All Articles: Asura’s Wrath
Asura’s Wrath just came out this past Tuesday, and Capcom has already announced that there is Street Fighter DLC incoming for it. It looks like Asura will go head-to-head with Ryu and several other World Warriors.
But the Street Fighter pack will actually be the third DLC set released for Asura’s Wrath. Before that, Capcom is planning to release a pair of DLC expansions that fill in what happened between two of the game’s episodes.
This game already seems like a bundle of frenetic fun, and this DLC announcement just sweetens the pot. Pick up the game for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 today.
After a special pre-launch launch last week, Sony is ready to officially launch their next handheld, the Vita, in two different packages: The $249.99 Wi-Fi Edition and the $299.99 3G/Wi-Fi Edition. A handful of additional launch titles will follow it into stores this week including Army Corps of Hell, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, and Touch My Katamari.
If you prefer to play on a full-size console, there are several other big releases this week including Starbreeze’s first-person shooter reboot of Syndicate (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) and Capcom’s crazy brawler, Asura’s Wrath (PS3, Xbox 360).
Finally, Konami plans to release Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D on that other handheld device (the 3DS).
You can check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Asura’s Wrath is the latest game from Capcom and developer CyberConnect2. This absurdly over-the-top action game features everything from intense Quick Time Events to anime-esque “commercial break” loading screens. The frenetic action, varying gameplay elements, and extreme cinema scenes combine together to make something that, while it’s not unique, is still fun. Be sure to get a bag of ice ready, though, because you’re going to have what I like to refer to as “God of War elbow” in no time. (more…)
It looks like our return to Raccoon City will be delayed as Capcom has announced 2012 release dates for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Asura’s Wrath.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 20, 2012 with a PC release scheduled for later in the year. Capcom has also announced that their retelling of Resident Evil 2/3 from Umbrella’s viewpoint will be available in a Special Edition that includes a copy of the game, in a Steelbook case with exclusive art, stylized foil sleeve, Umbrella Security Service embroidered patch, Spec Ops Field Unit embroidered patch, and eight in-game bonus weapons.
Operation Raccoon City will be beaten to stores by action game Asura’s Wrath. Developed by CyberConnect2, the game will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 21, 2012.
These two titles join Capcom’s previously announced 2012 lineup including the Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (February 22), Dragon’s Dogma (early 2012) and Resident Evil Revelations (February 7).
