Capcom reveals release date for Xbox 360 and PS3 action game, confirms Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to follow February 22.
Capcom only has to hold back its anger a few more months. The publisher today announced that it will direct Asura's Wrath at North American retailers starting February 21, 2012, with the PlayStation Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hitting the next day.
Following in the over-the-top footsteps of Capcom games like Devil May Cry and God Hand, Asura's Wrath is an eccentric action game from CyberConnect2, the studio behind the .hack series. The game follows the variably armed and very angry Asura as he pursues a group of seven "Guardian Generals" who killed his wife (framing him in the process) and absconded with his daughter.
February 22 marks the wide release of the PlayStation Vita, and Capcom's supporting the launch of Sony's second handheld with a portable version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Set for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 Nov. 15, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 builds on the vanilla version of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with a dozen new fighters, including comic crusaders like Ghost Rider and Dr. Strange, and Capcom icons like Phoenix Wright and Strider. The Vita version will contain the same content as its console counterparts, but will also make use of the system's touch screen and networking capabilities.
