Ōkamiden one step closer to being released in Europe and North America

The folks at Capcom Europe and Capcom USA have been pretty tip-lipped when it comes to the localization of Ōkamiden, the portable sequel to one of the best games of the last generation.

Sometimes, though, actions speak louder than words--such as when both companies, in the last few weeks, trademarked the title in their respective territories.

When will they come out and confirm Ōkamiden's release outside of Japan? Your guess is as good as mine, but if history is any indication it'll happen sooner rather than later.

Oooooooh, I hope so! I still hold that Okami is one of the most beautiful games of all time. It's got the charm of Viewtiful Joe and the fun and depth of Zelda...and the LENGTH of Final Fantasy! It's like...the best of ALL worlds.

Yeah, it's definitely a great game. Although part of me wishes the sequel was being made for a console (PS3/Wii/360), another part of me really likes the "chibi" style of this game--and I know they'd never use that style on a console sequel.
