VF5FS’s New Boun-er, Stun Animation

Another stun/bound! effect adds to VF5FS’s combo potential.

Here’s another short vid that shows off some new animations in Sega’s currently-in-testing VF5 upgrade, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. This new stun animation is similar to the Bound! effect in Tekken 6– the attacker applies a certain move- usually a downward hitting attack like an axe kick- which slams the victim into the ground face-first with such force and speed that they are almost instantly bounced back upwards, pretty much stunned and out on their feet, before they crumple backwards to the ground.
While in this stunned state they can be combo’ed or hit again. You can even re-apply the stun move again at least one more time for even more hits. The result, combos particularly near the wall sucks up life bars like candy.

It’s a pretty interesting-looking stun, and just one of the many moves and new effects you can inflict on your opponents in this game. That is, if we all ever get a chance to play this game. We’re still waiting for the announcement of the console version, which I believe IS coming. Sega’s released more trailers for this game than all of the previous VF5 versions, and they ARE aware of gamers clamoring for this sexy brawler. I think it’s just a matter of time. I want my Final Showdown, please.
