At its TGS 2010 press conference earlier this morning, Capcom lifted the lid on a sizzling, fantasy-infused hack-and-slash title called Asura's Wrath. It's being crafted, according to 1UP, by Naruto creators Cyber Connect 2 and will see a release on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

What can be gleaned about the title must be taken from the game's trailer, which is provided for your viewing pleasure just below. In the game, it appears as if you'll control a giant red dude who can take spears through the lung and still dispense bloody justice against oodles and oodles of foes with ease.  
 
As you might surmise from his neglect to react to injury, red dude is sort of a tough guy, and the game looks to play that aspect up. In the trailer, you'll notice him picking up a rather large pillar and swinging it about at will. You'll also see him summon armageddon via Buddha finger. I don't get it either, but I like it.
 
     

The game's engine is Unreal 3, if the startling amount of muscled dudes didn't tip you off. But despite nailing the engine and platforms, Capcom hasn't yet indicated when the game will be released.

KABOOM

T... that dude is pretty hardcore. Though is he a robot? It looked like he was a robot at the end of the trailer since he didn't seem to have any arms but wires coming out of his joint sockets. Maybe my eyes are just terrible.

I'm enjoying the crazy. 

#12 Posted by ChernobylCow (238 posts) -

Neat non-sensical asian style to it.  The story will probably be some airhead Dragon Ball Z black hole void, however.

Dude needs to chill out.

#14 Posted by coonce (1429 posts) -

#15 Posted by WhatTheDang (117 posts) -

Looks like someone's challenging Gears of War for its title of "Most Transparent Adolescent Power Fantasy". 

#16 Posted by Swick (223 posts) -

I don't get it.

#17 Posted by LordCmdrStryker (346 posts) -

This is easily the craziest shit I've seen in at least two or three days.

#18 Posted by Prolix (188 posts) -

Watching that trailer was like snorting a line of coke.  FUCK YEAH!!!

#19 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2490 posts) -

Any Naruto fans out there get a Zabuza vibe from this guy??
 
Crazy looking trailer, definitely seems like fun.

Yeah this is odd.
 
Edit: Watched it in non HD. All I can say is I will always have a strong confidence in any Capcom related game. Dark hair or not...
 
I totally get a God Hand vibe from this too.

@wolf_blitzer85:  I think there must not be an HD version of this video.

My eyes. What just happened?

#24 Posted by zombielaz (15 posts) -

So you fight god, with goro hands, and you punch him so hard you punch your arms off??? Between this and  Neverdead we are gonna have so many games where the protaganist falls apart.

The word 'Asura' comes from hindu mythology, it's the name of a group of deities. Which is very interesting because I can't think of any game that has used Hinduism as it's reference point.

I agree. Capcom is single-handedly making this an awesome month for new-release details. The entire time this trailer was playing, all I could do was laugh at how ridiculous it all was. And that's a good thing.

This seems pretty awesome.

Definitely, but I suppose that's a rather common anime archetype.
#33 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

The music gives off a very Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 vibe off it. I love it.
 
Also, the only thing I could think of with that giant finger was Master Hand.

Those definitely were wires and pipes sticking out of his joints, crazy robot thinks he's a real bo.... man.
