Hideki Kamiya says he got a little carried away when he claimed "Okami is going to be back," says nothing is set in stone

Oh come on!

Remember that video that Hideki Kamiya shared on Twitter back in Oct. 2019? The one where he said, “Okami is going to be back”? The one that got fans of Okami all riled up? Turns out Kamiya got just a tad carried away with that video.

Thanks to an interview with GameXplain, we now know that Kamiya took things a bit too far in that video. Apparently Kamiya was putting the video out there as a way to show his interest in creating a sequel to Okami. Kamiya says nothing is set in stone right now, but also doesn't want to say that a sequel will never happen. Finally, Kamiya says that if enough people request a sequel, perhaps Capcom will actually make it happen.

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.
