Asura Blade: Sword of Dynasty

Also know as: アシュラブレード

The Asura series, by a little known company called Fuuki, consists of Asura Blade and Asura Buster, two very good weapons-based 2D fighters that were only released on arcades. Being released in the late-90s, they were more than a bit late to the fighting game gravy train of the years before, leading them to be greeted by little more than apathy. Arcade boards are hard to come by and arcade cabinets are even scarcer. Fuuki did not make many other games besides the Asura series. Even though the company came and went in the blink of an eye, their games are surprisingly decent, Darkstalkers-like games with deep, but easy to grasp systems and very cool character designs. There isn’t technically much to set it apart from more prominent titles, but both they’re smooth and attractive games.
