And that’s not all: Capcom also revealed a collaboration with its beloved 2006 hit Okami. The collaboration will include Okami-themed costumes for the main character Kunitsu-Gami, Soh, and Maiden Yoshiro, as well as special weapons and music.

Capcom added that if enough people cooperate and complete the bonus unlock campaign between today and 7:59 PM PDT on July 17, 2024, the Okami collaboration items will be available as part of a free update for anyone who purchases a copy of Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess when it releases on July 19. Details of the bonus unlock campaign can be seen below.

We first learned about Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess about a year ago at Xbox Games Showcase 2023, and we got a look at gameplay during the Xbox Partner Preview back in March. Interestingly, as we noted at the time, it appears to be a real-time strategy game, combining third-person action with tower defense-style tactics mechanics.

According to Capcom, “The game takes place on a mountain covered in corruption. During the day, cleanse villages and prepare for the sunset. At night, protect the Maiden from Seethe’s hordes. Repeat the day and night cycle until you cleanse the mountain of corruption and restore peace to the land.”
