Last Updated on February 3, 2023. Challenge Cup 1.3 Finals for Season 1 will take place this weekend, February 5, 2023! This is part of Sega's official online and offline events for Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (Virtua Fighter eSports in Japan). Season 1 features three Challenge Cups and ends with a Pro player event in 2023.
This interview of Harada and Aoki took place in June 2022, published in September 2022. Lots of interesting comments were made in the interview. Here are some notes taken from the article. 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).
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."
Update April 1, 2022 - Harada's Bar invited both VF5US Chief Producer Seiji Aoki and pro player Tokido to discuss a variety of topics. The first episode was released on March 26th and the second episode on April 2nd.
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!
DrScottnik has produced a wonderful video showcasing the VF community, and how it has thrived since the release of Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown. Many notable community members from around the world participated in this mini documentary to share their experiences and provide their unique take on all things Virtua Fighter -- check it out!
Last Updated: March 15, 2022 Update - The 2nd Challenge Cup is Sega's official VF5US (Known as VFeS in Japan) events for Japan running from January to March 2022! The Finals for the FREE and U22 categories this March will conclude the Season 0 events! Since the 1st Challenge Cup, several changes have been made to the format.
Arya from That Blasted Salami (TBS) in collaboration with WIreman, Seidon, and Blessy, created short overviews for all 19 characters in VF5US. Check out these videos to help you find a character that meshes with your style or to see if the description in the video matches with your opinion on a character.
I think it is safe to say that outside of Japan, many players have had trouble finding matches quickly or have trouble finding people that you have a good connection with. Here, we are trying to make it easier for fellow VF players to network and play online.
In a joking manner, Hima Jean tweeted "My connection tells me get a pen instead of an arcade stick lol". He has indeed figuratively taken to the pen this past week. He has written a couple VF-related articles for his newly formed blogs: Underground Arena.net (Blog written in English) and on Note.com (blog written in Japanese).
