Panic Maker unveiled in Japanese press

The next game from Viewtiful Joe producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi is due out over there this summer.

Viewtiful Joe producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi's next project is to be a PS2-exclusive action-adventure called Panic Maker, Famitsu reports this week. Due out this summer in Japan, Panic Maker allegedly has a healthy sense of humour and should see players struggling to fight off an alien invasion of Earth with amusing consequences.

Sadly for the moment there's no word on a Western translation or anything like that, and Capcom couldn't confirm any plans for the game at E3 when we called this morning. We will of course keep our eyes open and let you know if and when that changes.
