Asura’s Wrath is an upcoming action video game collaboration between CyberConnect2 and Capcom that was announced at the Tokyo Games Show 2010.
Asura’s Wrath loses the traditional distinction between gameplay and cutscenes through seamless player controlled narrative. Simply put, even in cinematic sequences the player can control Asura, directly affecting the gameplay.
According to the game’s producer Kasuhiro Tsuyachiya, “Asura’s Wrath takes elements from Asian mythology and blends them with science fiction. In the game, Asura is a demigod fighting to reclaim his daughter from the deities who kidnapped her and banished him from earth.”
Asura’s Wrath is currently in development to be released in Japan and North America for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
