Ryu, Akuma headline Asura's Wrath DLC

Street Fighter favorites take on Capcom's latest creation in May add-on packs; April plays host to additional DLC drops, including four-episode epilogue for $7.


Ryu and Akuma have never been shy about crossovers, and the pair will be capping off Capcom's downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 action beat-'em-up Asura's Wrath.

Capcom today detailed its remaining slate of Asura's Wrath DLC, culminating in May with a pair of add-ons that will pit Asura first against Ryu and then against Akuma in bare-handed (but many-armed) combat. The Ryu battle will arrive May 9, with Akuma's DLC debut set for May 16. Each pack will cost $2 (160 Microsoft points).

Before those matchups take place, Asura has a handful of optional adventures to punch his way through. This week and next, Capcom is launching half-step episodes for $2 (160 Microsoft points) that fill in gaps between chapters from the base game. The meatiest of the content arrives April 24, with a four-episode epilogue for the game that Capcom is using to "continue the story of Asura's Wrath and reveal an extra twist." Set after the events of the base game, the bundle will cost $7 (560 Microsoft points).
