Asura's Wrath News

April2012

  • Feature Should Games Find Inspiration in Television?

    Suitable for broadcast

    The video game industry has been infatuated with cinema for years. The obsession stretches back to the late 1980s, if not earlier. Titles like Prince of Persia scattered cinematic setpieces throughout: leaps of faith into nothingness, climactic battles upon crumbling bridges. There was delight when SEGA's Mega CD allowed the...

  • News Capcom Outlines DLC Schedule for Asura's Wrath

    Lots of content

    After yesterday’s brilliantly bonkers DLC trailer, we can't blame you for anticipating Capcom’s upcoming content expansions for Asura’s Wrath. Thankfully you won’t have to wait long, as the title's first downloadable episode has already released on the PlayStation Store for $1.99. But developer Cyber Connect 2’s not...

  • News Asura’s Wrath DLC Trailer is Appropriately Bonkers

    Now fight your rival

    Asura’s Wrath is more crackers than a packet of Jacob’s savoury biscuits. As such, it’s hard to imagine the DLC could take things much further. But based on the evidence of this trailer – which teases the inclusion of Street Fighter legend Ryu – developer CyberConnect 2’s found a way. Revel in the madness below.

  • News Ryu Dragon Punches His Way into Asura's Wrath

    Shoryuken

    Capcom’s going crossover crazy at the moment. Not content with combining the universes of Street Fighter and Tekken, it’s also announced a nifty little DLC pack for Asura’s Wrath that adds karate king, Ryu, to the fold. While the Japanese publisher’s being coy about specific details, a single screenshot shows Asura facing off...

  • News Capcom Pushes Asura's Wrath Back

    Avoids Binary Domain, faces Mass Effect 3

    Capcom's curiously delayed the UK release of Asura's Wrath. The melodramatic actioner was previously due out on 24th February here in the UK. It’ll now go up against Mass Effect 3 on the 9th March. No reason was given for the delay, but we can’t imagine it has anything to do with strategic alignment...
