Prepare yourself for a battle of epic proportions! Capcom has released Lost Episode 1 of Asura’s Wrath for the PS3 and Xbox 360. In this episode, Asura finally meets his match as Street Fighter’s Ryu challenges him to a duel. As you’ll soon see, this DLC is pretty awesome. CyberConnect2 did a great job incorporating Ryu into the game while staying true to Street Fighter’s roots. A mission list with multiple challenges unlocks after completing the episode, so there’s quite a bit of replay value as well. Not bad for two dollars.

Lost Episodes 1: At Last, Someone Angrier Than Me is now available on PSN and XBL for $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points). The Akuma DLC for Asura’s Wrath is scheduled to release on May 15th for the same price. It’s worth noting that you can play this DLC even if you haven’t started the main game yet.

Isaac, also known as Delriach in the gaming community, is a member of the Chicago fighting game scene and regularly attends weekly gatherings at the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield Illinois. Although he is a fan of all fighting games, he primarily focuses on Mortal Kombat and has competed in numerous tournaments since its release. When he's not playing fighting games he's usually writing about them and has been doing so for the past three years for publications such as TheSixthAxis. Isaac tends to travel with a mini Chun-Li toy and frequently takes pictures of her on epic adventures.

    His motives are totally different from Akuma. 

    Asura had a teacher that was a more hedonistic version of Akuma, who only lived to fight, eat, fight, drink,fight, fuck, fight.  He literally does exposition like this in the game. 

    Asura then in the end shows he doesn’t fight for the sake of fighting but instead just wants to protect his daughter, and his rage comes from those who hurt his daughter. 

    He’s very different from Akuma actually. It;’s not in Asuras charecter to be like: :”YOUR A MARTIAL ARTIST? LOL TIME TA KILL YA!”
