At the moment of publishing, Sega has not commented on the leaked rating nor the speculation it has created. If this changes, we will be sure to update the story accordingly. That said, not only does this rating more or less confirm the game, but it suggests it’s releasing soon. For those that don’t know: Virtua Fighter 5, as its name suggests, is the fifth installment in the Virtua Fighter series. After a brief stint as an arcade exclusive, the game came to PS3 at the start of 2007 before coming to Xbox 360 later the same year. That said, judging by the name, this would be a remaster/remake of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, which was more or less an expanded version of the original game that hit three years later in 2010.
Right now, there’s no word of a proper PS5 version, but if it’s coming to PS4 it will be playable on PS5 via backward compatibility. At the time, many thought this project would produce a new Virtua Fighter game, and this may still happen, but it looks like Sega may simply be remastering/remaking Virtua Fighter 5 instead.
