The Australian Virtua Fighter community is very proud to announce that VICTORY ROAD will return anew in 2017! After an outstanding year of community growth and improvement in the inaugural 2016 season, the Victory Road league is returning, bigger and better than ever. Beginning in February, this time the league will be Inter-State, being run in NSW, Victoria and Queensland!
I still remember the first issue of Sega Saturn Magazine I ever purchased. It was the Feb 1997 edition, emblazoned with incredible cover art of Akira Yuki, and the title ‘Fighters Megamix’ in the corner. A new fighting game from AM2 was just about the most incredible thing that a Sega fan could ask for in ’97 (and in my opinion, it still is), and this was the first sighting of something that would become a very special game in Sega’s history.
YouTube user Jed Hudson recently revealed some unused character models in the original Virtua Fighter. While you may have long known about the character Siba, who was later used in an official capacity in Fighters Megamix, the two other character models certainly warrant some discussion or speculation around what could have been. The SEGAbits channel have put together a little review on this new finding.
Famous VFer from Japan and long time friend of VFDC, Kamaage, along with Shironuko and Kissa were recently in Los Angeles for the League of Legends World Championship 2016. While in town, Kamaage posted a call out to any LA locals for a VF gathering and that call was answered by @adamYUKI, @L_A and @Shidosha. To keep things interesting, the "casual" matches had a twist. Push ups were involved. Lots and lots of push ups.
