Capcom will release an updated version of Okami, Clover Studio’s stylish action-adventure game originally released in 2006, for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The publisher announced Okami HD today, pegging the game for a Dec. 12 release.

Okami HD will support 4K resolution on PlayStation 4 Pro, Windows PC and Xbox One X, Capcom said in an announcement. Players will have the option of widescreen 16:9 or original 4:3 aspect ratio.

The game will be released digitally and physically (on PS4 and Xbox One) for $19.99.

In Okami, players take on the role of Japanese sun goddess Amaterasu, a wolf-like deity who sets off on an adventure to restore a world decimated by evil to its original glory. The game explores Japanese folklore and features a visual style based on sumi-e ink painting.

The original Okami was developed for PlayStation 2. It was later brought to Wii and PlayStation 3 (also under the name Okami HD), courtesy of developers Ready At Dawn and HexaDrive. Okami was the penultimate release for Clover Studio before it was dissolved by Capcom in 2007. Okami director Hideki Kamiya and producer Atushi Inaba later went on to work at PlatinumGames.
