Okamiden demo available on Nintendo Channel

okamiden- playwisegaming.comCapcom’s second release in the Okami series, “Okamiden,” will be available for the Nintendo DS on March 15, but you can play it today. The well-hidden Nintendo Channel on the Wii holds the key to unlocking this painterly pearl of a DS demo.

The full process for downloading the demo is detailed below.
