New Playable Character Revealed For Asura’s Wrath

Ahead of Tokyo Game Show next week Capcome is introducing a brand new playable character for Capcom’s upcoming action game Asura’s Wrath. Check out the details, with screenshots, after the jump.


Yasha is Asura’s main rival and brother-in-law. When Yasha’s sister (Asura’s wife) was murdered during the assassination of Emperor Strada, Yasha turned against Asura and blamed him for her untimely death. Yasha will have to decide whether to take revenge on Asura or stand by his friendship and help him fight against the evil Shinkoku Army.

The latest screenshots show Yasha in the center of the action. With his speedy style players can expect some fast and intense combat. Further information on Yasha’s involvement will be revealed at next week’s Tokyo Game Show.

Join Asura and Yasha in their fresh take on action gaming when Asura’s Wrath releases for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2012.
