In a recent interview with the Japanese gaming magazine Dengeki PlayStation, renowned action game designer Hideki Kamiya voiced his genuine interest in once again working on series from his time at Capcom with Clover Studios. He specifically voiced his interest in creating a “true sequel” to Okami as well as remakes of both the original Viewtiful Joe and Devil May Cry

During his interview with Dengeki PlayStation, Kamiya stated:

I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me! 

When referring to a “true sequel” to Okami, Kamiya is likely referring to the second game in the series, Okamiden, which was a DS title developed by Capcom without his or Clover Studios’ involvement. The Devil May Cry series has also gone without his involvement since the original on the PlayStation 2, and has been lying dormant for some time now.

Both Okami and Viewtiful Joe are franchises that received critical acclaim upon release, with both still discussed quite favorably today. 

Nothing is set in stone yet, as this statement was merely an open invitation to Capcom rather than an official statement of any of these new games being green-lit. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for further news on this topic as it develops!

I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
