The lights are on
Capcom's upcoming Asura's Wrath is an unapologetically over-the-top take on the action genre, as these new screens demonstrate with explosions, overpowered attacks, and glowing-eyed muscly dudes.
Most of the screens in the gallery below feature Asura, the six-armed protagonist who looks unreasonably mad about something. Then again, the game is called Asura's Wrath, not Asura's Summertime Picnic, or Asura's Afternoon Nap, so I guess his anger is justified. Beyond that, I have no idea what's going on in these screens, but our previous hands-on time with the game proved entertaining to say the least, so stay tuned for more coverage of Asura's Wrath from this year's Gamescom. In the meantime, take a gander at the new pics below.
[UPDATE]: You can now watch the Gamescom trailer for the game. It's even more confusing than the screens alone:

(sigh) I don't understand... This game looks confusingly awesome.
...what did I just watch?
-1 for improper use of "epic," Jeff.
Can I say it? I mean, seriously, can I say it? Okay, I'm just gonna say it.
That...was bananas. I'm loving how over-the-top the action in this game looks, even if that trailer felt like something out of a corny anime. Still, I'm very interested. Despite being disappointed with Capcom's continued cancellation of Mega Man games this year, they've already won me over for 2012. Two new IPs and Street Fighter X Tekken? Yea, that'll do. The new Devil May Cry trailer was even kinda cool.
HE CANT BEAT GOKU!
I have absolutely no idea what happened in that video, but it was awesome. That's probably the most anyone has been stabbed by one sword ever, all 1000 miles of it.
I really want this confusing game!!
