If you're used to 2D fighters, all 3D fighters are 'slow'. I don't think VF5FS is slow though. Tekken is generally a lot slower.
Yeah I agree.
I clearly remember watching some replays of my matches and thinking "That seemes so much slower while I was playing".

It's not exlcusive to VF, but your mind goes in hyperdrive during the matches, the time slows down and you only realize it when looking at replays aftwerwards :messenger_grinning_smiling:

Yeah DOA is mostly the fastest 3D fighter out there. DOA4 was the fastest.

Unfortunately, DOA's mechanics make the games too random. When you lose in most fighting games, you can know what your mistakes were and where to improve. When you lose in DOA, most of the time it simply makes you feel unlucky.

I really dislike the counter system in doa. I wish they'd do away with that in doa 7 or at least change it up.

Wait what? I mainly play Tekken (when playing Fighters) and it's not slow at all.
I think I have to watch VF gameplay, lol.

Yes I play Tekken, a game that is very much alive and active, not dead. 😊

That's what I do now. I used to play a lot of VF but in the last few years Tekken is the only 3d fighter that's going strong and getting a lot of support. I do like to compare the two systems and I think Tekken 7 is a more complicated game than VF5FS.

About VF's speed. It's a game that can be feel quite slow and clunky to new players but as you and your opponents get better it gradually speeds up to dramatic levels. The VF4 series was probably the quickest of all 3d fighters at high level. I remember watching the on disc replays of VF4 and VF4Evo of top players and being amazed at how much quicker it was compared to my own play. That motivated me to stick with it.

Yeah same song again and again blablabla Tekken...

When VF was still here nobody gave a f*** about Tekken.

From VF1 to VF4, it was all about Virtua Fighter.

And also with VF5, Tekken 6 and TTT2 were dead too.

If you don't like Virtua Fighter just go watch for another thread but don't start with your Tekken, DOA, SoulCa. These games have no chance with the real king of 3D.

Here's a translation of the interview:
And here's some key points from SegaBits:


According to Yu Suzuki, if he ever created a Virtua Fighter 6 he would want to simplify and improve the controls and interfaces further. According to Yu Suzuki, he prefers the players to be focused on tactics instead of mastering inputs. Yu thinks this would broaden the user base. This is something that a lot of other game studios are playing with now and has the community mixed. For example Riot Games is working on a fighting game with no inputs, but uses ‘cool down’ mechanics for powerful moves.

Harada also complained about how he gets consistent request from fighting game fans on twitter (hey, that’s us) about a new Virtua Fighter because SEGA never attends these fighting game events ; so all fans seem to direct their request to him. He even mentioned that a lot of fans are requesting a Tekken x Virtua Fighter crossover, if that’s what it takes to get a new Virtua Fighter.

During the interview Harada also brings up something he talked on twitter about before, a deal Namco had floating around at management level where Namco would have added Virtua Fighter characters into a potential Dreamcast Tekken title, which never happened.

At the end of the interview, the interviewer ask Yu Suzuki and Katsuhiro Harada to go to SEGA and request they both make Virtua Fighter 6, with Yu Suzuki responding, “If you need me, just say the word.”

It's also in Yakuza (i think it's 4).

But fuck that man, i wanted a proper VF5 PS4 port, not some bullshit where i have to play some adventure game, then go to arcade then to play VF5, fuck that. In that case i still rather play it on ps3.

On Yakuza 6, and now that it was released on Steam, it's the first and (for the moment) only way to play it on PC without emulation and arcade loaders. I just wish it had a way to play with others online (like, you go on the arcade and search for opponents or connect with friends that want to play), but at least the base game is there

I hope this is in addition to Virtua x Esports and not what the new game they announced was. If all that is is VF5FS for current consoles that would be huge let down. At the very least I'd hope it was a new overhauled version of VF5 with new stuff like VF5R and VFFS were.

A new register was recently made by Sega: Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown


So it sounds like it's the 3rd upgrade of Virtua Fighter 5 (VF5 -> VF5 R -> VF5 Final Showdown -> VF5 Ultimate Showdown), only now it will be geared towards e-Sports.
Or it's just a typo mistake, and it's VF5 Final Showdown reworked for PS4 as a stand-alone release.


Sega, for instance, went ahead and remastered Shenmue I & II for PS4. They might do this with VF5, into the bargain.

Which Yakuza has VF4 on PC? Might be nostalgia but I always loved that one. Guess my dream if this sells is for them to a VF Collection...but I do like the fact that on Yakuza 2 Kiwami (not sure if on others?) you can just jump into Vf2 two player from the main menu And fight sticks work. Kinda pissed they didnt do the same for Virtual On but oh well I have the Superior Oratario Tangram on XBL.

None. The only VFs that had appeared on Yakuza games are 2 and 5: https://yakuza.fandom.com/wiki/Club_SEGA#Minigames
