SEGA announces Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Version B

It seems that the last major update for Virtua Fighter 5, known as Final Showdown wasn’t so final after all. SEGA has just announced a new update to their 2006 award winning fighting game, Virtua Fighter 5.

Not much is known about what this new update will bring to the game. But one detail we do have is that it isn’t going to support SEGA’s ALL.Net network. That means no more software updates, online multiplayer, no national leaderboards or the ability to save data on the cloud. It sounds like this is finally the ‘final’ update for Virtua Fighter 5, which turns a decade old come 2016.

The new update is set to hit Japanese arcades in March of 2015. Here is hope we get a update for the console versions, right?

    AM2 might be working on VF6 as we speak if this is the last update for Final Showdown. Their also still doing interviews on the 20th Anniversary website.

    it’s good to see some activity for Virtua Fighter, it was looking like a very sleepy 20th anniversary. here’s to VF6

  5. Hitrax says:

    Sega makes the VF series a one per generation outing, any other activity in the series are mainly updates of the original, so no surprise it’s been a while, this current generation of consoles is only just coming to it’s 1st year anniversary, so a VF6 will likely only just now be on the cards or at least soon will be.
