Since both Virtua Fighter and Tekken dominated 3D fighting games in the 90s, fans have been wondering when the company would create a Tekken x Virtua Fighter cross-over fighting game. Officially, neither game has crossed over in an official game, until now. Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown breaks that trend with the DLC “Tekken 7 Collaboration Pack” which is set to launch on June 1st.
This Tekken 7 Collaboration Pack includes:
- 19 Tekken 7 outfits: When you equip these outfits, character customization will be disabled.
- 20 full Tekken 7 background music tracks.
- Tekken 7 UI interface
- Two Tekken 7 collaboration titles: These titles are added into the “other” category when selecting titles.
While this isn’t a full fledge new crossover title, its nice to finally see an official Tekken cameo in some form within Virtua Fighter and maybe will open up the discussions for something larger in the future.
