There are a lot of ways games attempt to break traditional moulds. Some invent new gameplay innovations, others require specific peripherals to "enhance" the experience, or many just shy away from what has been the norm for years.
The latter is the case with Asura's Wrath, an anime series essentially posing as a videogame. Yet we're actually fine with this. Because, there is enough gameplay here to let the game co-exist with action brethren like Bayonetta, Devil May Cry et al, and the story feels well and truly at home in the videogame realm. Also, planned DLC will actually feature Ryu from Street Fighter for a bit of one-on-one fighting action... so there's definitely some value here.
