After releasing on Playstation 4 and Xbox One last year, Okami HD is coming to Switch and brings with it exclusive gameplay features only available on the hybrid system. Touchscreen mechanics and Joy-Con controls are available for players to utilize, with standard controls also part of the game.
Okami is brilliant, blending Japanese history and cultural themes into a game with amazing music, visuals, gameplay, and a wondrous main character in Amaterasu. I fell in love with it on Wii, and I can’t wait to experience it again on Switch.
