Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Asura’s Wrath
The first round of DLC for Asura’s Wrath has hit PSN and will launch tomorrow on Live Marketplace. Today’s release includes Episode 11.5, an anime-inspired downloadable episode that bridges the gap between episodes 11 and 12 of the full game. The pack is going for 160 MS Points/$1.99. Another stylized episode is scheduled to launch next week, on April 3, for the same price.
Capcom’s collaboration with CyberConnect2, Asura’s Wrath, is now available for the 360 and PS3. As a once-revered god banished for a crime he didn’t commit, players set out to take revenge on those who exiled him and murdered his family. According to Capcom, Asura’s Wrath is set to redefine the action genre by fusing Asian mythology with science fiction to deliver “unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama, and interaction.”
A new demo for Capcom’s upcoming action title Asura’s Wrath has launched on PS Network, and 360 gamers can look forward to giving it a go tomorrow when it hits Live Marketplace. The demo offers a taste of the game’s “blend of action and cinematic sequences” with two episodes, which includes a boss battle with Wyzen, said to be the size of a planet, and Augus, Asura’s old mentor.
Asura’s Wrath is receiving the pre-order treatment from Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop. Amazon is offering the Devastator Pack, which includes two additional gauges that reduce damage taken and increase the Unlimited Rage Gauge’s recharge rate. Best Buy has another pack on offer, the Infinity Pack, which includes the Extinguisher Mode and Zealot Mode; the two allow players to recover quickly from overheating as well as prolong Unlimited Rage Mode. GameStop is offering up some physical goods instead of virtual extras, with a “what if” comic book from Penny Arcade, following the cyborg-demigod throughout everyday situations, and a collection of developer CyberConnect 2’s concept art on the flipside.
It can’t be easy having a brother-in-law that you don’t get along with. For Asura, from Capcom’s upcoming action title Asura’s Wrath, that’s unfortunately the case with the latest playable character to be announced, Yasha. And he has a fancy mask.
