With Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown out today for PS4 and representing more of an esports approach to the original’s mechanics, Sega has also announced some DLC. The Legendary Pack will also launch today for $10 and contains lots of cosmetics. These include 2,000 customization items, soundtracks from across the series, 36 Spectator Stumps and even the option to play as the original Virtua Fighter models.
This is in addition to 19 character costumes and the original game’s UI and stages. It’s quite a bit of value especially since Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown will be available free for PlayStation Plus subscribers in June. The fighting game is also launching on PlayStation Now.
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is more than just a simple port of the 2006 classic. It features completely revamped stages, improved character models and textures, and smaller details like sweat on characters. Sadly, it won’t have rollback netcode for its online multiplayer. Stay tuned for more details when it goes live today.
