Ahead of TGS next week, Capcom has introduced Yasha, one of the playable characters for Asura’s Wrath.

Yasha is Asura’s main rival and brother-in-law, who turned against Asura after the death of his sister – Asura’s wife – during the assassination of Emperor Strada. Yasha, still blaming Asura for the death, will have to decide whether to “take revenge on Asura or stand by his friendship and help him fight against the evil Shinkoku Army.”

Along with the announcement, Capcom has sent over some new screenshots showing Yasha. Further information pertaining to the character will be revealed next week at TGS.

Asura’s Wrath releases for Xbox 360 and PS3 in early 2012.
