At this year's TGS, Evo Japan was announced for January 2018, and along with it were a number of Fighting Game Community partnerships. Among them is VFR, known for running the infamous Beat Tribe events over the decades of VF's lifespan. While the official games have yet to be announced, this is a pretty good sign for things to come.
Ten years ago today on July 12 2006, Virtua Fighter 5 was officially released in Japanese arcades. Where were you 10 years ago? Did you play "vanilla" VF5 in the arcade? At home? If you were 10 years too early back then, I guess you should be ready by now right? Happy 10 years, VF5!
