Okami HD Paints Its Way to Nintendo Switch Later This Year

Okami HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch later this year, specifically, this summer. The announcement of the port of the HD version of the hit action-adventure classic was announced during the Nintendo Direct today on March 8th, 2018. This comes after the release of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions late last year.

The Nintendo Switch version will come with its own Nintendo Switch-specific controls like using the touchscreen to handle puzzles and the ability to control the painting using motion control, too. Okami HD is a gorgeous remake of the original Okami that came to PS2 before being ported to Wii and PS3 last generation. This stunning remake of the game will be arriving soon.

You won’t have much longer to wait, as Okami HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch this summer, so only a few more months left to wait to play it docked on your TV or in handheld mode anywhere you go. You can watch the full trailer for the game above, giving you a glimpse of what you can expect when it releases.

This is far from the first Okami game on a Nintendo console, as the original game was released on Wii in addition to a direct sequel to the game called Okamiden that was released exclusively on Nintendo DS. For more information on Okami HD, keep it locked right here.
