Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess Demo And Okami Collaboration Are Out Now


There are so many active Capcom franchises that it seems like a big deal whenever a new franchise is added to the lineup. Later this month, Capcom is dropping Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess on most of the major consoles and PC. But you don’t have to wait long to play it, because the Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess demo is out right now. There’s no limit on the playtime, so you can play it as often as you want. Capcom has also released a trailer for the demo, which you can see below.

The game puts players in control of Soh, a warrior who is driven to protect a divine maiden, Yoshiro, and the village she lives in from evil. It’s an action game with some real-time strategy and tower-defense elements. During the day, Soh has to prepare the villages’ defenses and utilize his resources at hand. By night, the enemy creatures attack and not even injuries can stop Soh from his sworn duties. Through Soh, players can still direct the village’s defenses even when severely wounded.

Additionally, Capcom announced a collaboration between Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess and Okami, the classic 2006 video game that put players in control of the Shinto sun goddess Amaterasu. Although Amaterasu doesn’t appear in Path of the Goddess, Soh’s costume is clearly inspired by her in the video below.

The Okami collaboration is running between now and July 17, and it features more than just special outfits. Music and weapons from Okami are also available. And as an added incentive to players, Capcom will release the Okami items as a free update for Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess if enough players complete the demo by the end of the Okami collaboration.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess will hit PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on July 19.
