Long ago in the realm of Shinkoku, eight deities known as "The Eight Guardian Generals" battled to protect civilization from a destructive force known only as Gohma. During the victory celebration, the Emperor of Shinkoku is assassinated in a sinister plot and the blame is placed on Asura. In the middle of the commotion, Asura's wife is also murdered and his daughter kidnaped. With even his brother-in-law and rival Yasha turning against him, Asura is banished from Shinkoku.
Asura's Wrath finds Asura facing off against numerous distinct enemies, including planetary sized bosses. Through a mix of range attacks and visceral close quarter action players will fill Asura's 'Burst Gauge, ' unleashing the full force of his rage and delivering devastating attacks on those who betrayed him. Asura's story of revenge will be told through episodic gameplay, taking the player on a journey of highs and lows and adopting a structure that is similar to a TV drama series.
In a dramatic plot twist part way through the game, the action is turned on its head with players taking control of Asura's rival, Yasha, who embarks on his own mission against the very same enemies that had wronged Asura. What caused Yasha to change allegiances?Product Highlights
