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

Capcom announced a demo for Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess during its upcoming livestream, along with a surprise: it’s available today.

According to Capcom, the demo will let you play through part of the main story, and there’s no limit on how long you can play or how many times you can play. It’ll be available on all platforms Kunitsu-Gami is releasing on: Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PS5, PS4, and Steam.

And that’s not all: Capcom also unveiled a collaboration with its critically acclaimed 2006 hit, Okami. The collaboration will include Okami-themed costumes for Kunitsu-Gami’s main character, Soh, and the maid Yoshiro, as well as special weapons and music.

Capcom added that if enough people work together and complete the bonus unlock campaign between now and 7:59 p.m. PDT on July 17, 2024, Okami collaboration items will become available as part of a free update for everyone who purchases a copy of Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess when it launches on July 19. You can check out the details of the bonus unlock campaign below.

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

According to Capcom, “The game takes place on a mountain covered in impurities. During the day, purify the villages and prepare for the setting sun. During the night, protect the Maiden against the hordes of Seethe. Repeat the cycle of day and night until you cleanse the mountain of impurities and return peace to the land.”
