Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown now available on PSN and XBLA


Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, the latest and presumably final version of the hit arcade fighting game, is now available for download worldwide on Sony’s PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Arcade. Final Showdown at long last brings the most advanced and feature packed iteration in the legendary Virtua Fighter series to home consoles, featuring a myriad of game modes both old and new, including arcade and versus modes, score attack, training, and brand new License Challenges, which tests players by having them compete in matches with a variety of interesting objectives and modifiers in each round. Also included are online leaderboards for all game modes and full online versus play.

The game can be purchased for $14.99 USD on PSN and 1200 Microsoft Points on XBLA. Also available at launch is a veritable treasure trove of downloadable content, consisting of nineteen item packs for each individual fighter, which can then be used to completely customize their looks and accessories. These item packs can be purchased individually for $4.99 USD on PSN or 400 Microsoft Points, or they can be purchased in bulk in one of two item collection packs costing $14.99 USD on PSN and for 1200 Microsoft Points. Please note that all of these items are purely cosmetic and in no way affect gameplay. Also, at the time of writing, Sony is running a limited time promotion which offers over a dozen games — including the base game of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown — to all subscribers to their PlayStation Plus online service. This deal extends to both PAL and NTSC regions and is one that certainly should not be passed up.

After the break, we’ve included the E3 2012 launch trailer for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.
