An account going by CAPCOM_OKAMI_HD has uploaded an Amaterasu courier to the DOTA 2 Steam Workshop, which fans are able to vote on to have it appear in the game. 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. She battles demons, defends ancient Japan and is a Sun Goddess. Couriers are support characters that an entire team can use to carry items or buy things from the shop.

For those who are not familiar with the "Okami" games, here's a brief description of the upcoming remaster: "Experience the critically acclaimed masterpiece with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style in breathtaking high resolution". This means couriers are created to cut the time it takes for players to get items. By default couriers take the form of donkeys but custom couriers have been a feature of Dota 2 for a long, long while.
