Sega Sets Up Virtua Fighter 20th Anniversary Website

Sega have erected a 20th anniversary website for their Virtua Fighter series of fighting games. A blog post on the site states that it will gradually be updated with a variety of information and content pertaining to the series’ history.

 

While Virtua Fighter itself hasn’t seen a brand new game in some time, the series still has a presence. Yakuza 5 allowed players to play a version of Virtua Fighter 2 within the game, and with support for online multiplayer at that.

 

Meanwhile, Virtua Fighter staples Sarah and Jacky Bryant are playable as guest characters in Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, and last year, Sega released an updated version of Virtua Fighter 5, titled Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.

    OMG PLEASE YES WITH DOA GUESTS! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • KingGunblader

    Is a Virtua Fighter 6 announcement imminent? I hope so, it’s my favourite fighting series.

    • yomachaser

      If they do I hope they take a deep breath and start over fresh as the run through all the versions of 4 and 5 got super stale after a while IMO.

      its about time for 6 i would say – fingers crossed!

    • BentoBlame

      If it’s true then I’ll go YYYEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! Jacky style.

  • Nitraion

    Hmm maybe they did reverse with DOA guest?
    anyway VF6 is about the time

  • LUCAS HERSH

    I can’t wait, i’m hoping for:
    -VF6 for next-gen systems
    -Portable VF for Vita or at least 3DS
    -Digital re-release of VF 1,3,4/Evo/FT
    -Official DOA Vs. VF

    oh thats nice i hope a new installment is in the works just recently started getting interested in this series

  • Hiro Oozora

    Hoping a new VF would put quest mode back at least. As cool as Final Showdown was I felt like I played some glorified demo.

  • Vyse Legendaire

    Lmao, I just rewatched that VF 1 intro and it brought back all of the Saturn memories. Super blocky graphics ftw, still looks great to me lol.

  • Erwin MadJelly

    Again I doubt the next VF will be on VITA too, I remember back then there were rumors of VF5 for PSP, but sadly it’s fake.

  • Rafael Martines

    Virtual Fighter 6 + Yakuza Characters + Shemue Characters?

  • fsfsxii

    Would VF4 on PS2 be a good entry to the VF series??
