It appears SEGA hasn’t completely forgot that it owns Virtua Fighter and has announced today plans to launch an eSports project related to the popular fighting series.
“Virtua Fighter, which was created as the world’s first 3D fighting game in 1993, will restart as an eSports title in celebration of SEGA’s 60th anniversary, starting in Japan,” SEGA tweeted (see below). “Details on the project will be announced in a future update.”
SEGA didn’t announce additional information or details what this all means, but we’re excited to see what this could lead to. Might we finally get Virtua Fighter 6?!
