Capcom reps have confirmed to GameSpot that the company has a new game in the works, God Hand. "At this time I can only confirm that Capcom will release God Hand for the PS2 in Japan," said the rep.

While the rep would not go into specifics such as price and release date, French game site JeuxFrance.com has some details on the title. It claims that God Hand is an action title, and will be developed by a team led by Shinji Mikami and Atsushi Inaba.

God Hand's two lead designers have produced a string of hit franchises for Capcom. Mikami, who's on board to direct God Hand, also has Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, and Resident Evil on his resume. Meanwhile, God Hand producer Inaba is well known as the producer of the Viewtiful Joe series, as well as the upcoming Okami game for the PS2.
