Okami is now reborn in High Definition for PS3 - best game I've ever played on PS2 is now the best game I've ever played on PS3. The graphics is obviously better, sharper and yet preserves the gist of the original game, however I can swear some of the texts have changed as well.

My PS2 console is no longer available to me so can't test myself; can anyone here find any official sources whether there are any changes to the game (apart graphics) or not?

Not only does it seem you can no longer acquire demon fangs via loading screens, but also via the reflector sub-weapon attack. So far this is all I can find.

I vaguely remember doing something in loading screens, but wasn't sure of this. Thanks for reminding me and you're totally right! Wonder why they ditched that cool feature. :/ – Shadow Wizard Dec 30 '12 at 7:53
I believe the "loading screens" feature was ditched mainly because loading take a shorter while on this while, most of the time it wont even get to the right side of the screen before continuing... – JohnoBoy Apr 16 '13 at 20:15

It seems that the only changes are really the graphics and the added trophy and move support. Even reviewers who played the game on PS2 haven't mentioned any changes apart from that (e.g. Eurogamer Review).

Thanks, I read this exact review before posting here actually. :) – Shadow Wizard Nov 8 '12 at 13:47

One more change: both the Wii version and the HD PS3 version do not have the original song from the closing credits ("Reset" by Ayaka Hirahara). It was removed for some pretty stupid reasons.

Good catch, I would never have noticed that! – Shadow Wizard Mar 23 '14 at 8:30
