      How disappointing again is SEGA, if the game only comes to Playstation...

      Bruuuuuuuuuuh, please it's not the case.

      Hope all you said is a thing, i also though about the VF6 thing, this could be indeed a preparation for VF6 as well.

      Also the size of the game being leak, i mean i don't think it ever happened that size game leaked way before it was release, usually it happens when games are closer to release.

      Without going into overhype mode as we can't be sure of anything, but everything here is making sens. Not saying it's necessary a thing, but it make logical sens.

      I would take that to mean this is just VF5FS with no changes but as a free game will be used to drum up interest and get people into the series ahead of an actual VF6 further down the line.

      Every new numbered VF has always been a top of the line game on brand new hardware and a new console generation has just started.

      Based on the description in the article it sounds like a revision. They said changes too.

      There's no way there going to garner interest with a ten year old game ...

      This Wednesday is when they announce the free games for June so not long to wait before we find out if this is true.

      Does this mean VF5US on Steam is also for free? Good strategy Sega, you need more people.

      Hmmmm ehh I'm mixed on the character models tbh. It's hit and miss for me...

      Not to mention the trailer showed no new moves. I'm expecting more information on Thursday tho. Ign put it out early.

      Regardless VF is back. New music better online got me hyped. I wonder what else will come?

      Guess this picture is more Akira-like.

      Who is this Guy..? Do they really think they gonna bring new comers with such Bad Yakuza NPC's redesign..? I was just watching an FGC stream And reading ALL these comments about VF characters lack of Charisma HURTS.. Classic AKIRA is SO Charismatic. Even VF4 Akira face was super good. With and withoud beard.

      Was it so difficult to just improve old models and make them look like The c CHARACTER SELECT screen design? Where is the artist who made Former Akira Sarah Goh Lau Eileen design..? What happened..?

      Negatives ( AKA Sega being Sega, again ):

      - Only on PS4, not capitalizing on being on next gen consoles is a wasted opportunity. Lets hope for a PS5 upgrade patch.

      - No PC/Xbox, another wasted opportunity to bring VF to PC. No Xbox sucks too.

      - Dragon Engine, this one is based on my opinion from the youtube trailer, so hopefully im wrong, but Im worried about the animations, VF5FS still excels on that front. There are also little details I didnt like, like Wolf’s foot clipping through the floor, the hair dithering is ugly, some faces look wrong, Sarah, Goh & Wolf’s stages illumination looks way off...

      - The updated graphics probably mean no VF5FS customization options.

      - The HUD looks atrocius.

      - No balance update/gameplay tweaks.

      Im afraid this remake wont be able to achieve the same level of excellence Am2 delivered on all previous games. The standard is so high, will this remake do it justice ? The good part is that we will know in just one week : )

      Still hyped for this weeks stream & for the game.

      Now, this is what I would like to see in the next VF!
    15. Zekiel
      I think we'll find out if there will be balance adjustments and new gameplay stuff onThursday.

      That's the main thing I care about along with offline and online modes

      Other then that it's w/e to me
    16. SSfox
      Some people are saying Goh has new moves, if Goh has some new i would suspect everyone will?

      I'd be quite surprise tbh that they weren't too lazy on upgrading the graphics and make new models and stages (something i have not expected that much tbh), just so then they won't even bother make a balance adjustment. Nah doesn't make sens, we'll found out soon enough in any case.

      because picture is from the CG opening that is probably made by another team/comapny (most likely Marza Animation Planet, since they did the CG for the original VF5).
