To promote Okami, Capcom tries an uncommon path: Dota 2

Coinciding with the upcoming re-release of Okami, Capcom and Clover Studio submit an Amaterasu courier to Dota 2's Steam Workshop for a chance to make an appearance in the MOBA.

Capcom and Clover Studios have submitted an Amaterasu courier to Dota 2's Steam Workshop for a chance to make an appearance in the massively popular MOBA. 

Coinciding with the the upcoming December 12th re-release of Okami (as Okami HD) for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Amaterasu could appear as a courier if enough Dota 2 players vote for her inclusion.

As Polygon points out, this isn't the first time a developer has submitted a Dota 2 courier to promote its game; Coffee Stain Studios (Goat Simulator), Adult Swim Games (Rick & Morty), and Square Enix (Final Fantasy Type-0 HD) have all done so in the past.

In Dota 2 couriers are entities used as support, carrying items and buying items from the shop. Custom couriers can be created and submitted to be considered for inclusion in the game if they receive enough votes from the community.
