Sega Working on Curious Virtua Fighter X Esports Projectby Jackson Henry Woner
During the recent Tokyo Game Show, Sega surprised everyone by disclosing a curious project named Virtua Fighter x esports. The announcement was accompanied by old footage of competitions; however, the company did not explicitly clarify what the project is about. It is hard not to think of Virtua Fighter comeback, but there is no official clarification yet. It is also possible that it might only be a tournament of the remaining games so therefore Virtua Fighter fans should not get their hopes high.It’s been more than a decade since Sega has been completely ignoring the once-famous Virtua Fighter series. The previous release came all the way back in 2012 when Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. However, this is not out of the ordinary for the video game industry. But it was quite depressing to see a series that has been as successful as Virtua Fighter to go away. The franchise had been very crucial in familiarizing 3D fighting games, and it is a positive sign that Sega has acknowledged the once-famous game series. Virtua Fighter was one of the earliest games of the fighting genre, and it introduced its fans with some of the now-famous competitors in its tournaments. Even if we might not see Virtua Fighter 6, it will be great if Sega renews the support for earlier Virtua Fighter games. There is no doubt that a large number of its fans will be excited to join if the company gives them the option.
