I'm playing Okami on Nintendo Wii and I noticed that the attack movement with the brush sometimes doesn't work as it should, mainly on the parts with Susano, where you should make him think he is attacking things. On normal combat, I can slash the demons without problems.

Is this an issue with the game or is it my controllers or is there a right technique to do the attacks?

  • By "attack movement", do you mean the Power Slash? – Wrigglenite Feb 15 '17 at 13:35
  • Yes, it's this specific technique. – BarbaAlGhul Feb 15 '17 at 13:39

What you're probably doing is pointing somewhere, holding down the A button, and then moving your Wii remote. I've found that by doing this, the pressure on the button makes your hand move and your aim slightly off, causing a slight "curl" at the beginning of what should be a straight line. The game tries to figure out what you're trying to paint, but the change in direction at the start usually makes it too unlike a straight line to be recognized as such.

A better technique is to start moving the remote first, and then hold the A button to make a straight paintstroke.

  • Thanks, I will try this as soon as possible. And yeah, I always start with the A button pressed. – BarbaAlGhul Feb 15 '17 at 15:44

If I recall, the Z button on the nunchuck will force a straight line, which will help a lot for the Power Slash segments.

Some of the Wii motions can be rather difficult to pull off consistently, and the most troublesome techniques can vary from person to person. Until a late game brush technique I personally had far less trouble than others I knew playing the game.
