Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Virtua Fighter
Sega has released a new trailer for the three AM2 fighters that were recently released on Live Arcade and PSN, Fighting Vipers, Sonic the Fighters, and Virtua Fighter 2. The brawlers are available for $4.99/400 MS Points each and have been updated to support online play.
Sega continues to harken back to the days of yore with three upcoming re-releases from their famed AM2 division: Fighting Vipers, Sonic the Fighters, and Virtua Fighter 2. The trio is set to launch on PSN on November 27 and on Live Arcade on November 28 for $4.99/400 MS Points. All of the games will support online multiplayer, and details on each of the brawlers can be found below.
Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, a tweaked, refined, and beefed-up revision of 2007’s Virtua Fighter 5, is now available on Live Arcade and PSN. The download-only release adds two extra brawlers to the roster, Jean Kujo and Virtua Fighter 3’s Taka-Arashi, numerous engine tweaks, Training Mode, Replay Mode, and the eight-player Online Room Match Mode.
Virtua Fighter will be reentering the arena soon with Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. Sega sent word today that the download-only brawler will be available on June 5 on PSN and on June 6 on Live Arcade. The 1200 MS Point/$14.99 release will be the latest version of the 2007 fighter, including subsequent tweaks to the engine plus Training Mode, Replay Mode, eight-player Online Room Match Mode, and two additional characters: Jean Kujo and Virtua Fighter 3’s Taka-Arashi.
Virtua Fighter 5 might be going on four years old for both the 360 and PS3, but that doesn’t mean Sega’s done with it. Going the download-only route, the critically acclaimed fighter will return via Live and PSN next summer as Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.
