E3 Asura's Wrath
With a lead that looks like Street Fighter 4's Ryu character model redesigned to convey maximum young-man rage, and a throaty, grumbly dub voice to match, Asura's Wrath looks set to be Capcom's take on God of War style divine vandalism. This clip trades off betrayal narratives, but other trailers have demonstrated a six-armed, man-sized Asura trading blows with planet sized deities. Muscle explosion! With most of Capcom's internal staff apparently knuckling down on Dragon's Dogma, Asura's Wrath is being developed by CyberConnect2, a company that specialises in action adventure anime adaptations, like the .hack// and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series.
