New playable character revealed for Asura’s Wrath

Asura’s Wrath | Yasha
Yasha's speedy style will give players a fast and intense combat experience.

Ahead of Tokyo Game Show next week, Capcom introduced a brand new playable character for their upcoming action game Asura’s Wrath.

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.

Asura’s Wrath will release for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2012.
