Asura's Wrath hits shelves in Japan today, while the rest of the world must wait little over a month for Capcom's rage-soaked action-adventure title from .hack// and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja studio, CyberConnect2. If you're a little jealous that our Japanese cousins can enjoy what Capcom describe as an "interactive cliffhanger-action game", then rest easy, as they've released a demo on Xbox LIVE and PSN to sate our appetites; for now.
The Asura's Wrath demo is free for Gold subscribers and all PSN users, clocking in at just over half a gigabyte. And in suitably bombastic style, the demo isn't an introduction to the story of a combat appetizer, but a two-course sampling of not one, but two "epic boss battles". You'll face off against the planet-sized Wyzen, then come face to face with the sword-master, Augus. On the Moon's surface, naturally. Check it out, and tell us what you think. Asura's Wrath is due in Europe next month. [Xbox LIVE]Click here for the demo trailer >>
Capcom has released a new trailer for action/shooter/brawler/QTE/interactive cutscene insanity Asura's Wrath that shows the newly-unveiled second player character, Yasha, in action. As well as a dismembered Asura running around with a sword in his teeth. And motorised unicycles. And a boss the size of a planet. Thanks to the unique hand-drawn art style, it manages to both sexy and utterly perplexing... persexing, if you will.
We still have no idea what Asura's Wrath is really all about beyond its premise of mecha Hindu gods seeking vengeance and answers. You can check out our hands-on preview of this bizarre and beautiful title here.Click here for the trailer!
