The First Asura’s Wrath Update Since Tokyo Game Show

By Spencer . January 19, 2011 . 4:05pm


CyberConnect2, makers of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja and .hack series, are working with Capcom on an original title called Asura’s Wrath. The PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 title was unveiled at Tokyo Game Show with a trailer of Asura smashing enemies into each other. The feeling I got from the video was a brutal action game like God of War mixed with the over-the-top campiness of God Hand.


Capcom still isn’t saying much about Asura’s Wrath, but they released a new video of Asura wrestling with more stone enemies.

    Why can’t HE be in Marvel vs Capcom 3?

    • FireCouch

      Because of many, many reasons.

      • Garyuu

        Is one of them “because he is the only character to survive an ultra-galactic prostate exam?”

  • urbanscholar

    Baffles my mind why we don’t know more about this game; articles, interviews, etc. Probably more info during E3?

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    The music sounds epic, they must be using my favorite composer. I love CyberConnect 2’s choice and the font, reminds me of a certain series! This game is a day one must buy solely because I love CC2’s work! It looks stunning!

      Either you’re very rich or extremely optimistic because I have yet to hear you not say “day one”

      • joesz

        lo~l dude, do you really have to care If he says day 1?
        I think its none of our business to butt in stuff like that.

        • neon6

          If someone constantly says “Day 1” for a multitude of titles, wouldn’t you find it strange if they suddenly stopped?

          • Scallion

            I find it strange that any of you actually keep track of comments on a vg blog…

            Anyway, I’m disappointed that the environments and the amount of enemies aren’t as impressive as they were in the teaser trailer. Hopefully things get much more over-the-top.

          • Tsunayoshi Sawada

            Really, I think I can recognize tons of people here by their posts, and have a pretty accurate personality profile for them, well of course the most vocal and active…

        • Guest

          Well then by your logic it’s none of your business to butt in on what I say either. But too bad that logic is moot in a public discussion forum

          Hows them apples? lol

    • Kris

      What composer would that be?

      • Garyuu

        Chikayo Fukuda

    • Aoshi00

      I’m w/ you on this one, UNS2 was great, looking forward to this next game coming from CC2 as well.

      • Ashgail

        I need a new .hack, desu ;___;

    • Charles Lupula

      You really need another adjective besides “epic.”

      • Tsunayoshi Sawada

        Dude…epic is epic! lol. There is just no alternative.

        • Charles Lupula

          Invest in a thesaurus. Or better yet, just going alternate ways of saying the same thing. The overuse of a single word, as a writer, bothers me to no end.

          In fact, here’s my Christmas gift to you:

  • Garyuu

    Wait a minute…..where’s all the yelling?!

  • HarryHodd

    This is an action RPG right? Looks like fun. Been waiting for more info on this as well as other TGS announced games (project Dark especially)

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      Did they ever say there were going to be RPG elements in the game? I thought it was just straight up action, like Devil May Cry or God of War

      • HarryHodd

        Hmmm somehow I got the idea this was an RPG. But google search tells me it’s action. Thinking I was wrong.

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    This game makes me happy all over. Keep the new IPs coming, Capcom

  • goronyan

    For some reason I’ve remembered the time i was playing Bujingai after watch this vid

  • puchinri

    Looking at Asura in the start of the trailer, he kind of reminded me of Guts. And that, combined with CC2 working on it, makes me want it. I suppose there’s a greater likelihood of us getting this if we don’t get Solatorobo, though I would like both. (Then again, that’s Bamco territory…)

    • Tsunayoshi Sawada

      I thought Europe was getting Solatorobo as it was playable at an event(s) in Europe, and articles state its rumored for 2011…

      • puchinri

        I assumed they would be, but since there’s so little said about it and those events from before its name change even, I don’t know. It’d be nice if EU (and Austrilia) got it, but I don’t know.

        I’d like it to be localized in NA though too.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks awesome the first second kinda reminded me of the first RE5 Complete Build up trailer.

    let’s see how Ninja Theory’s DMC progressing well.

  • Testsubject909

    Why do I see a bit of Hajime no Ippo?

  • Paul ‘Chinny’ Chinn

    It’s almost like celshading using a “real” color pallet. I am by no means a “graphics whore” but this looks NYICE.

  • Vino (Tim N)

    I really do prefer the comment community here more then any other VGblog, every other person is saying “God of War ripoff durrr” in another blog that starts with a K and ends with otaku.
    Peeps here are genuinely want to play it like me =D

    • Paul Chinn

      Eh, if it is a third person game with melee attacks it is called a God of War ripoff for whatever reason. People are stupid.

  • Gabriel May

    The first trailer was REALLY epic. It was one of my fave trailers of 2010 and got me really hyped for this game. Glad to see some news about it. I just hope it’s no where near as hard as God Hand. It can be outlandish sure but if it’s punishing I might just cry in the corner.

    Regardless, it’s a Day Before 1

  • Heehee

    Needs more Space Buddha.
