Okami Box Art: Now With 100% Less IGN Watermarks Says Capcom

okami ign watermark snafu

Someone, somewhere within the cubicles of the Capcom offices is getting their ass chewed off, or at the very least has egg smeared all over their face because of a snafu over the cover of the Okami port for the Wii.

Apparently, you can see an IGN watermark on the cover, and after being reported to Capcom, they have promised to make good on this strange mistake. Here is an excerpt pulled from their US blog:

As fans know, the real art of Okami is on the game disc itself, but given the artistic nature of this game, we’d like the outside of the box to match the beauty contained within. To that end, we’re offering a free make-good gift to our fans. If you purchased Okami for the Wii, for a limited time, you can choose from one of the three art pieces below and Capcom will ship a high-quality version of the box cover straight to your door.

Each piece is sized to fit perfectly into your Okami Wii box and will transform your copy into the best-looking game on your shelf. Just head to http://www.capcom.com/artredemption/, fill out the form, and go back to playing Okami while you patiently wait for your new, improved art to make its way to you.

Poor Capcom, I honestly feel bad for them over this, and the cover art they are promising to replace the original cover with is drop dead gorgeous. Personally, I prefer the third option which you can check out via their US blog (hit the link above).

Thanks for the heads up: Videogaming247
