Capcom recently sent this new photo to IGN. No, this isn’t a picture of the newest guest combatant in Street Fighter IV. It’s actually a picture of a special DLC battle in Asura’s Wrath, Capcom’s upcoming action game. Yes, Asura will be able to take out all of his rage on Ryu who appears to come complete with all his moves, a super bar, and even an ultra-meter. However, Asura will be forced to take on Ryu in his home-turf: a 2D fighting game.

The DLC will release February 21st in North America and February 23rd in Japan. Hopefully this also means we will see Asura making some appearances in fighting games in the future.
