To quote: All of us at SEGA are excited to share some great news for fighting fans and combat connoisseurs.
The Virtua Fighter 5
series has been growing and expanding in arcades since its release, and we wanted to share the latest version with our dedicated PS3 fans.
Yes - we're bringing the latest version of the Virtua Fighter 5 series to PSN next summer!
This latest version is called Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown or "VF5FS," and it introduces a fistful of new features to this time-tested fighter, including completely rebalanced mechanics, timing, animation and a brand-new dynamic arena system.
We're also introducing two new characters to the roster: Sumo wrestler Taka-Arashi will make his big return from VF3 and karate expert Jean Kujo will join the VF series for the first time. Best of all, VF5FS now includes online play via PSN, engineered to allow fast-paced combat with little to no latency.
Mixing all that with a huge variety of character...
