Asura’s Wrath has been called a God Of War clone, so you watch the trailers below and tell us what you think about that.
Here is a summary of what Asura’s Wrath is all about (IGN.com):
Inspired by Asian mythology and fused with science fiction, Asura’s Wrath aims to redefine the action genre by delivering unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction. 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. By channelling his inner rage, Asura is now able to unleash devastating attacks and wreak havoc as he battles against the deities who have wronged him and their earthly forces. Inspired by episodic dramas, Asura’s Wrath is split into distinct sections with gameplay and narrative unfolding as one and building to a final climatic conclusion.
Asura’s Wrath will be in stores February 21st for the U.S., February 23rd in Japan and February 24th in Europe.
This next trailer picks up directly where the first one ended.
