Okamiden Runs Smooth on 3DS is a Adventuring game available on the DS. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.
Okamiden Runs Smooth on 3DS is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Okamiden Runs Smooth on 3DS can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Okamiden Runs Smooth on 3DS can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
Okamiden brings the dream of a portable Okami one step closer with a firm release date.
The picturesque action adventure had been hovering around various dates early next year. It's now been confirmed that it will be released March 18th in Europe and Australia.
Okamiden DS is a perfectly formed adorable adventure that feels more like Zelda than both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. While on the original DS it's technically impressive, well written and beautiful to look at, put it in a 3DS and it turns into something rather magical.
Okamiden isn't what I was expecting, although if I had played Okami (Wii) I think I would have known what was coming. The classic dog based calligraphic console game has pretty much been recreated on the DS.
