Virtua Fighter is finally back, baby! On June 1st, PlayStation Plus subscribers can download Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown for free. As if this surprise release wasn’t enough, fans can enhance their experience with some DLC that will surely bring a tear to longtime fans’ eyes.
For $10, the Legendary Pack comes, well, packed with content. It includes the original character models, stages, BGM, and more. You’ll also get new customization items and costumes, and social content for your online profiles during spectator mode.
Last week, GameSpot sat down with series producer Seiji Aoki about the DLC content. In their conversation, they discussed other potential DLC in the future:
“The new Legendary Pack will launch right alongside the new game…That pack includes over 2000 customization items, and a ton of new and classic content that celebrates the entire history of the Virtua Fighter series. This includes retro UI, stages, alt costumes, never-before-released background music from the previous games in the series, and all the original classic character models from the first Virtua Fighter–which you can use as special costumes. As for additional post-launch content, there are plenty of items and features we wanted to add that didn’t make it in time for launch, and we hope to share those details in the future.”Seiji Aoki
The release of Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown has gotten all of us super giddy with excitement. We’ll be streaming the game tonight at 7 PM and also this Thursday during our “Thursday Night Throwdown.”
