Capcom has announced an Unreal Engine 3 Powered hack and slash title. It’s developed by CyberConnect2 for PS3 and Xbox 360, is called Asura’s Wrath and is said to redefine the genre.

Asura’s Wrath is an odd combination of Asian mythology and science fiction elements. It stars the titular Asura, a once revered god, but one that other gods have turned against, resulting in the loss of his godly powers and the start of another revenge driven story, where the very angry Asura uses his inner rage for his vengeance.

you’ll face off against huge armies and use powers to take them and anyone else standing in your way out, one of which is seemingly a huge Budda statue. Asura also seems to be rather tolerant to his body being impaled with lots of swords at once.

The structure of the narrative and the game are inspired by episodic dramas, being split into chunks, where gameplay and story work in tandem with one another.

Asura’s Wrath looks crazy, OTT and therefore interesting.
