      I would not think so based on the "Ultimate Showdown" title. Based on VF history each new title meant a revision of the previous one.
    2. JCnextinc
      When I see the "redesign" of the characters, and how gross they are , I would rather to just have an HD 4K remaster. I dont want them to spend all their energy in a low end revision we will play five more years, I want VF5 to come back in the E sport scene. Then , build the Hype for a next Gen AMAZING and beautiful VF6. Ahead of its time.
      A Killer app with cutting edge technologies. Virtua Fighter tradition.

      VF deserves better than all these remakes Like Panzer Dragoon, or even Phantasy star 2, (it's ok for a free to play but not for Virtua Fighter)

      So please SEGA ,don't do that, and make Virtua Fighter your Technical Showcase.
      And please don't change drastically the faces and design of the characters, make them look like their original CG art work. They were beautiful.

      Don't hire random guys respect the franchise , its DNA , hire the same designer please!:cry:

      Solid answer. Though I'm not concerned about Japanese players online since I live in America. That answer makes perfect sense. 10/10.

      Along with the PS having most (and in my opinon, better) of the fighting games, it makes sense that most of the FGC is over there.

      ...A revision or VF6 is necessary. No one wants to play FS on a esports level that'll get major attention. People want new things. Especially if you're trying to bring in new people.

      VF5US will be free for ps+ users next month

      DeepL translation of the game’s description:

      Warning: this game has not yet been officially announced and has no official trailer or description.

      Virtua Fighter makes the leap to eSports with Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown. This work brings the best possible version of Virtua Fighter with all the changes and improvements that the game has undergone during the years that have passed since its original release.

      I was just rushing to my computer to post this, lol. But hopefully if true, it will bring in some new players. I remember VF5FS was on PS Plus.

      Is that website legit or something? Also what's the other game just out of curiousity

      If true so game will come next month, that's too good to be true

      Even if it's only available for PS4, for me, it's ok since I have Playstation. But that stinks for those that don't own a Playstation. Could be because of Sony owning e-Sports if I heard correctly?

      Trying to see how legit the site is. Apparently it did call a leak in previous months. So grain of salt for a little longer but this is in line with the ratings leaks, download size and the upcoming announcement on the 27th.

      I think you're exactly right. Hoping this allows for the possibility of a PC port later on at least.

      Also means this will likely be involved with EVO in some capacity since SONY now sponsors it.

      So, if the leak is true, then that means I'll be playing again VF with all of my online friends. I'll party like it's 2012!

      I hope that SEGA will release US to Xbox and PC.
    17. joanot
      I think the game will release on PC & Xbox too, but who knows.

      Im trying to maintain my expectations as low as posible, even if we dont get a new revision with gameplay tweaks I’ll be more than happy with a VF5FS arcade port with cool VF.Net features, player intros, decent online modes, good netcode & VF5+R stages.

      This release date also means VF will be at EVO’21 : )

      Technically the ps+ thing would make sens, it's not VF6, but a revision of VF5FS, so Sega may win more than they lose, specially if the game will find success and big playerbase (something similar happened to some games, like Fallguys), so Sega know that only hardcore fans will care that much since it's more revision than brand new game, and we are at end gen where there are a lot of fighting games, so people that are already playing their fighting games, not all of them will give a try to VF5US, but with this ps+ offer they will, i mean just speculating but this make sens. And the 2 other games sounds shitty (to me at least), so the whole thing doesn't sound like a wishlist or something, it's not like they put Resident evil 3 remake and God Of War for example, it's just 2 meh games.

      I don't wanna get too much excited, but the idea that US may release in a week sound too good to be true, it's not new game i know but i suspect it won't be FS copy pasta and having (finally) VF back in modern consoles is just so exciting.

      VF5US as a free Plus PS game - i am sure

      I really believe in it because:
      - VF5FS at one time was a plus free game on PS3
      - SONY is seriously invested in e-sports, and releasing such a game for free is a very good idea for the development of esports + this is an exclusive SONY.
      - SONY recently began to give new games on the release to pluses for free
      - VF5US is likely to require a plus for online play, so it's doubly enjoyable and right

      The fact that the new game is free for pros will clearly attract new players = expand the VF community is also very correct.

      My imao - all this is preparing and setting the stage for VF6 in the future. What's the point of reviving a 10-year-old game, even if it was modified for SEGA, if you don't plan to continue it?..

      Just think of it, new revision with upgraded graphics and gameplay + new modes ,rollback netcode ( i hope ) and available on ps plus for free in 8 days. OMG
