Virtua Fighter 2019 T Round Up.JPG
With a wealth of Virtua Fighter tournaments taking place around the world in the coming few months, let's take a quick look at what's happening and how to join!
Winter Brawl Top 4.jpg
Virtua Fighter is having a great 2019, as LAG and now Big E Gaming WinterBrawl3D have shown. While attendance was on the low side, the presence of VF at an FGC major did good work towards building interest in the game. WinterBrawl was also a great test of Virtua Fighter’s ability to hang in a multi-game setting. While I am definitely biased I’d say that it passed that test, with members of other communities coming by to talk about the game, watch casuals, and even play with us. The whole weekend was a great experience, and one that I hope we will be able to repeat in the future.
