Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown

Virtua Fighter is one of the biggest, most important fighting franchises of all time, and its legacy has endured even when the series itself has been on ice for prolonged period. Which is why, of course, it’s so good to see it back again. No, we don’t have a new game in the series to play even now, but the recently released Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown has remade a beloved entry in the series. But what exactly does that mean for the future of Virtua Fighter as a whole?

In a recent interview with Famitsu (via Siliconera), chief producer Seiji Aoki spoke about just that. According to Aoki, Sega hasn’t yet made any decision regarding a Virtua Fighter 6 (even though he personally would like to work on a new game in the series).

“Nothing has been decided yet regarding Virtua Fighter 6, so I cannot make any statement,” Aoki said. “But if you ask me whether I want to create it or not, I do want to create it.”

As you’d expect, Aoki added that one of the purposes Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is going to serve will be to judge interest in and demand for the series, which should inform any decisions about its future.

“This title [Ultimate Showdown] will let us know whether there are demands and potentials for Virtua Fighter,” Aoki said. “We want to hype it up so it can connect to the next one.”

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, meanwhile, is available on PS4. For PS Plus subscribers, it’s going to be available for free until the end of July.
