Hi Everyone! 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 customization items and costumes, you will be getting the definitive Virtua Fighter experience when the game is released in Summer 2012!

If you can’t wait that long, we’ve got a special treat for you. The SEGA team is rounding up the only existing VF5FS arcade cabinets in the US, and bringing them to PAX! We’ll have the cabinets up and running at Gameworks during PAX so come by and join us for an old-school arcade blowout!

Depending on when you come by, you might also be able to catch a member of the VF5 production team in action. We’re planning to give out some exclusive VF5FS items at PAX and Gameworks too!

If you can’t join us at PAX, please keep checking back for updates. This is just the beginning, we’re planning on providing much more information between now and launch.
