I'm not one that takes much stock in rumours, because, well, anyone can make up a rumour without any real consequence for being wrong. However, when the rumour comes from a somewhat credible source, then you can't help but take notice. NeoGAF user Verendus, an apparent insider to the Japanese Video Games industry recently posted that a "New Virtua Fighter game [is] to come" among a list of other gaming related rumours. This probably comes as no surprise to some given the recent end-of-life announcement of VF5FS Ver.B in Japanese arcades. Out with the old, and in with the new? Time will only tell!
I'm pleased to announce the new Media section now officially open on VFDC! This library has been initially curated by our Media Managers @BLACKSTAR and @oneida and contains a wide selection of VF related videos and playlists ranging from tournaments, challenges and tutorials. Read on for a full feature breakdown.
The time has come again for Virtua Fighter Relationship's (VFR) Beat-Tribe Cup, the biggest Virtua Fighter event of the year! While 2013 was the 20th anniversary of the Virtua Fighter game series, 2014 is the 20-year milestone for VFR, organized by Isamu Yamagishi. Last year, Sega awarded Yamagashi with the title "実況" (Jikkyou, roughly translated as "Live Broadcaster") for his contribution to the VF scene. Players will compete for the 15th Beat-Tribe Cup on November 23rd 2014. Read on for additional information and check the post in the coming days for more information on the "miracle festival"!
As part of the 20th Anniversary celebration, we take a look back at of all things Virtua Fighter. From its inception in Japanese arcades back in 1993, major events, console ports, off-shoot releases, publications and media, all the way through to the present day, relive (or discover!) some key moments and milestones in Virtua Fighter's proud and illustrious history.
A new arcade version of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown was announced today on Japan's official VF website. For several years, the arcade and console version of the game was Version A Revision 1. The announcement for Version B states that it will not be part of the ALL.NET system (aka the VF.Net online and cards system) and that further details will be released on transitioning from Version A Revision 1 to Version B. The announcement does not state any game balance changes or if any new features will be added to the game. Version B will be released in the arcades in March 2015. You can read an English translation of the announcement at Event Hubs.
