The last Virtua Fighter game we saw released by Sega came out almost 14 years ago – way back in 2006.
The game, for all its flaws, delivered on what many people want from a Virtua FIghter title: decent, hard-hitting, 3D combat.
The 3D fighter space has been dominated by Bandai Namco of late – Tekken and Soul Calibur are the champions of the arena, with few newcomers able to challenge their reign – but that may all be about to change.
Twitter post by VFdotcom picked up on a 60th anniversary celebration post from Sega, that has some… interesting… art on it.
"As a part of SEGA's 60th anniversary, something is being teased that's seemingly fighter related. The announcement will be made on the 25th of March 2020. What could it be?" says the tweet (via EventHubs ).
The image in question – seen in the header of this story – features the silhouette of a character with a raised fist, who appears to be wearing a ghi… bearing a striking resemblance to Akira, Virtua Fighter's mascot character.
The message on the image supposedly translates to something like "six days until birth."
You'd be hard pressed not to make the Virtua Fighter 6 connections here, then.
We only have a few days to wait to see if this is an honest to God teaser for a new VF game… or some top-tier trolling from Sega.
We'll update you as we learn more.
