SEGA of America – training videos

SEGA of America have released some Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown tutorial videos! They show you both sides of the coin by explaining why something happened and what you can do about it. It’s not just for beginners as they also highlight any changes from the previous Virtua Fighters. Anyway, to share this, I’ve listed the videos below and included what each tutorial contains (chapter titles):

Tutorial #1 – basic mechanics:

Tutorial #2 – basic fighting mechanics:
