WNF! It's Combo Time! Here's your chance for serious offline competition, casuals, and training for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Wednesday Night Fights is the premier weekly FGC event in the United States. If you live in Southern California and love to play VF5:FS, Injustice, TTT2, SFxT2013, or SS4:AE - you need to be here every Wednesday night. If you're not local, make sure to watch it on stream.
Since the Final Battle Audition in 2012, it has been relatively quiet on Japan's official Virtua Fighter website. Announced on June 5th, 2013 (for those living on the Eastern hemisphere), a VF.Talk Live and Kumite Event will be held on June 22nd, 2013, starting ~ 7 PM JST. The event features Asapon (aka Asami Shimoda, a voice actress, singer, and hostess of VF.TV), Sexy Saito (long time MC for VF.TV and events by Sega), and Shinjuku Jacky (one of the original Tetsujins).
VF.Talk Live will be an event to talk about "Virtua." As to what that actually entails is anybody's guess! It might be a local promotion of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown at Japan arcades; Or maybe it marks the beginning of events to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Virtua Fighter!? (Tips of the information came from Zero-chan and Reno)

This video by SHIFT, titled What is Evo?, explores the people, passion and hype that make up the Evolution Championship series, and in a broader sense, the Fighting Game Community. At 6:56 you'll get a brief glimpse at some of our very own VFers who participated at the SEGA run tournament at Evo 2012!
