Asura’s Wrath demo angrily explodes onto XBLA and PSN today

Capcom is probably the busiest publisher of the start of the year. While most companies focused their releases at the end of the year, Capcom has two Resident Evils and Street Fighter X Tekken planned for the next dozen or so months. And then there’s the cinematic violence of Asura’s Wrath, which is coming to 360 and PS3 next month. Wondering just what this new franchise has to offer? Fortunately for you the demo just went live on Live and PSN.


The demo uses chunks of Episode 5 and 11 from the campaign, and if you couldn’t tell from the above trailer, that involves fighting on the moon and punching a guy that’s bigger than the Earth. We’d seen insanity like that in earlier previews and now you can give it a try. The title, developed by CyberConnect 2, comes to US stores February 21 and the UK Feb 24.

    Hmmm, seriously underwhelmed by the demo. Can't say I was particularly excited to begin with though. I'm sure some people out there will dig it though.

    Played the demo last night. To be honest, the 5th chapter is just a long QTE. Not only that, you repeat the same QTE until your "Burst" meter fills. The chapter 11 preview was actually enjoyable. Definitely not as interested as I was beforehand.

    After playing this demo I grew a beard.

    Just finished the demo, and holy shit... This is a day one buy for me. I honestly haven't felt this stoked since watching Dragonball Z as a kid. Fucking awesome, all that can be said. This is the DBZ game that should have been, crossed with the insanity that is Bayonetta, Fucking A. Well done, Capcom, well done.

    Yes! I've been waiting to play this!

    That was the least exciting video for a game I'm excited for I think I've ever seen. All that seemed to display was that, "Random shit happens!" And I just spent 30 seconds searching for a Captcha that was even pronounceable.

    I got it off of my JPN account and played it already. It's insane.

    Can I have a fap please (dammit)? I don't want to play this game, but I really, really want to see it.
  • Moondoggie1157 - January 10, 2012 1:31 p.m.

    I am so fucking excited, like Bayonetta + Deus Ex excited. Dowloading Demo.... NOW!
  • FlyinMachine - January 10, 2012 1:29 p.m.

    I.... Don't even know what to expect from seeing that.
