Ōkami is a video game for the Wii that was originally released on the Sony Playstation 2 years prior. It is essentially the same game with added Wii functionality such as making brush strokes by pointing with the Wii remote. Because the developers that created the original title (Clover Studios) was closed down, the company known as Ready at Dawn handled the project. The game is still being published by Capcom. It spawned a 2011 Nintendo DS sequel called Ōkamiden starring a new hero called Chibiterasu rather than the original Amaterasu.
Shortly after the game's release, the cover art was discovered to have the IGN watermark on it, showing that the image had been ripped from the site. Capcom has apologized for this and has offered a free replacement cover slip without the logo for free. The watermark also appears on the cover of the strategy guides bearing the front cover artwork as well.
Capcom may have not been able to get images from the company so in possible desperation, they took the images from a well-known site.
The watermark can be faintly seen near the wolf's mouth.
