Okami wins Edge award at Edinburgh festival

Filed under: ,

Okami won Edge magazine's "favourite" title of the last year during an awards ceremony closing the first day of the Edinburgh Interactive Festival. The game beat out Generation GBA, Bully, Dead Rising, DEFCON, Final Fantasy XII, Test Drive Unlimited and Wii Sports. The winner was decided by the five staff members of UK magazine Edge. They say the game won because it "takes your breath away" and "it proves the PlayStation2 is still capable of giving us fun, innovative games."

That may be true, but it doesn't look like Edge's winner is going to take a victory lap. Clover Studios, which created Okami and Viewtiful Joe, was a division of Capcom that was uncermoniously dissolved late last year. Members of the Clover team are now working on Resident Evil 5 and a Wii game the last we heard. Looks like Okami got a lot of attention, but not a lot of sales. Guess Capcom can take their award and pretend they got it for their latest Mega Man title.
