Sega announced today that it will release a definitive version of its fighting title Virtua Fighter 5 next summer on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is set to feature a complete overhaul of the original game's mechanics and balancing, along with new visuals and animations. It will also include new game modes, new arenas, two all-new characters never before seen in a Virtua Fighter title, and the biggest ever collection of character items in the series. In total, the game will supply 19 playable characters, and dynamic arenas which are different every time you play. Players can also interact with surroundings, breaking through fences and utilizing walls for special moves. Haruki Satomi, vice president at Sega of America, explained, "Virtua Fighter 5 has always been an authentic arcade fighter, even when played from the comfort of a home console." "Like any proper arcade dynasty, we’ve continued to support, expand and tweak the game in the years since its release. With Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, we get to bring the ultimate expression of competitive one-on-one gaming to console players in one perfect package."
