Okami 2 Was Reportedly In Development A Few Years Ago Before Getting Cancelled

Apparently, PlatinumGames and Capcom were working on the sequel together.

Capcom’s Okami remains one of the most beloved games they’ve ever made, and that’s largely down to the fact that it was not just an amazing experience back when it first launched- thanks to its timeless nature, it is still as stunning today as it was when it first released. Demand for a sequel to the game has been high for years on end now, but if you’re among those who’ve added their voices to that demand, this bit of news might be particularly devastating for you.

In a recent flurry of activity on Twitter, prominent leaker with a proven track record, Dusk Golem (who’s been quite active with their insider info in recent days) dropped the bombshell that Okami 2 was indeed in development a few years ago- only to be cancelled not long afterward. Dusk Golem claims that PlatinumGames were developing the game, but its development was mired by “drama and burned bridges”, and the consequently strained relationship between Capcom and Platinum led to the project being scrapped.

In fact, it will allegedly “probably never happen” because of the “soured relationship” between the two. “It’s probably buried and dead unless something changes there,” said Dusk Golem, before adding in a following tweet, “This was a few years ago, but let’s just say Platinum probably never want to work on it again after what went down.”

Given that this is coming from an industry source and not from any official channels, don’t take this as a confirmation of any sort- but it’s worth noting that Dusk Golem has been a reliable leaker in the past (especially when it comes to Capcom-related things). Not to mention the fact that PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya, who directed the first Okami, has expressed his desire to work on a sequel multiple times.
