Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown headed to XBLA and PSN in summer 2012
im sure more than a few people are going to be happy about this.
The pioneering Virtua Fighter series hasn’t seen a release in North America since 2007. Sega just announced plans to bring the latest version of Virtua Fighter 5 over — as a downloadable game. Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is based on the 2010 arcade version, which adds newcostume options, dynamic arenas and, most importantly, "a full overhaul of Virtua Fighter 5‘s mechanics, balance and animations."
19 playable characters will be available, including the sumo wrestler Taka-Arashi, who returns from Virtua Fighter 3. Sega is planning to release Final Showdown next summer.
