North America Gets Asura’s Wrath vs. Ryu And Akuma In May, Too



Last night, we received word of Asura’s Wrath DLC featuring Street Fighter characters. While last night’s announcement was for Japan, this morning, Capcom USA announced plans for the various DLC in North America.


The first DLC for Asura’s Wrath is available today on the PlayStation Network, with Xbox Live set to follow on March 28th. Titled “Episode 11.5,” the downloadable episode takes place between two episodes from the full game. April 3rd will see the release of another such episode—Episode 15.5. Both episodes feature a new anime-inspired art style and will cost $2 or 160 Microsoft Points.


Following that, the next batch of DLC episodes will be available on April 24th. Four new episodes that will continue the story of Asura’s Wrath will be released for $7 or 560 Microsoft Points. Capcom say to look out for an “extra twist” with these episodes.


Finally, the last two pieces of DLC will be made available in May. These will feature Street Fighter characters such as Ryu and Akuma, and you’ll be able to battle the both of them. The Ryu battle will be available on May 9th and Akuma will follow on May 16th. Each will cost $2 or 160 Microsoft Points.


All of this DLC has also been confirmed for Europe. European readers can view details here.
