By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
After the positive feedback from our demo roundup on November 8th, we decided to repeat the process instead of writing individual articles for the three different demos that have been released today. First up we have a demo for Asura's Wrath, CyberConnect2's upcoming beat 'em up. The demo is 674.73 MB in size and can be downloaded from here. The game is due to be released on February 21st in North America, February 23rd in Japan and February 24th for Europe.

ASURA'S WRATH, the upcoming interactive cliffhanger-action game, lets you unleash your rage in two epic boss battles! Experience two of the game's episodes: In Episode 5, face off against the planet-sized Wyzen; and in Episode 11, clash with the powerful sword-wielding Augus on the surface of the moon! ASURA'S WRATH is a unique blend of action and drama. Immerse yourself in this unprecedented take on the action genre!


Secondly we have a demo for the upcoming sequel to the Wii-exclusive Grand Slam Tennis, Grand Slam Tennis 2. The demo is 1.08 GB in size and can be downloaded from here. The game is due to be released on February 10th in Europe and February 14th in North America.

Relive or rewrite the 2011 Wimbledon final match on Centre Court between the top 2 seeded players in the world, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Feel the true excitement and emotion of championship tennis with Grand Slam® Tennis 2 in this 3 game set. Total Racquet Control allows users to swing their racquet using the right stick, giving optimum feel and response. Play by yourself or against a friend.


Finally we have a demo for the upcoming sequel to Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2. The demo is 1.29 GB in size and can be downloaded from here, but unfortunately the demo is not available in all regions. Check your marketplace for availability. The game has already been released in Japan, but is due to be released on January 31st in North America and February 3rd in Europe.

The unfolding drama of FINAL FANTASY XIII, released in 2010 and selling six million copies worldwide, continues in FINAL FANTASY XIII-2. Explore a richly developed world featuring both new and familiar faces, and an exciting and highly developed strategic battle system. In this ongoing saga, the future is about to change...


All three of the demos are exclusive to Gold members for the duration of one week, before becoming available to all Xbox LIVE members thereafter.
