How Will You Fight This Giant Asura’s Wrath’s Boss? You’ll Punch Him In The Face

By Ishaan . June 7, 2011 . 1:33pm

Yes, Capcom brought a lot of games to E3. Here’s a trailer and in-game footage for Asura’s Wrath, developed by CyberConect 2, featuring weakling planet-sized boss:





“Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers,” Capcom say about the story. “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.” Hey, that’s like God of War in reverse!


Asura’s Wrath’s big bullet point is that you can control Asura even during cutscenes. Capcom and CyberConnect2 are hoping to make it a game that comes off more as a TV drama than a movie. It’s still a ways off from release, though. We won’t be seeing Asura’s Wrath until 2012.

  • ….I love this game


    • puchinri

      I’d rather they just start MvC4 now, bring back all our old characters and throw in new ones, Asura being confirmed first.

      • Guest

        Date Masamune
        Gene from Godhand
        Iron Fist

        these guys have been waiting on line first dood…

        • puchinri

          Ah yes, I was thinking of Gene while watching the gameplay. Good point. They can all be confirmed at the same time? Like, right when it’s announced.
          You heard us Capcom, now get to it!

  • Same thing I said on Twitter.

    The gameplay against grunts looks a bit lacking and clunky and..I just don’t know, hope that it’s way cooler in the actual game. The Boss battle is great though, awesome enemy, lots of variety and action!!

    • puchinri

      I liked how the smaller enemies/grunts looked (and the areas), but yea, it did feel a bit lacking. Not bad necessarily, just… Underwhelming.

      • I agree the area and all looked great, the gameplay against the grunts looks very simple though, maybe I expect way too much over the top action because it’s CyberConnect2. :/

        • puchinri

          Yeah, same here pretty much. I was really hoping it’d be more over the top too. But maybe there’ll be more in store with the grunts that we haven’t seen yet. I can’t imagine they’d all be so underwhelming. That’d be really disappointing if so. ;u;

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    U MAD: The Game – Featuring Grimoire Weiss, “I ain’t even mad” Travis Touchdown and a couple of space Buddhas.

    (I hope my ears aren’t deceiving me)

    • puchinri

      Hah. This made my day.

  • So remember folks, when fighting against planet-sized gods, solve your issues-not just with words- but by saying “I AM A MAN!” and punching them in the face.

  • puchinri

    Jdorama are pretty epic at times, so that would be a smart way to go.

    CyberConnect2, please remain awesome for all eternity. How they can go from Solatorobo to Asura’s Wrath, I do not know. I just know that I love it. I can’t wait to play both games. ♥

    And er, maybe I just have weird tastes, because Asura is comin off as kinda hot. But there people that think Kratos is hot, so I don’t feel that awkward.

    • There are people who say Kratos is hot? Really?….Oh man now I need to erase every thought out of my mind! >_<

      • puchinri

        Lol! Yes! That was my initial reaction! And then I proceeded to (mostly) purge the thought. Sorry you had to read that.  ^u^;

        • …It’s Ok, I..was just not prepared for that~

      • Guest

        In this world we have people that think that overweight hairy middle aged guys in lumberjack  outfits are hot so nothing’s shocking anymore

  • Sweet! Liam O’Brien!!

  • Draculoid

    Well, the boss battles and cut scenes look great (Like the Ultimate Jutsus CC2 did for the Ninja Storm series) But i agree the fighting against small enemies looks like there could be some improvement. Still far too early to judge though, especially from a 45 second clip where it seemed the player was favouring that projectile machine gun like attack.

  • That gameplay video hit all the right spots for me :D Keep on going CC2!

  • badmoogle

    I was very excited for this when i saw the first trailers but now the QTEs killed it for me.I think i’ll pass.

  • Guest

    He kinda looks like he wants to be punched in the face…

  • IT appears that this game has more depth that most people realized, tons of variety and pretty sweet gameplay.

    Though to be honest, I was surprised to hear English voice acting. Though I’m more use to Japanese, the english dub sounds pretty decent. But will take time to get use to it.

  • You know what Capcom, if you can make Asura’s Wrath
    you can also make God Hand 2!….that would be all

    • Guest

      And another Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure wouldn’t hurt

  • asura one bad ass MOTHER

  • Code

    If only Capcom had given CC2 DMC instead zwz;; Seriously though it’s looking excellent, this is one of the first games from E3 this year I can say has moved up a notch on my list of things relevant to my interests zwz;

    • PrinceHeir

      actually i wouldn’t mind CyberConnect2 handling the new game :P

      looks like Robin Atkin Downes(Travis Touchdown and Miller from No More Heroes, and Peace Walker respectively) will be voicing the bad guy :D

      gonna be awesome, certainly better than DMC :P

  • Yu_TheKing

    One Question: Asura, Why You So Badass?!

    • Because he is Chuck Norris’s Apprentice, awesome-ness beyond compare.

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    If I send you my money now will it come out sooner?

  • Kibbitz

    Game, looking good. Yasha, sounds excellent. Asura… urgh.

    • Aoshi00

      Yea Yasha does sound badass kinda like Wesker :)  I like the gods from Hindu mythology.. I think only the Clamp manga RG Veda or anime Tenkuu Senki Shurato had used it before (FF only has Shiva)… I think Norse or Greek mythology are used too much..

      • Kibbitz

        They are, aren’t they? I’m hard pressed to think of other works they’re used
        in. There’s a supposedly awesome scif-fi novel called Lords of Light ( by Roger Zelazny where humans
        with ultrahigh tech set themselves up as gods styled after the Hindu
        pantheon and rule some more primitive planet. I say supposed since I’ve
        never read it myself, just quoting someone I used to respect who mentioned
        this before.

        • Aoshi00

          That’s cool, seems very highly rated, I would check out the novel if I have a chance.

          • Kibbitz

            Been meaning to myself, just keep dragging my heels on it. You know what’s
            worse? That I knew of this novel in the early 1990s and have done nothing
            about it =|

  • blah blah

    I declare a boot to the head.

  • Scallion

     I can’t wait to hear him when he’s really pissed. Here’s hoping this game gets ridic.

  • darkfox1

    OMG IS ASURA VOICED BY L’iam O’Brein? Man he is the guy who does voices like Gaara from Naruto and Akihiko from Persona 3 hypeeee. Well I think it’ him
