While playing Ōkami is an experience in and off itself, I can promise that one of the biggest treats is simply watching Ōkami. Seeing its world grow and, via your actions, flourish makes its brush-stroked beauty worth the price of admission. Today’s the game’s 12th birthday, and in celebration we have just a bit more of that splendor to appreciate thanks to some of its original artists.

 

 
Featuring each of the game’s Celestial Deities gathered together, it’s a great reminder of each step of Amaterasu’s journey through Nippon. If you’ve yet to experience its one-of-a-kind style, you owe it to yourself to either track down a copy of one of Clover Studio’s and Capcom’s finest — or grab Ōkami for Switch once it releases later this year.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
