We've just spotted an interesting tweet from the always-vociferous Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya, who seems to suggest that Okami 2 could be revealed for Wii U during next week's Nintendo Direct presentation.
Next week...in Ninty Direct... RT @levishadow: Hey, any news on Okami 2 for WiiU?

Now, before we all freak out, strip half-naked and start rubbing ourselves with celebratory ointments, it's important to note that Kamiya could well be suggesting that we should just wait for the presentation before asking stupid questions, and he's definitely not adverse to a bit of light-hearted trolling from time to time. What's more, as we understand it, Capcom still owns the IP - not Platinum Games, who left the company after developing the original.
Log this one under 'unlikely, but a lovely idea nonetheless.'
