Development of 'Okami' sequel desired by both Hideki Kamiya and Ikumi Nakamura

Okami 2??

Ikumi Nakamura (background designer for Okami) and Hideki Kamiya (director and story lead) took to Twitter to express their want of a new entry in the Okami franchise. It's not quite a confirmation, but the desire from both of them seemingly confirms they're working on making it happen. The Tweet urges fans to message Capcom to express their want of a sequel.

"Okami is going to be back! We want to make Okami sequel and fans are looking forward to it too. You guys want to see Kamiya’s Okami again, right, everyone?"

Full Tweet + video here!

If the Tweet is to be believed at face value, "Okami is going to be back" is a really strong indicator of a sequel happening with Capcom's approval.

NIntendo funded Bayo 2 and 3 and W101 right?
Hope they throw money at this to make it happen.

Also Astral Chain; would love to believe that's what happened!

I never played Okami but Im happy for the fans who have been waiting on a true sequel for years.

That being said I doubt it comes to fruition. Not because Okami didnt sell that well and is a cult classic but because the idea of Capcom supporting Switch with actual NEW software seems impossible. Given how they have only given us Mega Man 11..

Okami has some issues but is a wonderful game. I'd be really happy about getting a sequel.

I would jump through the roof and hit Jupiter if this was to be true.
