Ahead of Tokyo Game Show next week Capcom is introducing a brand new playable character for their upcoming action game Asura’s Wrath. Yasha is Asura’s main rival and brother-in-law. When Yasha’s sister (Asura’s wife) was murdered during the assassination of Emperor Strada, Yasha turned against Asura and blamed him for her untimely death. Yasha will have to decide whether to take revenge on Asura or stand by his friendship and help him fight against the evil Shinkoku Army.
The latest screenshots show Yasha in the center of the action. With his speedy style players can expect some fast and intense combat. Further information on Yasha’s involvement will be revealed at next week’s Tokyo Game Show.
With unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction, Asura’s WrathTM will deliver a fresh take on the action gaming genre. 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. Cue relentless action as Asura finds himself facing off against numerous unique enemies, including planetary sized bosses, unleashing devastating and visceral attacks.
