There have been rumors flying around last year about Virtua Fighter 5 returning to consoles again, with all the arcade upgrades. Play Magazine teased that they will be covering a return of a huge fighting franchise. The last game came to consoles in 2007, so it’s been about 4 years. That is a lifetime in the console market.
Other big fighting games ruled out: Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, King of Fighters, Tekken, SoulCalibur, and Mortal Kombat.
Game it could be: Virtua Fighter, Killer Instinct, Bloody Rawr, or Guilty Gear.
The games that I listed in ‘ruled out’ are franchises that have announced new titles recently. Virtua Figher hasn’t had one, Killer Instinct has been rumored and Arc System recently got the rights back to Guilty Gear. But is Guilty Gear that big of a franchise?
What do you think?
