is coming to the DS on March 15th, 2011, but you can pre-order it from Gamestop and get yourself a boatload of goodies. These items will include a touch-screen tool that looks like a paintbrush and a custom screen cleaner that has original game artwork on it. There are only 20,000 of these available, so order early if you want one.
Capcom is happy to announce March 15, 2011 as the launch date for Ōkamiden, a picturesque action adventure game on the DS. Today, we are also excited to tell you about the exclusive GameStop pre-order offer, Goblin Mask Facebook app and contest and box art reveal.
The limited run GameStop pre-order offer gives gamers the essential tools to play the game – a touch screen instrument in the shape of a paintbrush and a custom screen cleaner featuring original game art of the adorable wolf pup, Chibiterasu (Chibi) and Kuni, a young swordsman. Only 20,000 of these items will be available and people who pre-order the game (MSRP $29.99) will receive both at the time of software pick up early next year.
Gamers can enter to win a 3DS, a copy of the game, Chibiterasu plushies, and other cool prizes while testing their painting skills with the new Goblin Mask Facebook app, which is available by clicking the Goblin Face Graffiti tab at http://www.facebook.com/Okami. The app is based on a challenge that Kuni and Chibi encounter in the Demon Market where they draw a face on a cloth in order to pass through without being recognized. Utilizing the Graffiti functionality actively used by 4.8 million people on Facebook, now you can draw funny or scary faces on any photos of your friends in traditional Okamiden style.
