According to Jim Reily of IGN, Capcom filed a new patent that would seem to have relation to the Okami franchise. Reily writes: “But continued fans of the title may want to cheer up, as there seems to be, well, some kind of Okami news. Capcom recently filed a trademark for ‘Okamiden,” which as Siliconera points out, could be short for “Okami Gaiden” (Okami Sidestory) or “Okami Densetsu.” Could we see something soon? Capcom is currently planning the original game’s release for October 15th on Wii, so this could have something to do with that, but let’s hope not. Time will tell.
