Asuras Wrath First Asuras Wrath DLC Episode Released; Three More Due By June

What do you give the man who has everything?  Well, so long as we agree to define “everything” as “anger management issues,” the answer appears to be “several downloadable episodes, including one about tearing Street Fighter characters limb from limb.”  Sounds good to me!

Available beginning today, Episode 11.5 is the first downloadable episode and provides players with an insight into what happens between two episodes from the full game. A week later on April 3, Episode 15.5 will arrive. Both offer a completely new artistic style taking their inspiration from the world of anime and will each be available to purchase for 160 MS points and $1.99 on PSN.

On April 24 we will be bringing players a bundle of four brand new action and rage packed episodes that continue the story of Asura’s Wrath and reveal an extra twist. The episodes bundle will be downloadable for 560 MS Points and $6.99 on PSN.

Arriving in May, the last of the Asura’s Wrath DLC promises Asura’s ultimate battles. Players will be able to take on Street Fighter favorites Ryu and Akuma. Asura will take on Ryu in a battle of the angriest on May 9 before competing against the strongest, Akuma, on May 16. Each of these DLC packs will cost 160 MS points and $1.99 on PSN.

Asura’s Wrath proved to be one heck of a wild ride in its original release just one month ago, though its final rating of 75% showed there were some notable bumps along the way.  These DLC packs sound like a great way to extend the experience for anyone who loved that base game, but we’ll be sure to weigh in if any of them turn out weighty enough to warrant a separate review!
