An Asura's Wrath demo is now available on Xbox Live. A PS3 version should be available later today after the PSN update. You should download it as soon as possible. This is not a joke. There has never been a more serious post on Joystiq. Do it.

We saw Capcom's bizarre CyberConnect2-developed action game Asura's Wrath back at E3, and JC wrote up an excellent preview at the time.
