Yes, Sonic the Fighters Is Coming to the PSN

Don't shoot the messenger
Following weeks of speculation, SEGA has finally confirmed that Sonic the Fighters is coming to the PlayStation Network. As predicted, the terrible arcade fighting game will release alongside fellow Model 2 titles Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers. You’ll be able to purchase all three games for ¥800 (roughly $10) in Japan – but SEGA should really be paying you to play Sonic the Fighters. At least the other two games are good, but we question the value of Virtua Fighter 2 when it’s going to be included in Yakuza 5 as a throw-away mini-game.
SEGA also plans to release Virtua Striker and Virtual On at a later date, but specific details are scarce. None of the titles have been confirmed for a Western release just yet, but we’d be surprised if they didn’t make their way overseas eventually.
