“Created as the world’s first 3D fighting game in 1993, Virtua Fighter caused a huge sensation at the time and is still loved by fans,” it said. Sega provided further hints at what the new Virtua Fighter project could entail in its financial results published in December, in which it confirmed the game would be a “restart” focussed on competitive play. “The game will restart as an eSports title, initially in Japan. Project details will be announced from time to time, so please keep an eye out.”

Sega CEO Haruki Satomi described Virtua Fighter X Esports as “a project commemorating the 60th year anniversary of ,” starting “first” in Japan. The ‘Virtua Fighter X eSports’ project was revealed via a teaser trailer aired during Sega’s Tokyo Game Show live stream in September. At the time, the company did not reveal further details on what the project was.

Sega’s fighting series hasn’t seen a mainline instalment since 2010’s Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, which was eventually released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012, and later made available via a mini-game in 2016’s Yakuza 6: The Song of Life for PS4. The same art was also reportedly published on the Asian PSN with the name Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, which matches a listing published on South Korea’s game ratings board website earlier this month.

The Japanese giant has shown an openness to outsourcing IP in the past, not just with Shenmue but also with Bayonetta to Platinum Games. Asked if he would like to return to his classic games Virtua Fighter and Out Run, Suzuki told VGC: “Yes I would like to . If you’re going to ask me what, I can’t answer that!” Notice: To display this embed please allow the use of Functional Cookies in Cookie Preferences.

Suzuki recently created Shenmue III with his company YS Net, but remains a consultant with his former employer Sega. In 2019, Virtua Fighter’s creator Yu Suzuki suggested he could be in discussions to return to his former series.
