Virtua Fighter Dot Com
As part of an ongoing series of articles on Sega's rich arcade history, the official Sega Interactive website has published an article detailing Virtua Fighter's massive impact on the arcade market in the 1990s.
This past weekend saw the running of long time tournament series, Tokyo Bay Area Cup Volume 4. Check out the video archive for over 4 hours of high level VF5FS play straight outta Tokyo!
BURNING HAMMER! What has become Wolf's most iconic throw, and the most damaging move in the game of Virtua Fighter, is the Burning Hammer. While many people know this is based on a real professional wrestling move, there are probably a lot more signature moves in the series than you'd think!
Thank you everyone for such an amazing weekend. I hope NMTC will remain in your memories for years to come. Love you all! In here you'll find all results, videos, and shout-outs!
Its that time again! Proclaimed VF3tb World Champion Gorilla Kagesuke is hosting the second World Cup for Virtua Fighter 3 Team Battle at the famous Takadanobaba Mikado Game Center in Tokyo. Entrants are limited to 48 players and the promise of hype matches will surely be delivered, if the first World Cup was any indication!
Is this the closest we'll get to seeing Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown running on PC? Check out the footage below!
For those unaware, it sucks trying to find VF merch. Especially shirts. (5 year throwback...) If you blinked, you probably missed COSPA's run of VF shirts from 2015 which notably did not suck.
"Going to school was very boring, but practicing VF2 every day made him endure daily life, for a year he trained every day to finally beat his cousin". Courtesy of this translation by sonigo of a recent Denfami Interview with Tokido, you can't help but think that VF may have shaped Tokido into the fighter he is today, albeit in another fighting game.
A couple of week's back, Maximilian's YoVideogames channel on Twitch was streaming Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. The two things that struck me were the number of people who were watching live (over 4K), and the glowing praise Maximilian had for VF in general, and it's not often VF5FS gets that kind of exposure! So if you don't mind watching a some guys rumble their way through VF5FS while having a blast, then check out the Youtube archive below. It might even remind you of your first time playing?
