New VIRTUA FIGHTER 5 Screenshots

The PS3 exclusive Virtua Fighter 5 will deliver fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping action as players head into battle, taking on a host of popular characters. Players will not only achieve victory by defeating highly-skilled opponents, but will also compete for prizes and earn in-game money through the match to buy many items at an in-game shop. These items allow players to customize their ultimate warrior and become the top Virtua Fighter. In addition, the game will introduce "Offensive Move", a new maneuver that will allow players to easily approach opponents from the side, adding a more strategic element to the battle. Check out these latest screens.

What is?

Witcher III, Slay the Spire, Virtua Fighter 5, and Sonic Mania are an excellent lineup of titles to add.

Lol thanks for your thoughts. Let’s now collectively disagree.

waderae1109d ago

How can you disagree with virtua fighter 5? You haven't played it. It's not out.

Hawk1986661108d ago

All the disagreeing are fools. You thinking adding a 6yrs old game thats timed, that's on sale nearly all the time for cheap is a great addition as the main game?? 2 of the games are previous PS+ games so a lot will already have them. And Virtua Fighter nearly everyone will already have that through plus! You're all Clueless

Those are great titles. Real treat.

Rocosaurus1109d ago

Love witcher 3, but that game is six years old.

Eidolon1109d ago

Great great game. Would need another playthrough (Gwent and horse racing) to get the platinum, plus I never bought/played the expansions.

monkey6021109d ago

Slay the Spire is an incredible game

Highrevz1109d ago

Agreed but I almost slept on it if I’m honest.

It’s like a traditional turn based RPG without the dramatic story. Monster Train is another good game if you need something similar to Slay the Spire.

monkey6021109d ago

I've heard that actually. Not played it yet though. Good shout!

I'd love to see Sega bring back Eternal Champions.

Why is there no Star Gladiator or Battle Arena Toshinden?

Terry_B1555d ago

Because the other 10 mentioned series were better. Star Gladiator 2 was just the first part with more characters, Battle Arena Toshinden went really downhill after the 2nd game.

BlackTar1871555d ago (Edited 1555d ago )

o got it. Cause you said those games aren't as good... Got it.

since Battle 1&2 were pretty damn good and Star Gladiator 1 was very good those sound like perfect games to remake.

Also saying a fighting game is the same as it's predecessor with more characters sums up like 90% of all sequel fighting games.

Also BA3 was not a bad game and wasn't given a bad reception.

Skuletor1555d ago (Edited 1555d ago )

I think licensing is one of the major reasons Fight for NY hasn't been ported, since its original release. Def Jam had a poll on their Twitter a year or two ago asking if people would be interested in a new entry to the series. A surprise next gen release with AKI developing it would be cool

Silly gameAr1555d ago

Definitely yes to Weaponlord, Bloody Roar, Rival Schools, Power Stone, Bushido Blade, Darkstalkers, and the Def Jam games. I was really big into fighting games when I was younger. I would Like Primal Rage, B.A,T., and Eternal Champions to come back as well.
