Okami HD Switch Review via Impulsegamer

Okami HD is literally a beautiful and fun game to play on the Nintendo Switch that celebrates both ancient Japanese culture and this console which is a match made in gaming heaven. The story is interesting, even though it can be a little long winded at times and the gaming environment is a pure joy to explore, especially when matched with the mechanics and controls of this title. All in all, Okami HD really kept me invested from start to finish and if you're looking for something a slightly otherworldly, this is the game for you.

Okami HD (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

Okami is as polished as a Zelda-like experience as they come and the Switch port is close to its best realization. If you've played it through before, there's nothing new here for you other than the soft warmness of a pleasant visual presentation and a smartly made adventure that stands up to the test of time. Okami HD is wonderful.

Review: Okami HD (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

If you haven't already gathered, Okami HD is an utterly fantastic piece of software, and we feel you'd be doing yourself a disservice to pass on it. For a mere twenty bucks, you can have access to a 40-hour adventure that emulates Zelda wonderfully, adds in plenty of memorable mechanics, features one of the most memorable art styles in gaming, and is completely playable on the go, to boot. Though it may be showing its age a bit visually and its combat is sometimes a little on the easy side, Okami is an important, fun, and notable landmark in gaming history — and one of the easiest recommendations we can make for your Switch library.

The extra cost to get a physical import copy is pretty reasonable. I got it from Amazon JP, and though the price fluctuates a bit, when I ordered it it worked out to about $32 shipped and only took a few days to arrive in Indiana. https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07D4HJJJD/

I might finally pick this gem up. They keep releasing it on systems that I own but I never get around to it. I think the Switch is a great platform for this.

Excellent game, if you haven't played it before this is your time to try. Best Zelda like game I played that wasn't Zelda. Touch controls look neato.

I loved playing Okami, and seeing coming to the Switch is a big appeal.
I really went through hell and back with the motion controls back on the Wii, and I do believe the Switch will make this 3 or 4 times easier, whether with the controllers or the touch screen.
The character designs and atmosphere is also very Switch-like.
For those who have not played or not finished Okami yet, this is a big "to get".

When Okami HD initially was revealed there was quite some outrage of not being on the Switch, so it's nice to see it's coming now.

I personally think this might be the best platform to play Okami HD on, since the touchscreen will be arguably the best way to draw on the game.
P.S motion controls are nice to :p
