Okami Earns Second Guinness World Record (Wait, It Won One Before?)

No, really, what’s that first one? The answer may depress you…

Believe it or not, 2006’s Okami has won its second — yes, second — Guinness World Record. As reported by Twinfinite, the news comes from Capcom’s Comic-Con panel, where it was announced Okami received the award for “Most critically acclaimed video game starring an animal character.” Seeing as how Amaterasu is a sun god taking the form of a wolf, it certainly seems apt!

…so, what was that first record? It was actually awarded back in 2006, and, well, it’s gonna sting to read: “least commercially successful winner of a Game of the Year award.”

Ouch. Painful memories of Clover Studios, much? Regardless, we certainly hope Hideki Kamiya and the rest of Okami’s developers are proud of this news.

What do you think of Okami’s second Guinness World Record? Let us know in the comments below!
