    As a part of SEGA's 60th anniversary, something is being teased that's seemingly fighter related. The announcement will be made on the 25th of March 2020. What could it be?


    The text above roughly translates to "6 days until birth", and will continue to count down until we reach the announcement date on the 25th of March.

    Start speculating naaaoooowwwww!

      Can this be VF6 please ?
      I mean.....
      We deserve it no ?

      That's just young Segata Sanshiro. You could tell Sega right now that they could erase COVID-19 by releasing VF6 and they wouldn't move a finger.

      Segata Sanshiro The Movie. A Legend is reborn.

      Maybe it's his son or grandson?

      Wooah! I get an epic Karate Kid 1 vibe, from watching that pic. Like for real.:holla:

      Segata Sanshiro is good enough.

      Now, I can't just say they arent aware of what a number "6" in addition to A karate dude would mean to people.. like I can't believe it's just random and they don't care about people waiting for VF6.

      Maybe Seata will announce it ?

      It's next week... Not a long time to wait.

      I'm guessing this is either;
      A) Nothing, meaning a website to celebrate the 60th Anniversary.
      B) Segata Sanshiro gets a guest appearance in a mobile game or something.

      Exactly, like the implication is huge on this image.

      Well, it sure shouldn't mean Akira!

      Kinda true... But there is tons of VF6-iness in this whole thing.

      Now there is a chance this has nothing to do with VF and I could be wrong, but this doent mean that whoever is behind this has no idea that a "6" and a guy in white karate robe would get we eyes rolling.

      Who cares of Segata Sanshiro in 2020 ?

      SEGA better thinks about VF for real now.

      It's time for the king to return.

      Give us finally our most beloved kung fu fighting game again.

      The "6" on the page has already counted down to "5."

      The page's Japanese HTML description tag text Google translates to "Sega 60th anniversary ambassador silhouette pre-release! 3/25 Information lifted."

      The URL is 60th.sega.com/segashiro/

      The @SEGA_OFFICIAL Twitter account seems to have a related pinned tweet currently https://twitter.com/SEGA_OFFICIAL/status/1240577488633212930 : a photo of a gi top, with some kind of Sega paper tag partially hidden under it, with accompanying Tweet text translating as "(Oh, why judo clothes?)."

      Most of the Japanese replies to the tweet by fans translate as Segata Sanshiro speculation--Segata Sanshiro was the ambassador character for the Sega Saturn, dressing in a judo outfit. A few wonder if it's about a "Saturn Mini," or a new Virtua Fighter game.

      Yeah but the countdown started with "6" when it could have started with 7 or 5.

      I think there is a bit of VF-isness there in the whole thing.

      Again, Segata could just announce the new game or I really don't know. We will see...

      The url says "segashiro" probably Sega Saturn mini announcement. It is very cruel from SEGA to start the countdown from 6. It's almost that they are making fun of us loyal fans at this point.

      Yep, using the number 6 and Akira stance... That's too big for just being pure hazard.

      They are clearly using VF to make some hype.

      I'm not holding my breath. But I'd to a lil wild if I saw a VF6 trailer.

      If they do make a VF6, I wonder if it's gonna be with the same recipe as before. With it not coming to consoles till years later, after it gets updated a few times.
