Okami Gets Some Official Promotion in Dota 2

Over the course of its lifespan, Dota 2, the popular MOBA from Valve, has had multiple Steam workshop cosmetics added to the game for purchase.

Amaterasu is a good dog. Fans of both Dota 2 and Okami can vote for "Ammy" starting today, in order to get her approved as a purchasable item in-game. There's even a short clip that shows Amaterasu in standard and flying courier animations.

The game was thrilling when it was released back in 2006 and was instantly hailed for its handsome story and unique character design. Okami HD will be recapturing that magic for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players on December 12. They also allow players to see more behind what makes the Okami narrative so unique, with the celestial brush gods offering their guidance. VG 24/7 says Capcom has found an interesting way to do some cross-promotion with the release of the Amaterasu mod and the imminent arrival of "Okami HD". She battles demons, defends ancient Japan and is a Sun Goddess.

It isn't just Capcom who is eager to introduce a character from its classic game to "Dota 2". Adult Swim Games brought over Rick & Morty character Mr. Meeseeks a few years ago.

This sudden move to have an Okami courier in Dota 2 might actually be a tie-in with the upcoming Okami HD remake coming out later this month. This means couriers are created to cut the time it takes for players to get items.

It's understandable why people trying to reach a PC, video games or "nerd culture" centric audience might turn to DOTA 2.
