Long ago, there was a man who saved the world from a terrible Evil by defeating it and sealing it up. Both his hands were said to have possessed god’s power and radiated a golden blaze.

In awe, people called him ”God Hand God Hand”.

It is believed that anyone who obtained the legendary God Hand and its enormous power will be able to become either a God or Demon…

A traveller called Jean saves a woman who was being set upon by bandits in a desert town. Although his intervention allowed her to escape, their superhuman strength was too much for Jean. These bandits are notorious villains that have been carrying out repeated slaughters justifying them by saying they were hunting for the God Hands. They are famous for their incredible strength and armour-like bodies. Jean was defeated by their sheer power and his right hand was cut off as part of the God Hand hunt. He writhed in agony and hovered between life and death and then fell into unconsciousness.

When he awoke he found himself in an inn, he had a right hand but clearly felt it was not his own. His replaced right had was… that legendary God Hand!

Thus Jean obtained the power of god, but at the same time became part of the fight for its enormous power.

He’s a wanderer who’s been travelling around. He has a strong sense of justice and kind characteristics, but usually doesn’t say much. When he opens his mouth, he tends to grumble. He may have obtained a God Hand, but at the same time he became the target of those who are trying to get it back from him. He’s still not aware that from the moment he awoke in the inn his fate has been
altered. Jean has the right God Hand.

Jean becomes caught up in many fights where blows and kicks are exchanged. Evade the enemy’s attack and then launch a deadly counterattack! This tension and exhilarating feeling is an absolute
sensation. The player can be even more satisfied when he releases the power of God Hand

Even during intense hand-to-hand combat, comical scenes have been included. This game is a mix of the exhilaration you get from winning battles and funny elements that will make you laugh – this unique mixture of elements will provide a truly distinctive game experience!

"This is a game where you have to beat the bad guys only with your bare hands, there are no swords or guns. The main character, Jean, is not a conventional hero who fights to ‘save the world’, but fights the bad guys because he doesn’t like them. He right hand is replaced by the mysterious God Hand which has super-human power, and the bad buys will literally be blown away when this power is launched. Although he has been dealt a bad hand by fate, Gene continues to fight on because he enjoys it. This is where this game differentiates itself from other, more serious fighting games. Obviously the player can enjoy pure action by beating up the bad guys but at the same time, comedy scenes are included as well where you can laugh while playing" says God Hand Producer, Atsushi Inaba
