As always, some meaning or context may have been lost in translation or interpreted incorrectly. Please check out the original article on 4Gamer (Japanese, writer Shinichi Yamoto, photos Ohsu Akira).

This post is a compilation of basic character tutorials by miyavi_ngos and they have been subtitled into English. Even though they are videos, this listing of content is valuable to people wanting to learn characters in VF5US.

The Virtua Expo 2022 is a collaboration between OReikhalKos and Tetsuko no Heya (Tetsuko's Room). It is a combination of online and offline events that includes same character tournaments and a 5on5 team tournament. Translated from Tetsuko no Heya's Website, "It may not be like the Shibuya Virtua Expos of the past, but I hope someday the Virtua Expo 2022 will be a step toward offline events in the future."

A new year so let's try again to summarize the VF tournaments/events around the world! We celebrate the new year with a massive 5-person online team tournament organized by Tetsuko's Room. January 2022 also marked the beginning of the 2nd Challenge Cup series and North America had its first major offline event at the Frosty Faustings!

Many of the events, but not all (apologies!) that occurred from August 6 to August 23. Whether the event is offline or online, small or large, please share your events that you organized, participated in, or watched!

For veterans of the VF series this is going down memory lane; and for a new generation of VF fans, a story worth telling. This is about the Tetsujins in the 1990s before the internet and the term "esports" was commonly known. Sega officially named Shinjuku Jacky, Kashiwa Jeffry, K.K. Yukikaze, Ikebukuro Sarah, Bunbunmaru, and Kyasao as Tetsujins. The latter 3 had a roundtable discussion with Den Faminico Gamer (in Japanese) about a week after the release of Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (Virtua Fighter esports in Japan).

In this episode of Harada's Bar, Harada continues his interview with VF5US/VFes producer Seiji Aoki where they talk about SEGA's marketing, how VF fans had given up hope like "people who have grown afraid of love", Aoki-san's commitment to developing the community within eSports, admission that the game wasn't 100% ready upon release and, oh, you know, a little thing like a Team Battle feature in an upcoming update! Also, did he just drop a cheeky hint at VF6 with the takoyaki!?

In a previous episode of Harada's Bar "Come, Virtua! I've waited 11 years!" Tekken director and producer Harada shared his thoughts on the Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (VF esports) announcement trailer ahead of its release, as well as his career-long history and rivalry with the Virtua Fighter series. In this episode, Harada interviews VF5US/VFes producer Seiji Aoki to discuss their impressions of the initial release, how it compared with expectations, the responsibilities of taking on such an important IP, and ... what's with the "800" on Aoki-san's shirt? :cautious:
