Sharp new Okami screens hit

Okami is still a few months away from its US release, but Capcom has graced us with a new look at the weirdly beautiful platform-hopper that casts players as the sun goddess Amaterasu, who has taken the shape of a dog (possibly for tax reasons).

The new screens prominently feature the Yamata no Orochi, an eight-headed dragon of Japanese legend, and Ushiwaka, an enigmatic character who you'll fight several times over the course of the game. We've also got new shots of Amaterasu doing her thing in the game's bleak, hand-painted landscape. Hit the Images tab above to get a closer look.
