Ryu Set to Feel Asura’s Wrath

Right, games industry! Let’s just stop this now, shall we? Cameos in video games always used to be occasional quirks which we found amusing. These days, it seems like we’re expected to believe that every video game takes place in the same universe.

Fighting games are the worst for it, of course. It seems like you’re not allowed to just tornado punch someone in the ear anymore without it being someone you’ve previously flown an X-Wing against, stabbed a merchant with or ruthlessly murdered family members as. Fighting games can’t even keep comic book characters out!

Well, here’s the latest little bit of crossover news. Ryu, the guy in the white pyjamas from Street Fighter, is going to drop in on everyone’s soon-to-be (second?) favourite god-murdering psychopath – Asura. The screenshot below is not Asura appearing in Street Fighter, although the screen furniture would lead to that conclusion. It’s Ryu dropping into Asura’s Wrath as future DLC.

No details are known yet but it looks like a very good fit, except for the fact that one of these characters fights interplanetary battles against gods and the other one regularly got me beaten up by a fat Japanese guy and a skinny Chinese girl with pigtails.

  1. Well that doesnt look anything like the bits of AW i played.

  2. “The screenshot below is not Asura appearing in Street Fighter, although the screen furniture would lead to that conclusion. It’s Ryu dropping into Asura’s Wrath as future DLC.”

    Sure?

    • Yeah that’s definitely not a screenshot of Asura’s Wrath!

    • yep, more details from Capcom later, apparently.

  3. And i’ll bet it will cost an arm and a leg. If i find out it is already on the disc and all we are paying for is the key to unlock it, i won’t be happy. I will be forced to Haduken Capcom’s headquarters.

    I think Capcom has released the wrong screenshot as that seem to be closer to a Street Fighter game that has AZURE in. Isn’t Azure’s effing wrath(They should call it that in the adverts in an aggressive tone) a hack and slash or did Tuffcub get the wrong preview code?

    • or at least an arm in Asura’s case. ^_^

  4. So is Asura’s Wrath turning into a fighting game? This makes no sense…

  5. Indeed – As with others, i am baffled by this. That screenshot does look a hellova lot like SF.

    I will wait to hear more before jumping to conclusions of course, but if it is just a boss battle against ryu which has been done in a SF format, i don’t think that’s worth releasing as DLC!

  6. clearly ryu is a boss and the screen changes to suit that

  7. I love cameos, not necessarily as DLC though. I’m not a fan of DLC altogether but that’s a different story.

  8. No! ‘Nuff said. Just plain No!

  9. It makes no plausible sense to pit a God-Killer against a World-Class martial artists with an afinity for tornado kicking,super-upercutting and tossing fireballs from his hands. Dumb,Dumb, Dumb!!
