Virtua Fighter 5 R Unveiled!

Famitsu has unveiled the latest major revision to the Virtua Fighter franchise… Virtua Fighter 5 R! Much like how Tekken 5 had it’s “Dark Resurrection,” VF5 has it’s “R.” This latest announcement took place at AOU2008 in Japan. Aside from a tweaked game play system, VF5R also features at least one new character and the return of a sumo wrestling fighter! Could it be, Taka Arashi?!

    PS3 is a must.. for this.. I will buy it very quick

  2. thelonegamer says:

    I hope Sega brings this to consoles as well. As for that new fighter… intriguing. I hope that there’s more than one new face, aside from Taka-arashi…

  6. MarkMan says:

    Tekken 6 has already been released and is not at AOU2008 for anything new. The latest news on Tekken 6 is the end of Feb. Tekken Net update for Japan… which will be the same as the INT version.

    Nice to see this. I know like last year I saw on there site they had ver. D as well as what they called at the time VF5: EVO to be release in 2008.

  13. andreafrozen says:

    february 29th?? what? but if namco don’t say nothing about date release, today is 16th february! so tekken 6 on console will be releases btw 15 days? no, this is impossible. namco not announced date release!! this is just a your invention!!!

  14. Nashville says:

    Maybe J2T meant that it’ll be out in arcades in europe for the 29th… it sounds more realistic than the ps3 release… despite lack of good arcades in europe. :( Well definitely in ireland there’s no decent arcades

  15. J 2 T says:

    That’s what it said on Amazon “release date February 29th”

  16. andreafrozen says:

    tekken 6 arcade in europe, no! in europe waiting for only tekken on console!!

  17. ShinFuYux says:

    The new character’s fighting style is Karate.

    If you go to youtube and type in “virtua fighter 5 r”, you could find the trailer.

    It shows him fighting jacky.
    Taka Arashi

    And the new stages.
