accidents that could befall me during such a long expanse of time – it’s a dangerous world out there after all.

But in an attempt to ease my mind, I noticed that Okamiden screenshots practically beg to be comic panels with custom dialogue. I won’t suggest my first attempt is very creative, but you should totally give it a try, if only to eat up some of the wait.

In fact, I insist you give it a try, and send me the results!

Your Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Shocker

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , , — Jamie Love @ 8:46 am

Of all the things that could have happened over night, I certainly wouldn’t have guessed Capcom was gonna get Okami all up in their Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Of course, wolves don’t typically attack unless provoked, most often via dwindling food sources or someone getting too close to their young, so unless you get between Amaterasu and a ham sandwich or a copy of Okamiden, the confrontation may prove anti-climatic.

Judge for yourself after the break.

Okamiden’s Japanese Date

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , — Jamie Love @ 12:34 pm

Capcom’s updated the Japanese Okamiden site, which you can visit here, adding new details about bonus items, new wallpaper, and most importantly a release date of September 30, 2010 for the spiritual continuation of the series.

It’s definitely worth a visit – you can update your Okamiden art collection and watch some trailers before returning to wondering what portion of 2011 Capcom intends to leave the rest of us waiting for.
