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.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Okami HD System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Okami HD GPU benchmark chart and we also have an Okami HD Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Hopefully these coders only produce videogames! just imagine a coffee machine with such requirements...

I believe intel stuck their i7s in pizza and coke machines and such, I saw a commercial a couple years ago XD

I'd bet my left kidney a G4560 runs it flawlessly. After all it is a 2006 game. Either that or it is terribly optimized.

well, modern PCs still cant run the God of War 3 emulator properly... I think we should just be happy that they are giving us a chance at all to play this on pc xD

You can't compare it like that. Running a game through emu and natively are 2 different things. Emu means you have 2 OS running at the same time, and the performance is also based on how good the emulation sw was developed.

Great, just give me your left kidney if you lose the bet . As you can see i'm in a grave need of an upgrade.

well considering that quad cores are the weakest CPUs now(considering Ryzen and Coffeelake), I'm NOT really surprised that they recommend a quad core, but for sure it will work on weaker systems.

I don't get why the downvotes, it's true that even the weakest systems have quad core cpus

Hmm... maybe I was NOT clear enough... who knows... who cares... I don't know why I get downvoted, since nobody actually left a comment with a reason, so I don't care.., if anybody actually had the audacity to actually comment why he/she is downvoting me, then I'd care. A bunch of anti-social pricks if you ask me.

LOL The Game Debate community are a very angry bunch.... far too easily triggered, and then it's "ARRRGGGGHHHH I'LL TEACH YOU TO POST SOMETHING I DISAGREE WITH>>>> DOWNVOTE DOWNVOTE DOWNVOTE DOOOOOOOWWWWN VOOOOOOOOOTE" I have to imagine the lot of this angry bunch perched atop tall buildings at night dressed in silly super hero costumes, ever vigilant for that post they disagree with where they can strike like a Ninja and perform a DOWNVOTE COMBO on ya!!!! They're not the heroes GD wants....

Sadly, most of my downvoters never even curse me... which is funny, as the site name is " game - debate ".


And my point is still correct, since the newest AMD and Intel CPUs are at the very least quad cores, so I do NOT expect games to recommend less than a quad core anymore, even if they can run on weaker hardware, which some people decided is a bad thing, or "offensive" or whatever they like to assume...

Yeah I mean it was just a stated fact lol. As you say it's people with weaker hardware taking offense for whatever reason, probably.
