Okami announcement coming next week

Fresh announcement due at start of Golden Week.

The official Japanese Okami Twitter account seems to be teasing news for next week.

“Hello, this is Okami news,” said the account. “Sorry I’ve been kind of out of touch lately, but I have the feeling we’ll be able to drop a fresh announcement like WHAM! around the beginning of Golden Week, so please look forward to it. Right now we’re on track with preparations.”

Golden Week, which runs from April 29 to May 5, is a period of multiple consecutive holidays in Japan. Many companies and stores close down in observation.

Interestingly, the latest issue of Famitsu is teasing something presumably big for its next issue, which is due out on newsstands May 9.

“The new game to bring fans tears of happiness finally comes to life! A must-see!”

The teaser could apply to something other than an Okami game, of course. But the possibility is there.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.
