ArenaNet has released a two-minute clip that gives us some background on the diminutive race, and the running time is heavy on the firm's one-of-a-kind concept art. Since this is also an intro cinematic, it lets us in on what awaits players who elect to roll as one of the floppy-eared cutelings in this weekend's beta as well as Guild Wars 2's forthcoming launch.
See the Asura for yourself after the break.
[Thanks to Michael for the tip!]
[Update: Anet has released a new blog post that offers a bit of insight into the creation of the Asura cinematic.]
