Capcom is working on a new game, titled Project Palm, and the reveal is happening next week.


Update: It looks like chances of this being a Dragon’s Dogma game are pretty slim. The site was revealed to be for a mobile game/app in Japan.

Siliconera says the actual name of the project was revealed early by Famitsu. Specifically, Famitsu ‘s Apps for Girls section.

It’s called Toraware no Palm (The Captive/Taken Palm), and Famitsu has since edited the name out of the page.

Original story: Capcom has launched a website for a new game. It’s called Project Palm, and the website is all in Japanese.

This new website features the date August 2 prominently, presumably when the game will be officially revealed. Crucially, the teaser image being used is that of a palm, hence the name.

While it doesn’t say much on its own, smart people over at NeoGAF believe it could be a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma, or at least another game in the series. The original Dragon’s Dogma featured many characters whose palms had glowing scars.

Finally, the site shows one of the game’s voice actors alongside a mention of their previous work, which also doesn’t tell us much, not to mention being Japanese only.

Dragon’s Dogma came out on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2012. One year later, Capcom released the Dark Arisen expansion. A complete package came out on PC earlier this year, featuring improved visuals and other refinements.
