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.

      • 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?

  • 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.

          • 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?

    • Aoshi00

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

      • I need a new .hack, desu ;___;

    • You really need another adjective besides “epic.”

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

        • 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:

  • 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…)

    • 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?

  • 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

    • 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.

  • 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

  • Needs more Space Buddha.
