Japanese mythology and artistic action come to life in Ōkamiden, as players use the stylus to draw their way through an epic adventure. Incorporating the best elements from the award-winning Ōkami series, Ōkamiden introduces the wolf pup named Chibiterasu, a partner system and clever puzzles to deliver a heartwarming adventure sure to please fans of the series and newcomers alike.
Chibiterasu, a young sun god incarnated in the form of a wolf, teams up with a rich cast of characters and their unique skills to fight off a new threat that has leeched the world of its vibrant color. Beyond the battles, Chibiterasu and friends will come to realize their inner potential and accept the responsibilities and kinship that come with being the children of great heroes and gods. Perfectly suited for the DS, players use the stylus to "paint" on the game screen, wielding a celestial brush controlled by Chibiterasu. This powerful tool can attack enemies, paint helpful objects into life and perform exceptional feats like controlling wind and raging infernos that will change the world before the player's eyes. Chibiterasu's partners have unique abilities of their own, such as Nanami, the mermaid who easily navigates water, helping the player conquer puzzles and face an onslaught of perilous challenges.
