Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown Coming to Consoles

Not just any other fighting game will be up for download in early June.

Virtua Fighter 5 is regarded as one of the most technical fighters in existence, had a damn solid netcode (especially for its time), a good training mode and tutorials and all kinds of other features. Somehow it didn’t do so well regardless. Now, about 500 years after the original game’s release, the updated and improved Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is coming from the arcades to the Xbox 360 and PS3 via download at a damn-amazing price: 14.99$/1200 MS Points. That is so cheap that you should buy it even if you don’t care much for fighting games (I feel like I said a similar thing about Skullgirls, but it’s true!).

There is a bunch of paid DLC that will allow you to customize characters an whatnot but it’s all optional and does not affect gameplay at all.

    Getting a 3DS with Super Street Fighter IV recently has definitely given me the fighting game bug again. I remember the VF series being more technical and more fluid than the combo-em-up gameplay of the Tekken series, and hard as nails! I’m expecting taking a beating online when I get this in June.

    With the new Dead or Alive featuring some VF characters the trend to mash-up fighting titles seems to continue!
