Capcom may be working on a Wiimote Okami.
by Rob Burman, IGN UK
UK, February 13, 2007 - Mark this one as a rumour for the moment but we've heard that Capcom US is looking to bring the beautiful Okami to Wii. You can colour us excited at the prospect of using the Wiimote to control the game's innovative magical paintbrush.
Since Okami was released on PS2 last year in the States, it's been apparent that Clover Studio's epic game and the Wii seemed to go hand in hand, thanks to Nintendo's motion sensing controller. However, today a reliable industry insider unaffiliated with Capcom told us that the company is seriously considering creating a Wii version and may even be working on it as we speak.
However, when we asked Capcom UK for confirmation of Okami's move to Wii we got this response: "Officially we have no plans for Okami on Wii at this time. Research and development are always looking at possibilities but given Clover is now closed for business, I think it highly unlikely a Wii version would be possible."
So there you have it - officially it's not happening but it's by no means a flat-out denial. And even with the closure of Clover Studios it wouldn't be that difficult for a team to port it across, particularly when you consider a lot of Clover staffers went back to Capcom after the studio's closure.
We'll keep you updated with any further news.
It should work extremely well if they are really working on it, are the guys that made up Clover still working for Capcom at all? If not I doubt it is any more the a port, but still good for the three of you that don't have a PS2 (lol, exagerration, maybe), from what I have heard (haven't played it yet).
It's an awesome game. I hope it's a sequel because I wouldn't buy it just for the wii brush.

I like it, i think its beautiful
Problem is im not gonna buy the Wii version because I already have the ps2 version, even with extras...Unless its a sequel or an original undertaking.
But for people who havn't had a chance to try it out, its a must, and it's great for the Wii crowd to check out...it would be a quick way to get an A rated game to the Wii
I was suprised it didnt come out on the GCN initially cus it would have been a perfect fit for that system IMO.
I couldn't get into that game.

This is probably the best port the Wii could get from any last gen system, no one should be complaining if it is true.
Interesting. I don't know if it's worth paying attention to a rumor like this, but it could be good for the Wii if it did show up. I know I'd try it.
This is totally unrelated, but I'm still really praying the Viewtiful Joe 3 will come out despite Clover being shut down.
Well IGN seem to be mostly misses for rumours recently, if it's wrong remember to get mad at IGN, not Nintendo or Capcom.
But, check this out...
Top 100 games in NA in 2006. Guess what's number 100. Blazing Angels outsold it. Euuugh!
That's why Clover Studios shut down. Depressing isn't it? IGN game of the year... 100th best seller.
Clover Mark 2:
When Clover Studios (Okami, Viewtiful Joe) announced last fall that it was closing its doors, gamers the world over lamented the loss of one of the planet's most talented teams.
But hope is not lost. The old Clover team has been busy.
Atsushi Inaba, the man who has worked on a plethora of Capcom's brightest games, including both Phoenix Wrights, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil: Code Veronica, and Okami (among others), has formed a new studios that's getting back to Clover's "roots."
The new company, called Seeds, Inc. (complete with a clever devolutionized version of the old Clover logo) has brought aboard several key ex-Clover staff members, including Hideki Kamiya, one of the brain children behind the PS2s lupine adventure Okami, and Shinji Mikami (God Hand, Viewtiful Joe, and Killer 7, among others) .
What platform(s) the studio will be developing for is still unclear, but if you want an idea of what Seeds is all about, check out their nifty homepage. The company is also currently hiring to add to their 50+ staff.
GAF will keep you up-to-date about Seeds as announcements are made.
I love you, I hate you. Will you marry me? I just want to kill you.
And we dont know how good or bad Vanguard will be.
Marvel UA was just a sloppy version of the game. i dont think it was because it was ported, it seemed they thought they were going to have a genuinely good game, they had been showing off the Wii version for quite a while...
