    The game title of "Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown" has just been rated by the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea for the PS4 platform, and, interestingly, the rating lists "Virtua Fighter esports" as the original title. With recent news of the PS3 store shutting down, and no current, stand-alone way to play VF5FS on a PlayStation 4 or 5 console, could this be SEGA's move to kill two birds with one stone? Officially bring the latest title in some kind of updated "ultimate" form into the esports scene, and playable on a modern console?

      Very excited! I'm so glad we're getting a port of this great game. Curious to see if it'll be on more platforms than just PS4, but I imagine it will be.
      Making it PS4 is a nice start, since it should run natively on PS5 as well, no?

      GAME RATING and ADMINISTRATION COMITTEE has been known to leak games before, this is an official government site. They seem to have confirmed the age rating of VF5FS for PS4, does this mean VF5FS is now confirmed to be on PS4?

      It's known that the GRAC usually inspects the console versions first, if this is official, then we could be seeing an official rating for VF5FS for PC soon also.

      by the way, I AM LOOSING MY SHIT RIGHT NOW!

      if there will be no PC release, it will drag the game down a LOT. Im being afraid again :cry:

      I hope this is not the VF x esport but rather the much needed next gen port of one of the best games ever.

      Hmmm I wonder if it's going to be updated graphics and gameplay and such. If it's just pretty graphics then I won't be interested. We'll have to wait and see~

      Ultimate Shown instead of Final Showdown as the title implies it will not be a port but a new revision of VF5. Has sega ever renamed an entry like this and done a port? Serious question.

      If all that hype for only a port of a 15/10 years old (dead) game, and only on PS4 ... That would be pretty lazy and very disapointing.

      That "Ultimate" version better have some advantage (content, graphics, netcode, feature...) and release on every platforms (Xbox, PC, even on Switch).

      I'm not gonna get my hopes up. I bet it's just a remastered version of the game running at a higher resolution with lots of extra modes. Anyway, I refuse to get even a little bit excited until I see two letters..... available on PC!

      I hope we are talking about a new revision of the game, so they could include

      -new stages and old stages reworded
      -graphics improvements
      -new music
      -new moves and balancement
      -new items
      -new modes


      If it's just Final Shodown Free 2 Play, with no offline mode and just the online matches, it would be a real bad news.

      Welp, you know my rule. Less talk more show the footage. So until Sega shows juicy footage, I can't be excited.

      Pumped. Glad I've been playing VF5:FS with a ps4 controller this whole time. Thanks Yakuza and Judgment (y)

      Worst case scenario it is just a repackage of 5FS with all the cosmetic DLC. Still, I think this is a W since I look at DOA and other franchises and making this game playable on new gen is still a net positive.

      I still echo the feelings that I'd like to see rollback and a graphical update but let's just hope this can be the start of a new chapter for VF.

      This is what I'm expecting while hoping for rollback and crossplay. Sega going back to add extras like VF4:Evo had would be even more awesome.

      VF5 Ultimate showdown needs to be a new vf5 revision. 2 new chars ,moves and balance changes with rollback netcode. Give us this and we are happy SEGA.

      Even if it were an exact port of VF5FS to PS4 that's good news. If Ultimate means Sega is going to make this a culmination of the previous games, e.g adding trainable AI from VF4, bringing back the announcer from VF5, the underground tournaments from VF4 EVO, Team Battle from VF3, the Kumite mode from VF4, the tutorial & training modes from VF4 EVO that would be FN awesome:LOL: And if Hori & others announce some new sticks., Well, Lets do the damn thing:ROTFL:

      Oh man, I'm excited for anything really. If it's just a port with updated graphics then it's at least something. Hopefully it's like a reboot though with a new engine and new moves and stages. That would be dope. We need a trailer so they can reveal this thing already.
