The game has been on location over the past few months but now Virtua Fighter 5 R has now been officially released in Japan.
The upgraded game has new features and new character which should be enough to garner some extra interest in the game as well as offer players two new characters to learn. Well I say two, but in fact one of them may be familiar to you. Sumo wrestler Taka-Arashi, was last seen in Virtua Fighter 3. The other new character is Jean Kujo, who is a specialist in Karate.
Feature wise a VF.NET service has also been added called ‘Fight Development’, where players train with their character and learn new moves during fights.
