Asura's Wrath Captivate Trailer

Posted by Grey Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Our favorite trailer at last year's Tokyo Game Show gets a sequel, and more deity's ass-kicking ensues!

A collaboration between Capcom and Japan-based CyberConnect 2 developed for release on both PS3 and Xbox 360, the announcement trailer of Asura's Wrath wowed us at last year's Tokyo Game Show by being the biggest, boldest, insanely action-packed trailer we have seen for some time.

So it arrives to nobody's surprise that the second trailer of the game, picking up where it left off at the climatic cliffhanger ending of the first, continues to pump up our adrenaline level and along with that, anticipation for the upcoming title that is still without an official release date as yet.

For those who, like us, can't wait for Asura, the awesome-looking battle-hardened protagonist to layeth the smacketh-down on the godly but nonetheless fat candy-ass of the planet-sized Buddha-like figure who dared poke his divine finger (literally!) into earthly business, hit the jump for some six-armed bad-assness.

While there are still not much information available on the title, here are some official details about the title from Capcom-Unity:

With unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction, Asura’s Wrath™ will deliver a fresh take on the action gaming genre. Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers. Consumed by anger at the injustice he has suffered and swearing vengeance, Asura discovers he can use this fury to his advantage and turn it against his enemies. Cue relentless action as Asura finds himself facing off against numerous unique enemies, including planetary sized bosses, unleashing devastating and visceral attacks. Asura’s Wrath loses the traditional distinction between gameplay and cutscenes through seamless player controlled narrative. Simply put, even in cinematic sequences the player can control Asura, directly affecting the gameplay, making Asura’s Wrath a truly unique experience.

• New type of action game – Asura’s Wrath will seamlessly blend action and narrative and will adopt an episodic nature, more akin to a TV drama series.
• Relentless action – Asura’s Wrath keeps placing gamers in tight situations and says ‘now get out of that.’
• What the…? – Unique enemies and planetary sized bosses will continually challenge players’ expectations.
• Innovative setting and story – Fusing Asian mythology with sci-fi, Asura’s Wrath’s universe will be truly unique.
• Collaboration with CyberConnect2 – Continues Capcom’s strategy of partnering with the best developers to produce titles to complement its own internal projects.
