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. <br><br> In awe, people called him ”God Hand God Hand”. <br><br> 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…

With great power comes great responsibility. Play as a drifter bestowed with supernatural-like abilities who must confront the fate and responsibilities inherent with this new found power. Hand-to-hand combat is at its best when gamers unleash the power of the God Hand to deliver righteous punishment onto worthy enemies.

Centuries ago, the world was in imminent doom until a man defeated Angra and sealed away his godly powers into his own arms. People feared and revered this person who would become known as “God Hand”. Legend has it that anyone who acquired such hands would possess immense power that could turn them into a deity or demon. Fast forward to a small town overrun with thugs wielding super-human strength. A gruff drifter named Jean finds his way to this troubled region and defends a woman surrounded by a brutal mob. Despite his valiant efforts, Gene is overpowered by these thugs and his right arm is severed before falling into unconsciousness. He later awakens to find his limb whole again and that he is now the possessor of the legendary “God Hand”. The burden of being hunted by demonic legions seeking the right hand of God soon begins.

In God Hand, it’s judgment day as players assume the role of Gene as he tries to ward off the demons that seek to obtain the coveted hand. Although he may have been granted the strength of the almighty, keeping these foes at bay won’t be easy as evil approaches from all directions for the ultimate showdown. Fortunately with a vast repertoire of moves, delivering deadly blows and crushing attacks has never been so satisfying. Disintegrate every enemy into the very dust that blows through the town and exorcise the evil spirits that possess the locals by unleashing the power of the God Hand. With nearly limitless combo possibilities, gamers can juggle enemies in the air and obliterate them with spectacular finishing moves. It’s Armageddon time!
