Not much has been heard on the Virtua Fighter franchise in some time with the last release being in 2007. But coming next summer, XBLA will see a whole new challenger in the ring with Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. The game will have redone physics, mechanics and animations with new modes and two brand new characters. “With Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, we get to bring the ultimate expression of competitive one on one gaming to console players in one perfect package.” said Haruki Satomi, VP of digital business at Sega America and Sega Europe. Be sure to keep a lookout on this upcoming brawler next year.
