Tokyo Game Show 2010: Capcom Announces Brand New IP – Asura’s Wrath

leave a comment »

In addition to extensions and re-imaginings of existing IP, Capcom also had something entirely new to share with us in the form of Asura’s Wrath, an Unreal Engine 3 powered hack and slash affair developed by Naruto developer CyberConnect2.

Very little at all is known about the title, but it is supposedly meant to be very OTT with battles between massive armies and the title character himself able to summon god-like beings to assist him in battle.

The official PR fluff says this:

“Inspired by Asian mythology and fused with science fiction, Asura’s Wrath will redefine the action genre by delivering unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction,”

“Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers. 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. By channelling his inner rage, Asura is now able to unleash devastating attacks and wreak havoc as he battles against the deities who have wronged him and their earthly forces. Inspired by episodic dramas, Asura’s Wrath will be split into distinct sections with gameplay and narrative unfolding as one and building to a final climatic conclusion.”

Groovy. The crazy as all hell trailer can be seen below:

The title isn’t very far along in development at all, so a 2011 seems unlikely at this point.

The platforms that Asura’s Wrath will release on are the 360 and PS3.
