* Like in {{Okami}}, in the US most of the original names are shortened. I always wondered: what's the logic in that? [[ViewersAreMorons Are Ushiwaka or Kuninushi]] [[ViewersAreGoldfish too long to remember]]? Why do they shorten Tamaya into Tama but let Sakuya and Susano as such? And why do they abridge the four-syllable Izanagi into Nagi but let the five-syllable Amaterasu alone? There doesn't seem to be any logic in thatů

* Why did they remove the ink regenerating? I mean, it's not that inconvenient from a gameplay perspective, but it ''is'' inconvenient from a design perspective! They need to put ink bottles ''everywhere'' to minimze your risk of running out, and there's ''still'' a chance of it happening, so they had to ''put in a redo function!'' Why did they do this? It doesn't improve the game, and made it harder to make!

* Who wrote the script for this game!? It can't agree with itself whether Shiranui and Amaterasu are the same being, the same goes for Akuro and Yami, and people sometimes know thigs they shouldn't! I could have done a better job...

*** Why shouldn't [[spoiler: Manpuku]] be on the cover? Sure [[spoiler: he livved 100 years before the rest of the party]], but he still played an important role.

** RetCon out since the game developers realised that there was no point having an Ice God when a Water God could easily fill the same role. After all, ice and water are the same thing.

* Why does Kurou keep twirling his damn flute to emphasize half of everything?

*Is there any logical explanation for Chibi not using the Lucky Hammer on himself to make himself lighter, rather than leaving it behind on the ship? I have to imagine that his weight would change along with his size (because, otherwise, it would've been monumentally uncomfortable for the emperor to have Ammy running around inside of him in Okami). I mean, yeah, the developers needed a way to keep the mallet on the sunken ship, but it doesn't seem to make any sense within universe.

** Because Chibi isn't as powerful as Ammy. It's sort of like an inverse CompetenceZone; the older the gods are, the more powerful they are.

to:

*** As far as I recall, Shiranui was referred to as "he" in the first game too, and he does have more masculine features. Since both Shiranui and Amaterasu are just possessing wolf statues, rather than actually being wolves themselves, it might be that Shiranui possessed the statue of a male wolf and Amaterasu possessed the statue of a female wolf.

** And if that evil is so strong, it wins, then a new hero will emerge to balance that evil out.





















* Did anyone else go throughout most of the game without realizing That anything ice-related in a battle can be used as a source of water? Seriously, Where were Itegami along with a few of the other brush gods from the previous game?

Added DiffLines:

** Well... one of the composers from the original game returned (Rei Kondo), so maybe, for the melodies he didn't originally compose, he did his own takes of those melodies. IIRC, some of his melodies which he composed originally were used again, like the Moon Cave music (although somewhat different), the Orochi battle music, between others, maybe.

* Okay, this game is supposed to take place nine months after the events of ''{{Okami}}'', right? Then how the hell is Kuni, Susano and Kushi's ''son'', as old as he is? Shouldn't he be an infant? If that? How is he the same age as Mushi?
