Okamiden’s debut trailer explicitly demonstrated the handheld sequel’s adorable baby wolf quotient, but did little to explain the gameplay. Capcom’s latest clip hopes to amend that issue.

Through a melange of stylized sumi-e environmental effects, fans of the original Okami can clearly see that this sequel takes the “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” route. Aside from the introduction of stylus-controlled brush strokes, it seems that Okamiden will further extend the series’ reputation as “like The Legend of Zelda, but with a wolf.”

No solid release date has been revealed for Okamiden outside of a nebulous “coming in 2010.” We expect more solid information — and cutesypoo baby wolf action — from the Tokyo Game Show, scheduled to kick off on September 24.
