KONAMI announced a new mystery game "Okamikakushi" on PSP. The director is Ryukishi07 (the creator of "Higurashi no Naku Koro ni" game) and the character designers are Peach-Pit (the manga authors of "Rozen Maiden").

Translation of the caption:
Is it god or a wolf? Fear and mysteries intermingle over the hidden rule of an old town. In 1983, the residents of Jyouga were involved in a repetitive nightmare. A chain of ten events will lead us to the truth...

What's the difference between kamikakushi and okamikakushi? One being famously translated into Spirited Away while okami is something like emperor or government? So Governmenting Away?


According to the official website, it's "Okami-kakushi (狼隠し)". so Okami is a wolf.
Damn, I was afraid you were going to say that, okami = ookami. My version sounds a lot more interesting :)

Judging from the caption "Is it god or wolf?", I think you're also right. It has double meanings 狼隠し and 大神隠し。That's why it's written all in hiragana おおかみかくし。
