Okami set in... modern day Russia
You'd think Russia had enough on its plate right now--what with failure of the 'mecha-Putin' program--without a horde of mangy mutts to contend with. It seems that Moscow's population of highly intelligent canine hobos has recently taken to riding the city's rail network in order to get around. Sounds pretty adorable, huh? Well city officials seem to think otherwise, and are actively pursuing these knapsack-wielding ne'er-do-wells one unfortunate pooch at a time.
Enter Amaterasu, star of the cult classic video game Okami, and patron saint of all canine-kind. Having righted the wrongs of ancient Japan, Okami 2: Red Thunder (patent pending), would relocate this benevolent wolf god to the mean streets of modern day Russia. In keeping with the sequel's contemporary bent, Ammy's old paintbrush is now a magical spray can, while her patented back-mounted wheel weapon becomes--yes, you've guessed it: a WMD. For an extra helping of revenge, Ammy can even call upon the services of Laika, i.e. that dog the Russkies blasted up into space back in the mid-50s. As the old Russian proverb goes, “hell hath no fury like a space dog scorned”.
