After weeks of rumours and teasing, Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown has been officially announced. It's an enhanced remaster of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown — a cracking 3D fighter that released on the PlayStation 3 back in 2012. That was pretty much the last time SEGA's series had any relevance, so it's great to see it return.
Ultimate Showdown is a PS4 exclusive, and will only be available through the PlayStation Store. What's more, it's heavily rumoured to be a PlayStation Plus title for June 2021. Given that Ultimate Showdown's release date has been revealed — 1st June — we'd bet on the PS Plus leak being legit, since that's also when the Plus games will be dropping.
