Every time we see new footage of Okamiden on DS we get just that little bit more excited for its arrival.
It's the follow-up to the awesome and under-appreciated Zelda-like PS2 quest, Okami (which also later released on Wii). The game, similarly to the original, stars a sun god in the form of a wolf named Chibiterasu, who has a magic paint brush. Clearly a perfect fit for the DS, players will draw on-screen gestures with the brush to cast magic and manipulate the game's world.
Chibiterasu will also be accompanied by a human companion, whose movements can be controlled with the new-to-DS Shirabe Brush. Sounds brilliant. If you're new to Okami we suggest you play the Wii re-release.
It's out in Japan on the September 30, but won't be with us in the west until 2011.
