Hey, remember Virtua Fighter ? It was a damn good fighting franchise…heck, still is.
Virtua Fighter 5 came out for the PlayStation 3 in early 2007 and now, fighting aficionados can play the definitive version of the game next summer. Sega has announced Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown , which is described as a "standalone downloadable title." It boasts new modes, arenas, and customizable character items, along with two extra fighters for the roster. We'll get sum wrestler Taka-Arashi (from VF3) and the debut of Jean Kujo.
Sega will also deliver online multiplayer action for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Final Showdown , and "little to no latency" for online matches. But if you'd rather play solo, the game will offer a new single-player mode that pits you against "an army of opponents." Yeah, the digital world continues to advance but this is great news, right? I'm not a big fighting fan so I'm assuming it's great news.
