I don't really have a lot to say about Asura's Wrath that the trailer won't say for me. I mostly just wanted to say that you should watch the trailer. So here's that, give it a look, and we'll reconvene under the video, cool?


So this game is attempting to bring Asian mythologies to a sci-fi world, and what we're seeing here in this trailer is a boss fight against a cyber demigod. Apparently said cyber demigod is in possession of Asura's daughter, and Asura is, you know, filled with wrath over this fact.

Also worth noting is that this appears to be at least partially gameplay, not just some cutscenes from a more-standard action game. I was left with the impression that the game is going for an "interactive cinema" sort of thing, which is really just a nice way of saying "it all looked like one big Quick Time Event." If the entire product is this wild, though, I'd certainly be OK with that. No word on if the entire game rolls out this way or not, but we did hear that the final US version of the game would contain English voicework.

Asura's Wrath is being developed by CyberConnect2 and it's due for release in 2012.

So it's a game AND a movie? This game will cost an arm and and a leg.

How can you possibly take this game seriously without any giant enemy crabs?

There is already gameplay footage of this game, a quick time event similar to this has been shown before as well as the general brawler action parts of the game.

I am very excited about this game, looks insane, but knowing that it's being developed by the guys who made those mediocre Naruto games is holding me back a little.

cyberconnect2 needs to work on not making every single one of their games have the exact same music. i love the music, to be honest, but im having a really hard time watching this trailer when all i can think about is .hack//G.U. or ultimate ninja storm 1/2

Soooo Too Human with a different mythology?

#25 Posted by MariachiMacabre (6939 posts) -

So, in a sense, it's God of War but using Japanese mythology? Count me in. The trailer was pretty spectacular, looking forward to seeing more of this game.

the action is sure to get out of hand fast because of it.

I think my money's on this moment appearing at the end of a 6 arm abilitease. You will then regain arms throughout the game.

#32 Posted by katsu044 (139 posts) -

this will be on my *it came from japan!*  list.

#33 Posted by Jimbo (9711 posts) -

Amazing.  Can I play it with 6 Move controllers?  Or Kinect with two people stood behind me?

Kinda reminds me of Shadow Raiders for some reason.

#34 Posted by championfetus (230 posts) -

Can't wait to see true gameplay. You know, with a HUD and whatnot.

No, just 5 arms.  They were told they could keep the leg.

I really wish people would stop using the one woman (or man) wailing in their trailers.

The asian mythos might make it an interesting sci-fi tale, hopefully it won't be drowning in common lackluster japanese gameplay mechanics/controls.

#48 Posted by LiquidSwords (2739 posts) -

Seriously looking forward to this game

The guy with the finger was a huge pussy apparently.

*slow claps*


Yeah, I'll never play this. But I'll give Capcom a free short-pitch for a character-action game that I would certainly play:

Street Fighter: Shaolin Monks: バットは狂気のたわごと
Think online/offline co-op SF combos in a world that can't possibly make any sense as a cohesive story, plus a half-broken tag-team brawl mode.

I'd give them $60 just to get working on it.
