If you missed out on this game, Asura is a China-developed MMORPG launching in a few months’ time, with a single-player version as well, with some different elements compared to the MMO version.
Created by Quantum Studios of Tencent Games, it can be seen as a “counter” against Diablo III. The next Closed Beta phase was announced yesterday, although undated now. A new trailer for the Dragonette class can be seen below.
For those of you who are wondering, there classes are indeed gender-locked, with the others being Spirit Monkey, Bull Demon, Rosha, Jade Fox and Deity Warrior. Yes, the game story revovles around Journey to the West, although a darker and more sinister retelling of the whole thing.
The trailers for each of the classes are below, and the game is shaping up very visually enticing with the skill effects and animations. This is 1 of the rare China-made games I will have to promote
