With Okami HD, an awesome remaster of a beloved PlayStation 2 classic, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC - it's no surprise that Amaterasu is back in the spotlight. Capcom have submitted Amaterasu to the Steam Workshop as a courier which may get added to Dota 2 depending on community votes.
Amaterasu is a good dog. As part of that re-release, dubbed Okami HD, the game's protagonist may also wind up making an appearance in Valve's very popular MOBA, Dota 2. If you're more of a League of Legends person, you can still enjoy Amaterasu's prettiness by playing Okami HD next week. "Take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf, on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world of Nippon into a ruined wasteland". Couriers are support characters that an entire team can use to carry items or buy things from the shop. We just didn't think he would be arriving in DOTA 2's spotlight.
Okami is a gorgeous game and the art style hasn't been lost in the transition to Dota. Adult Swim Games brought over Rick & Morty character Mr. Meeseeks a few years ago.
Unfortunately, a courier can be killed by opponents, and there's a reason why enemies would do this to a team's courier.
