VF5 Final Showdown Released in Japan

The gang’s all here for the last round of VF5 fighting.

Yesterday saw the general release in Japanese arcades of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, which should be the last update in this chapter of Sega’s fighting franchise. New gameplay mechanics, new fighting moves, redone stages, new music, more sexy costumes and more freedom in composing those outfits and customizations are in store for arcade players in Nippon. If you see fighters duking it out in bikinis or Speedos, it’s not DOA, but VF people… how the world has changed!

Anyway, sadly this is still just Japanese arcades only. Though we’ve heard some encouraging words, we’re still waiting with bated breath for a console release of this gorgeous fighter. Really, with both Namco-Bandai and Capcom’s next fighters not due out until a couple of years from now, it’s to Sega’s advantage to release VF5FS on PS3 or Xbox360 and be THE shiny new 3D fighting game out. This is really a hot game and I would give a lot to see this on my TV in full HD. Let’s keep crossing our fingers.
