Capcom producer wants God Hand sequel

Capcom’s Motohide Eshiro wants to see Clover Studio’s cult PS2 hit God Hand turned into a series. Expressing his love for the title, the producer said it all “boils down to demand”.

“I personally am quite the fan of God Hand,” he told Edge Online. “I thought it had really dynamic gameplay of focusing not on blocking but on constantly dodging and moving. It was really fun and refreshing, and it would be great to see that turned into a series.

“Once again, it boils down to demand – how many people want it, what kind of ideas we have that would be fresh and make it worth exploring again, and we could come up with a plan that could fit the users’ needs and the market’s needs at the time. But once again, it really depends on what the appetite is for it.”

Like Ono with Darkstalkers 4, Eshiro suggests you mail Capcom if you’re really interested in a sequel.

“Look up Capcom’s address online right now and send us some letters,” he said, “and see what happens. It gets a lot easier to push an idea through management if it looks like we have a lot of support for it!”
