January 22, 2007 - Today SEGA announced that http://ps3.ign.com/objects/641/641054.html has gone gold for the PlayStation 3 and is being sent to the manufacturing plant. PS3 owners can look forward to picking up the system's first fighting game on February 20.

Developed by the AM R&D Development No.2 team (of Shenmue, OutRun, and Space Harrier fame), Virtua Fighter 5 is a conversion of the arcade game with additional Quest Modes, character customization options, and two new characters. The level of visual detail and character animation has been upped to advanced levels, with next-generation lighting and detail on the fighters and environments.
