I have the PS2 version, but it's been sitting on my backlog forever, I think a US release of an HD remaster would finally give me the motivation to play this. It'd be gorgeous in HD. Hopefully we'll see this in other regions as well.

Perhaps my favourite game of all time. If Capcom ever hires Platinum to make a true sequel, I'd be so happy.

Now just release it on the EU store and I'll buy it without giving a seconds thought.

I wonder if it'll have Move support. I played the Wii version of the game, and I liked the stuff they did with the Wii controls.

I really need to play Okamiden. I loved Okami (though it felt perhaps a bit too long near the end) and I'm looking forward to how this version looks, even though I may not get it.

It does say there is Move support. 

Also full 1080p HD. Yum.

Loved this game, but didn't it do worse in Japan than it did here? No doubt it'll look gorgeous though.

One of the best games of all time that many people sadly missed. Now is their chance to experience it.

Always wanted to play this but never got around to buying it. Looks like it'll be a psn game as well, which makes me even more excited.

Move required?

@TheHT: There are move controls, but Move is not required -- you can play with a regular controller as well.
