The article notes that it does look like Street Fighter 4's style, but assures them that it's an Asura's Wrath in-game screenshot and not the other way around. They state that this DLC will be released February 21st (North America) and 23rd (Japan).

What's going on? I'm so confused.

Akuze said on February 16, 2012 at 8:47 p.m.

Wait, wait... so there's a level in Asura's Wrath where it takes the form of a 2D fighter, complete with SSF4 overlay and you fight Ryu?

That's just crazy enough to be AWESOME.

What's Asura's Wrath? Like a God of War game?

Jookey said on February 16, 2012 at 8:52 p.m.

Aww, a little disappointed that this isn't for AE D:

Mr. Rik0, that'd have to be one great(and detail oriented) modder As Asura's face is custom art, The detail on Asura himself is wayyyyyyyyyyyy detailed and the gauges are awesome!

#19
jhayze said on February 16, 2012 at 9:18 p.m.

lol @ sagat stage (sf2) throw back!
and no i dont think this pic is fake!
besides its just a dlc bonus for asura's wrath!
but i would want asura in umvc3 instead of sfxt!

#20
Ex_Ein said on February 16, 2012 at 9:21 p.m.

Scorpion if you're going off the demo, the Demo only shows the QTE heavy boss fights, the normal gameplay is a mix of the second boss fight and god of war.

#21
Ex_Ein said on February 16, 2012 at 9:23 p.m.

Half Sagat Throw back/Asian religious reference.

#22
jhayze said on February 16, 2012 at 9:24 p.m.

#25
AdaWongLover5 said on February 16, 2012 at 9:45 p.m.

Nothing against Ryu but I'm pretty sure Asura has this in the bag.

#26
im2hot4ya said on February 16, 2012 at 10:13 p.m.

asura would definitely work well in sfxt

#27
shadow050 said on February 16, 2012 at 10:17 p.m.

proof that ryu is actually God tier.... lol

#28
LongSky said on February 16, 2012 at 10:21 p.m.

Give me this NOW! I want Akuma vs Asura. The battle of RAGE!!

#29
MrPavy said on February 16, 2012 at 10:23 p.m.

BIONIC ARRRRRRRRMMMM!!

#30
shadow050 said on February 16, 2012 at 10:29 p.m.

question:
how the hell will Ryu survive a fight with a guy who killed a guy who was bigger than the earth - with his fists? a guy who was stabbed from the moon all the way to earth and still lived and defeated the opponent?

answer:
He's Ryu.

response:
Oh... true.

lol.... seriously, this match is just hilarious to me, and i think there's undertones that speak to what people truly have to deal with when facing ryu. or maybe this is Asura vs Ryu's Legend... lol, no winning that Asura...

in any case, like i said, this is hilarious. i pictured Asura fighting Kratos or Dante... never Ryu lol

#31
gqazndood said on February 16, 2012 at 10:34 p.m.

sh!ts so fake its not even funny....

good to know i'm not the only person suspicious of it being fake lol

#35
Quezacoatl said on February 16, 2012 at 11:25 p.m.

This game is too much.

Too much epicness.

#36
BumbleeBeeCody said on February 16, 2012 at 11:41 p.m.

More like
ROCKET PUNCH!

#37
rakuko said on February 16, 2012 at 11:43 p.m.

heh, the cool different mode reminds me of KH Re:Coded's special modes (2D platformer, shmup, JRPG). i hope other games do similar things to make the gameplay more interesting at times.

#38
JrockEclipse said on February 17, 2012 at midnight

You see how cool it is when you get a NEW STAGE.... this is what ssf4 ae 2012 needed to keep it up...

#39
gensnroses said on February 17, 2012 at 12:31 a.m.

Would've been a cool game if it wasn't one of those "Start out with infinite power, lose all powers, slowly gain all lost powers again" games.

Every game like this has this scenario and it just seems it's happening again. Assassin's creed, God of War etc. always the same sh*t.

#40
yes4me said on February 17, 2012 at 12:51 a.m.

Maybe Asura is a guest character for X360

#41
IoriaM said on February 17, 2012 at 12:58 a.m.

but ryu lol!??!?!??!!?! XD maybe Akuma was better I think

#42
SomeDude said on February 17, 2012 at 1:04 a.m.

@40 true, don't forget Metroid tho..

Ofcourse they gonna pick Ryu,he's the face of the SF-franchise.
Akuma is just a clone character and people unfamiliar with SF won't recognize Akuma.

#43
Skeez said on February 17, 2012 at 1:17 a.m.

Ryu's fought gods before, guys. Gill, Thor, Ammy, Shuma, Dormammu, hell, GALACTUS.

I think he stands a chance.

Asura looks so f@cking tight.
Hope they bring him as dlc for SFxT.
F@ck the dumb ass retards complaining about extra characters.

#47
GrimEater said on February 17, 2012 at 2:13 a.m.

More like Asura in SSFVI AE.

Asura for X Tekken NAO!

I'd be happy to see an Asura DLC costume for Evil Ryu

Oh my god.

danny2times said on February 17, 2012 at 3:35 a.m.

Pretty cool guys, imo oni should be there instead. Ryu is a creepy little freak!

Dear ono, since you hate Alex and karin I've vowed to punch you in the stomach should we cross paths. Fyi you goofy little troll.

#52
SaikyoRyu said on February 17, 2012 at 3:39 a.m.

That's pretty cool. Seeing 2 characters with visibly different game mechanics (well super gauges and stuff anyway :P) is interesting. I vaguely remember blaze blue had that and it would be nice to see it crop up in other games.

#53
Dundle said on February 17, 2012 at 3:42 a.m.

DLC in a game before it's even out? I'll be pirating it, screw capcom crapping on their fans.

#54
RedWaltz79 said on February 17, 2012 at 4:08 a.m.

@54

Tons of companies announce their DLC plans before the release of their games. Stop being a drama queen. You are just looking for an excuse to be a thief and criminal.

#55
Doopliss said on February 17, 2012 at 4:20 a.m.

Besides, it might be free for all we know, they have no mention of the price.

#56
tardie said on February 17, 2012 at 4:21 a.m.

Does'nt this feels also like some sort of "teaser"? For maybe upcoming DLC-chars AND levels in AE v.2012?

I hope so.

#57
Nago said on February 17, 2012 at 4:40 a.m.

Being Capcom related, I can't help but feeling like I'm getting trolled and that they have other plans for this.

#58
Unknown_Unknown said on February 17, 2012 at 4:43 a.m.

@45 What are you talking about? Ryu has come to blows with Akuma and survived. So how is Akuma so much more godlier that Ryu wouldn't hold his own?

#59
JesterGame23 said on February 17, 2012 at 4:53 a.m.

Asura for Cole's Partner in SFxT!

#60
reyray0709 said on February 17, 2012 at 6:11 a.m.

going on record in stating that asura WILL be in the next edition for marvel.

#61
Street_Fighter_OG said on February 17, 2012 at 6:25 a.m.

This game is sick. The graphics NICE as well with insane game play. They read do need to add Asura to UMVC3.

#62
viktorkain said on February 17, 2012 at 6:46 a.m.

absolutely epic.... Asura for UMVC3 .... he just fits that games format so much more than SfXt or AE2012. I would however have a nerdgasm if he wound up in all three.

#63
SAMURAI said on February 17, 2012 at 6:48 a.m.

Let's go Capcom, make this DLC for SF4. New stage & character.

#64
clumsywolves said on February 17, 2012 at 7:45 a.m.

quick time events invalidate video game legitimacy

#65
shadow050 said on February 17, 2012 at 8:39 a.m.

@ 40

y'know, they do games like that so that it makes more sense when you finally reach the end version of the character and they're so highly powered. it makes it seem like the amazing powers weren't just a**pulled or simply "granted" to the character. the early glimpse of their power also serves as an incentive for the player to push through and get stronger. sure, mystery can go a long ways in giving that incentive too, but the approach of giving everyone a glimpse has a better response rate.

DarthEnderX said on February 17, 2012 at 8:49 a.m.

All I can say is thank GOD it's not them adding a stupid guest character to SF4 all of a sudden.

#67
trufenix said on February 17, 2012 at 9:22 a.m.

probably just a qte. this game looks weak.

It could be a movie for all I care, still looks awesome.

#71
Unknown_Unknown said on February 17, 2012 at 10:55 a.m.

@69 if Ryu can access the satsui no hado and if Akuma even considers Ryu worthy enough to challenge him let alone be killed by him, surely he's more than some mere karate kid.

#72
MightyAfro said on February 17, 2012 at 11:36 a.m.

@65 how do qt events invalidate a game? have ya actually played the demo?

#73
Street_Fighter_OG said on February 17, 2012 at 12:09 p.m.

@shadow050 #28: LOL god tier. I guess this does confirm. There gonna give him a dragon punch that will launch the person into the sun. LoL

#74
RestInProtein said on February 17, 2012 at 12:42 p.m.

would of prefered him to be a guest character in a street fighter game

#75
therealist1991 said on February 18, 2012 at 4:33 a.m.

they should also put Gene from godhand in there
and maybe sagat,akuma and adon.

#76
TheMasterPlayer said on February 20, 2012 at 7:17 a.m.

so is this a side game in asura's wrath where you can play vs? hmm.. if so then i want me some Dante, Akuma, Dimitri, Sagat, and Nemesis in this! throw in some special guest characters as well like Yujiro and Baki! lol...

#77
NumbahHwan said on February 21, 2012 at 2:15 p.m.

My Guess Capcom vs SNK 3. they are both capcom characters and asuras super meter is from his game and ryus meter is from his game.
