On this day in 2010, SEGA released Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown for Japanese arcades, followed by a international console release two years later for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To celebrate this occasion, I compiled a blog on Destructoid looking back at the journey with VF5FS and how it still holds to this day compared to other modern-day fighting games. Happy 10th Anniversary, VF5FS!

In the second episode of RedBull's Playing Fields documentary series, the focus switches to the Japanese Arcade Culture. As many of you will know, Virtua Fighter has its history deeply rooted in the Arcade scene so it's with no real surprise that this episode shares an anecdotal, and somewhat troubling(!!!), story relating to Virtua Fighter. Additionally, there are interviews with arcade managers, pro gamers and industry reps on their thoughts of the current state of the arcade scene in Japan. Highly recommended!

I've been working on this little "AWSVF" project over the past few days, taking the lead from the Marvel community. I've finally have been able to test it both on the West Coast and on the East Coast (well, Ohio) and it works pretty well. I put together a little FAQ to get you up to speed!

SEGA have just announced a new mini game console, the Astro City Mini! The Astro City was a popular arcade cabinet model back in the early 90s, which was commonly found throughout arcades in Japan, and most of Asia. The Astro City was in a long line of "City" branded arcade cabinets by SEGA, so it's only fitting that the first "mini" homage also includes another first -- the original Virtua Fighter! Read on for more details on the Astro City Mini and a list of games so far!

If you've watched any tournament streams from Japan, then chances are you've enjoyed the services provided by Game Newton -- a popular arcade in Tokyo, Japan which is the home of many strong Fighting Game communities including 3rd Strike, and of course our beloved Virtua Fighter. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recent isolation and shutdown laws in Japan, Game Newton's future is looking bleak! But there's something you can do to help...
