since the premise of the game span generations of character trying to beat demon, are all the character pretty much randomly generated character? no important named main character or something like that in the story?

Yoshida has said that he wants it to be localized. And when the trailer was released he even tweeted the name in English along with Japanese.

The original was like that, yeah. The character portraits had randomly assigned skin/hair/eye color and the only characterization they received were their dying words.

Liking those 4gamer shots. Still not a fan of the look of the characters, but I had the same issue with the PSX and PSP versions. Would buy if localized.

yea this game look really good, but also look like it's way too hardcore for me. I prefer jrpg with story and characters, even SMT4 that is also a very hardcore rpg where you built your own demon party has some story that I can follow.

some are a bit too dead-eyed for my taste, but i suppose that's how it goes with 3d animes.

he got plenty of time to bring the remake to the west but he didn't, getting the sequel without the original don't seems that much likely to me.

yeah i'm just pleased that the monsters clearly had all the attention paid to them as usual, can't wait to see what they look like in motion.

also three year belated thank you for the talking time thread that introduced me to this franchise! Been pining to play one of these for years now haha.

Just to clarify. Do you think okami's art style is unique to it?

As someone mentioned isn't the point of the game to keep popping out kids to fight demons? So it makes sense.

Am I the only one who liked the goals of this style more than the UniArt engine games (minus maybe Rayman)?

I'm glad it looks similar to the Intro animation; I'd love to see a next-gen game that looks JUST like that animation.

This here looks quite charming, though; hope it looks just as good in motion! We REALLY need this in English...

That was also released really late in the PSP's life cycle, especially for the west. It's not too surprising that nothing happened with it in terms of localization. He's already said that he wants this to be released here. Throw in the fact that Shahid was looking for JRPG suggestions earlier this year and Sony once again saw JRPG interest during the recent third party team announcement, i'd say that there's a good chance of this coming over. Certainly a much better chance than the original ever had.

Holy crap, this game is gorgeous looking. The art style is eye candy to the 10th degree...

Of course, we won't be getting it in the west. I'd import if I knew more about the series, and more Japanese, since this is obviously text heavy and stuff.

Okay, i understand that okami is inspired be japanese classical way of drawing/painting things, but okami is the first game that i know to translate this draw/paint style into a game.

At least Okami is the most famous game with this type of art direction, i think.
