Trailer and screens of Asura's Wrath

Cyber Connect 2 game Asura's Wrath shows itself with these new screens and a trailer that will be online very soon.

• Innovative setting and story – Fusing Asian mythology with sci-fi, Asura’s Wrath’s universe will be truly unique.

This looks awesome! I can't wait for a release date to be announce. I can't help but wonder if they're using some variation of the Street Fighter engine. It doesn't look bad, but you can see how much the Street Fighter art style is influenced in those screens.

Sold. This looks incredibly awesome. Want now, based solely on art style and over the top japanese drama.

All these trailers indeed looked awesome, but i need some actual gameplay footage/demo before throw my money. If the whole thing is some QTE fest - thanks, but no thanks.:)

Game looks fantastic...except the 6 arms, looks like shit LOL
Looks awesome though, combat is gonna deliver I can feel it.

looks a bit too dragon-ball Z for my liking. and screen 6 has some of the worst texture tiling i've seen for a long time.

unless it's completely awful, i'll probably give it a rent.

Guessing from their Naruto pedigree, lots of incoming QTE assaults for the boss battles! Hmm...

Few details some months ago from a famitsu magazine.

Extremely low freedom
-Won't have a big power up system
-Won't be abundant in items
-Won't be easily accessible
-No multiplayer
-No co-op
-No multiplayer via DLC
-Uses UE3 because it is felt that it's a better fit for CC2 than MT Framework

Actually, that is gameplay. Every bit of the game shown so far is all gameplay.

Can't see how that will work, only as a QTE sadly.

Oh well.

like rap said this will be a QTE fest. its cyber connect 2(Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm) and they love QTEs. im really worried about the gameplay because the naruto game have a not very deep fighting system. so you probably will run around and mashing one button.
Commented on 2011-04-13 21:59:58
This shit better not turn out like Ninja Crap (Ninja Blade).
Commented on 2011-04-13 22:16:22
i like QTEs but Ninja Blade have way to many and they are way to cheese. the GOW QTEs atleast are awsome. i want QTEs for the Boss Finisher in NG3 but only for that.
Commented on 2011-04-13 22:18:04
QTE is bullshit, period.

Games should be like Ninja Gaiden 2 or Castlevania Lords of Shadow.
Everything being manual attacks to the little health the boss has and let us finish it, even if it means climbing on some beast.

Let GoW be the only game in the genre with QTE.

castlevania had QTE's tho...albeit not button specific ones. still quick time events tho.

Yes but not exagerated like GoW or Ninja Blade, it was minimum to some extent, but yes it had it.
Commented on 2011-04-13 22:55:35
good one sath. thats what i want for NG3 bashing the boss until he have not much energy left and then finish him in a awsome QTE. but like i said, only that.

Should be like NG2.
Drain their life and with a press of a button, quickly finish them off stylishly.

Love the OTs in NG2, better bring them back in a new form in NG3.
QTE is old school and stupid IMO.

Agreed. I absolutely loved the OTs in NG2. They happened quickly enough not to interrupt the flow of the combat, and they just felt vicious. Great stuff!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (10 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (18 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Microsoft just needs to develop some new original IP and quit relying on Forza, Halo and Gears to carry them. Those franchises just don't have the pull they once had. (18 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @Moonwalker: If the Scorpio gives you the best console versions of multiplatform games and you're already into the XB1, then it's probably not a bad idea. After all, most games are multiplatform. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I absolutely love TES but at the same time I am exited to see a brand new IP from that studio. I'll just expect TES VI on Scorpio and Pro's successors, lol. (2 Hours ago)
