Sega has unveiled some details on the latest version of the VF5 arcade that is going to be coming out to challenge Tekken 6 in arcades. If you were hoping for something quite different than previous versions you may be a little disappointed although it will be slightly different than what was released on the game consoles. Enhancements include some new costumes, items and two new game modes known as Knockdown Trial 2 (single player) and Open Battle mode (multiplayer tournament).
We will see how this turns out – VF5 is only coming to arcades outside Japan because of Tekken 6 otherwise it would have been a console only affair. So far Sega hasn’t been showing VF5 much at recent events with one source saying that they don’t expect it to sell that well. This is only one version of the game headed to arcades next year – Virtua Fighter 5 Evolution is also slated for sometime next year. Either way, 2008 is going to be the return of fighters to the arcade.
