Okami is a game that barely needs any kind of introduction, as it is one of the most critically acclaimed games ever made, and one that has captivated players since it was first released in 2006. Capcom and the now-defunct Clover Studios really poured their hearts and soul to deliver what many consider to be a masterpiece.
Hideki Kamiya, who created and directed the critically acclaimed title, has toyed with the possibility of a sequel to Okami in the past, but nothing official has come out of this; at least, not as of yet. In fact, in October of last year both Hideki Kamiya and Okami environment artist Ikumi Nakamura expressed their desire to make Okami 2.
In a more recent interview with IGN Japan, Ikumi Nakamura has revealed that she wants to pitch Okami 2 to Capcom, and that she even believes that chances of Capcom agreeing are pretty high — which should make Okami fans pretty excited.
"Actually that's the project that I'd like to make reality the most. As long as I go after it, I have the feeling that the chances are pretty high that it might become a reality. So actually, after quarantine is over and the world becomes normal again, I am planning to make a visit to Capcom to propose the idea," revealed Nakamura.
Okami HD was somewhat recently launched for the Nintendo Switch in August of 2018, and prior to that the HD remaster had already been released on other platforms. In November of last year it ws also revealed that Okami had finally joined the 1 million-seller club, so pitching a sequel idea to Capcom now sounds like a pretty good idea.
