Ah, the official announcement is finally here. After being recently rumoured and then rated, Okami HD has been confirmed by Capcom for a PlayStation 4 release. According to the latest issue of Japanese publication Weekly Famitsu, it's hitting the Land of the Rising Sun just before Christmas, on the 21st December, and it'll support 4K resolution. Oh, and those little loading screen minigames will be returning.

Unfortunately, we don't have any Western release dates yet, but we're sure it won't be long before Capcom gives us something to work with. It's also worth mentioning that the PS4 version is getting a physical edition in Japan, so we suppose there's some hope of a retail release in North America and Europe.

We'll keep you in the loop as far as Western dates go.
