The story is too old to be commented.

Or, you know, you could have put those characters IN THE GAME. Including from Judgement. Virtua Fighter: Yakuza/Judgement Edition. VF: Shenmue Edition. I don't know. They have so many characters at Sega that fight, that we could have a new Mega Mix. Nope. Even a Streets of Rage fighting game like Street Fighter. Nope.

Just bits and pieces accessories like women with purses, shoes and earrings. Useless cosmetics. So exciting. /S

The era of skins. How about a new VF or a whole new fighting game Sega? I'm also looking at you Namco and Capcom.

It's been stated before by the creators of Yakuza that they are very limited in what games they'll let Kiryu be in, especially fighting games. He's never been shown to fight a woman (one time it's a cross dressed man) and they're doing their best to keep it that way.

So, Sega doesn't own the game AND the developer? That's news to me. No wonder they don't make anything new.

You also must have no knowledge of the series. Every character is super deep to master while simultaneously extremely balanced. It is a huge undertaking to add characters in this series which is why so few get added. It probably hurts them financially but it also keeps the integrity of what VF has always been.

How many VF5 versions are there from arcade to home? Plenty of time to balance characters or just swap characters like Akira and Ryu.

You're making it more difficult than it is. You'd rather they have it easy by just making 650 accessories? Lol.

I agree. They just need a new entry. It’s been too long.

ApocalypseShadow41d ago

This guy gets it. But the guys above would rather swap shoes, hats and underwear.

Bathory66642d ago (Edited 42d ago )

I love this series but the online is pretty scarce. Hard to find consistent matches. It’s just an old game. I really wish they would make a new entry. Virtua fighter is the most technical and balanced fighter, but a new entry is long overdue. They just re-release this over and over.

ApocalypseShadow41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

That's what I love about Yu Suzuki's creation. It's as technical a fighter as GT is for driving. That created multiple copycats from DOA to Tekken. We need a new, more advanced game being that we have hardware today capable of more fluid animation, better lighting, faster response time, Ray tracing, textures to make the background and foreground look damn near real.

Nope. We just get accessories.

And now it just withers in the wind with Dural sitting in a retirement home.
