Kunitsu-gami: Path of the Goddess reveals demo release, available today, and Okami collaboration

Capcom announced the Kunitsu-gami: Path of the Goddess demo during its Next livestream, along with a surprise: it will be available today.

Capcom said the demo will allow you to play part of the main story, and there is no limit to play time or the number of times you play. It will be available on all platforms Kunitsu-gami is based on: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PS5, PS4, and Steam.

And that's not all: Capcom has also revealed a collaboration with its 2006 cult hit Okami. The collaboration will include Okami-themed costumes for Kunitsu-gami's main character Soh and the young woman Yoshiro, as well as exclusive weapons and music.

Capcom said that if enough people work together and complete the bonus unlock campaign between today and July 17, 2024 at 7:59 PM PDT, the Okami collab items will be available as part of a free update for everyone who purchases a copy of Kunitsu-gami: Path of the Goddess when it releases on July 19. You can check out the details of the bonus unlock campaign below.

We first learned about Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess almost a year ago at the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase, and got a good look at the gameplay at the Xbox Partner Preview in March. Interestingly, as we noted at the time, it looks to be a real-time strategy game, mixing third-person action with tower defense-style tactics mechanics.

According to Capcom, “The game takes place on a mountain covered in filth. During the day, purify the villages and prepare yourself for sunset. During the night, protect the Maiden from the Sithe's hordes. Repeat the day and night cycle until you have cleansed the mountain of filth and returned peace to the land.”
