Virtua Fighter Best Tracks + One is a new VF album being released on 18th February 2015 with a selection of music from the VF series, all remastered. The bonus track is a remix of Ai Ga Tarinaize, the 2nd opening theme to the VF anime, with new recording for the vocals. There are 32 tracks altogether, but this would be one of those albums which leaves you wanting to go buy all the other soundtracks. Looks like the hype train is on the move...
An FAQ for the upcoming release of VF5FS Ver.B was released on SEGA's official VF site today.
