Asura’s Wrath is crazy, finger-punchingly good

It’s rare thing indeed when we take interest in a console title (especially since we’re mostly PC gamers here) but once in a while an upcoming game is unique enough to catch our attention. In the case of the upcoming game from Capcom, Asura’s Wrath, it’s the intense craziness and sheer WTF-ness that ensues during the entire game. Don’t believe us? Check out the trailer below.

In case you missed that, let us summarize it for you: a gigantic, planet-sized Buddha-like boss attempts to crush Asura with his finger. Seriously, this game feels like it was designed by a guy high on LSD, and we’re loving it. The game is part Devil May Cry, part Heavy Rain with its insane QTE (quick time events) and it may even make us buy a shiny new console when it comes out. The game will be available for the XBOX 360 and PS3, and will come out in 2012 (if the earth hasn’t imploded yet).
