I’ve recently heard about the update coming to Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. They’re planning a version B which contains no known gameplay balance or feature updates. The only thing we know is that it will not support VF.net. This is odd and if there are no other changes, it means that this game is coming to the end of it’s life. Being optimistic though, you might see that it’s actually a sign that there will be a new game to replace it.
The guys at VirtuaFighter.com has linked to this Neogaf article which states there is a new VF in the making. Now this is a rumour at this point and nothing official has come out. But if there is a new VF coming out, I might have to fly to Japan just to pump a few Yen at an arcade in Akihabara.
