If you remember the GP32, a handheld gaming system from South Korea, you might recall Asura Cross. Bylubaram Studio started developing this fighting game after Her Knights: All for the Princess, a side scrolling beat ’em up kind of like Final Fight with a fantasy setting. Like the original Cave Story, Her Knights and Asura Cross were developed by a single person.
Development moved onto the GP Wiz and then the GP2X Caanoo (pictured above) before the game vanished. Altogether, Asura Cross has been in the works for over ten years. Zenonia maker Gamevil backed Asura Cross and helped bring the game to iOS and Android. Asura’s Cross has eight characters like TaeKwon Do fighter Jin who uncovers a conspiracy and assassin DeeDee. Asura Cross has a versus mode that supports WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, but I think it’s most interesting feature is you can choose how the story unfolds similar to a visual novel.
