Long ago in the realm of Shinkoku, eight deities known as The Eight Guardian Generals battled to protect civilization from a destructive force known only as Gohma. During the victory celebration, the Emperor of Shinoku was assassinated in a sinister plot and the blame was placed on Asura. In the middle of the commotion, Asura’s wife was also murdered and his daughter kidnapped. When everyone turned against him, Asura was stripped of all his powers and banished to Earth. Awakened after 12,000 years, Asura vows revenge on all those who have betrayed him.
Asura's Wrath transcends the traditional distinction between gameplay and cutscenes through seamless, player-controlled narrative. Even in cinematic sequences the player can control Asura, directly affecting the gameplay and making Asura's Wrath a truly unique experience.
