    Well, Shenmue had games from the future in it (took place in ’86 but Ryo had a Sega Saturn). Nagoshi’s going to have a hard time topping that since Yakuza takes place in the present. So VF2 is a nice consolation. 😉

    SEGA West better not give up on bringing this title to the west. Games from Sega of Japan are always the best when it comes to this.

    It says an a small translated part of that site the following:…..

    “complete recording of Virtua Fighter 2 to 5 Yakuza recorded 2.1 and version 2.0 (2.1 is the version adjusted game balance) transplantation under the full cooperation of the staff of the time against 2P offline If you download the additional data on the PSN that can be”

    I take it that, aside from the bad translation, that it may be the actual arcade perfect version of Virtua Fighter 2, 1.1 and 1.2 as well?

    A VF1/VF2/VF Kids collection for XBLA would be most welcome.
