Virtua Fighter Dot Com

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.
I chose Virtua Fighter and Sarah Bryant.

Hopefully choosing Virtua Fighter will help the series get more demand.
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.
A couple of months ago we learnt that VF5FS was making its debut on the PS4 console, via Yakuza 6. According to this recent tweet by Orange Man (@oojinjahime), it also has online play!
WatchMojo recently published a Virtua Fighter vs Tekken comparison video. It compares both series in the categories of story, characters, legacy, lasting appeal and combat. What do you think of their assessment?
Remember when this happened? Well, this just happened, too.

At this year's TGS, Evo Japan was announced for January 2018, and along with it were a number of Fighting Game Community partnerships. Among them is VFR, known for running the infamous Beat Tribe events over the decades of VF's lifespan. While the official games have yet to be announced, this is a pretty good sign for things to come.
Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown will be playable in the Yakuza 6 on PlayStation 4. There is a two-player mode, too!
