Okami is one of those games a lot of people are sick to death of seeing re-released, but in the 11 years since its launch, it's still never found a home on PC. Unless you've made use of the myriad emulation options available out there, that is. Still, here we are, in 2017, and Okami HD is coming to PC. For those after a Zelda-style action-adventure, this is absolutely top drawer stuff, and here are the system specs needed to run Okami HD.

Okami HD Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8150 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 470 or Radeon R7 260X
  • HDD: 34GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

Okami HD Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX GeForce GTX 950 or Radeon R9 270X
  • HDD: 34GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

At its heart, Okami HD is just an up-resed version of a PlayStation 2 game from 2006. In that respect, the system requirements are surprisingly high. They're not a patch on a modern AAA game of course, but still pretty demanding for a game that's been kicking around in various forms for a decade.

Despite this, just about any mid-range system bought in the last five years or so is going to be capable of running Okami HD without a hitch. All you'll be needing is a modest DirectX 11-capable graphics cards with 1GB VRAM, just 2GB of system memory and a quad-core CPU. On that final point, we expected a high-clocked dual-core CPU to run Okami HD without a problem.

Things take quite a jump up for the recommended specs for Okami HD; unreasonably so in terms of CPU. There's no way we can see Okami HD beginning to tax CPUs like the Core i7-3770 or the brand new Ryzen 5 1400. They're just too powerful to become a genuine bottleneck in a game of Okami's simplicity. There are few very elements on-screen at any one time.
