Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown pulls no punches on 5 June
SEGA has announced details on the latest installment in the long running Virtua Fighter series. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown will be available as a standalone downloadable game over PSN on 5 June. Also announced were details about pricing and launch day DLC. Read on to get all the facts on the 3D fighter that started it all.
The 5 June PSN update hits during E3 and will bring Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown for just $14.99/ £9.99/ AUD$18.25/ €12.99. DLC character customization packs will be available on the same day for $4.99/ £3.59/ AUD$6.25/ €4.49 per character pack. Two more DLC packs containing even more character customization options will also show up on launch day for $14.99/ £9.99/ AUD$18.25/ €12.99 each on PSN.
This past year has proven to be an eventful one for fighting fans. Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition and Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition continue their respective long running franchises. We’ll hopefully see more info on Dead or Alive 5 and now Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. PSN has played host for several lesser known fighters, so it will be interesting to see what the venerable VF series can do in its new digital form factor.
Do you think the announced pricing for Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is a good deal, or is the idea of premium priced DLC a washout? Tell us in the comments section…
