    On this day in 2010, SEGA released Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown for Japanese arcades, followed by a international console release two years later for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was also re-released through other SEGA games such as Yakuza 6 and Judgement for example.

    Ten years after its release, the community is still playing VF5FS to this day. For example: @Blitzball Champ hosting VF Arena, @Myke capturing the best highlights from Japanese VF5FS matches, the SEGA Cup from 2013 to 2014, myself hosting Virtua Fighter Takeover, and several FGC appearances such as EVO 2012 for instance.

    To celebrate this occasion, I compiled a blog on Destructoid looking back at the journey with VF5FS and how it still holds to this day compared to other modern-day fighting games.

    Happy 10th Anniversary, VF5FS!

      Thanx Kazam, awesome job Kazama, just reminding us of the petition brings back so many good memories. And to your point after all of this time the VF community is alive and well. And its going to stay that way. It is also growing (slowly, inch by inch) I meet new players on PSN from time to time. So as long as VF5FS can be purchased and downloaded, I think we'll keep getting new members. But even if we don't there are thousands of active VF players world wide, and I think its going to be that way for a long time to come, new version or not.;)
