Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown

Originally released in 2006 for arcades, Sega’s acclaimed Virtua Fighter 5 is making a comeback next week for PS4. Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is a ground-up remake, utilizing Yakuza’s Dragon Engine to deliver vastly improved visuals. This includes high resolution textures, details like sweat and redone stages. A new trailer highlights all of the improvements – check it out below.

Sega has also released the opening movie for the fighter along with a trailer showcasing more gameplay. Along with launching on June 1st for PS4 (free for PlayStation Plus subscribers), the fighter will also be available in arcades for Japan on June 2nd.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown offers more than just better visuals though. It offers new modes to facilitate Sega’s esports push for the title including a Tournament mode for up to 16 players, round-robin matches and the ability to watch matches in real-time. You can even use stamps while watching, likely as a means to “cheer” for different fighters. Stay tuned for more details on the title in the coming days.
