For a limited time, the demo for upcoming DS game Okamiden is available for download on the Nintendo channel. The demo gives players a taste of the celestial brush and the new partner system in Okamiden, along with a glimpse of the unique world Okamiden has to offer.
Capcom has also released two new gameplay videos of the game, introducing some new characters in the game. They are Umami and Aji, evil cooks under the employ of Orochi (the main bad guy of the game), and Charity, an expert cook who can make great food out of not so great ingredients. Here they are, along with character bios straight from Capcom.
Umami and Aji
Umami and Aji are two cooks who prepare meals for Orochi. They were considered to be without peers in the demon world, but now their status as master chefs has come under threat from the humans. Sweet (Tsumami) has imbued her dishes with a secret liquid of her own concoction. What effect this has on the food it is prepared with is unknown as Orochi is the only one who has tasted its culinary goodness.
Charity is Manpuku’s mother. After vigorously studying the art of cooking for Manpuku, she is now able to create the finest dishes out of the simplest of weeds. However, it is because of this skill that she is sought after by Orochi and is kidnapped by the demons.
