Hunter, hero, wolf, god. Okami is a Japanese brush painting brought to life; an epic and unique action-filled adventure.
As darkness engulfs the planet, as a demon devours the light and warmth of the sun, as the plants and animals wither and die, there is only one hope… an old legend, an old god – the white wolf – Okami! The wolf god must return to drive out the demon curse and restore life to nature.
The demon Orochi was sealed in the darkness a hundred years ago, defeated by the goddess Amaterasu in the form of a white wolf, using the 13 powers of the 'celestial brush'.
But somehow Orochi has escaped its bonds, cursing the land once more to darkness. Fortunately, one wise tree sprite guarding the tiny village of Kamiki remembered what to do – the sprite brought to life the statue of the heroic saviour of the village, the white wolf, the goddess Amaterasu, the Okami.
Amaterasu can use her 'Celestial Brush' to turn light into darkness, return life to the withered plants and animals and ultimately defeat Orochi, and seal it away again. But Amaterasu is weak for now and has lost most of her powers. Amaterasu must journey the world, battle the demons, regain her powers, confront Orochi and return the world to peace and rightful balance.
Okami, a stunning quest where you, as the wolf god Amaterasu, transform the world you run through. A traditional Japanese brush painting brought to digital life, an epic, action-filled adventure, a unique story based on real Japanese Shinto legends. Unique and brilliant – it's the PS2 game of the year! Okami!
