Capcom, during its media briefing in London this week, finally confirmed that Okami will be coming to the Wii sometime in Spring 2008.  The news is being reported by both Eurogamer and MCV.  Here are some of the details on how the game will utilize the Wii’s controls:

The game also lends itself rather well to the potential of Nintendo’s Wiimote for control. Amaterasu’s Celestial Brush – a paintbrush used in combat and for solving puzzles – is a perfect fit for the Wiimote, and so it proves, while combat will also include various “motion-controlled physical attacks”.

Okami for Wii has been a long time rumor dating back in our records til February of this year.  Let’s hope that Capcom really puts a lot of effort into bringing this already classic game over to the Wii.
