As anyone who reads my blog should know, Virtua Fighter 5R is one of my most-wanted fighting games. Not only because it's easily one of the best fighting games out there, it's also got a bevy of babes who can be customized to show off their sexy, lovingly-rendered bare feet for footfans' enjoyment. Gamers have been waiting patiently for a console port of this game, which has so far only been released in Japanese arcades. So far a petition to get Sega to make that port a reality is in motion. But sadly, it's too late. I don't want VF5R any more.
I. Want. THIS.
It's called Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, the latest upgrade to VF5 that's just been announced in the recent AOU Show in Japan. The trailer shows off what appear to be new moves and animations for the characters, as well as some saucy new outfits...
Now, in case you missed it 'cause it went pretty fast... here are some stills of a couple of the new outfits...
Now, that's hot.
If there's anything hotter than a barefoot babe... it's a barefoot babe in a BIKINI. This is actually a pretty big step, as the last time a babe from a mainstream fighting game was barefoot and bikini-clad in combat, the title was usually a Dead or Alive game from Tecmo (Dead or Alive on PSX and DOA Ultimate on Xbox) or a customized character from Namco's Soul Calibur. That Sega has finally seen fit to bring this sexy bit of fan service to their beat 'em up is a pretty big step (and maybe shows that they wanna sell their game more than ever). Now, certainly THIS has to come to consoles. I'm pretty sure that for a game this hot, even Japanese gamers who can see this their arcades will want to have a version to play in the comfort and privacy of their own homes.... heheh. Anyway, hopefully as well this will set a precedent and perhaps we'll see the Tekken babes in bikinis as well? Something to hope for in the future then. But for now, everyone cross their fingers that we see VF5FS on our PS3s or Xbox360s soon.
