Sony Promises To Consider Virtua Fighter Return
Fans will still have to wait with bated breath if this favorite returns

When the Game Awards 2023 event rolled around, Sega sent mysterious packages to some huge influencers within the FGC which prompted a lot of talk and excitement for the possible announcement for a new Virtua Fighter game. 

It turned out that Sega were planning to announce the revival of a slew of their old property many of which a well loved by fans including Jet Set Radio. While this was not the news fans might have hoped for, it did cause a lot of excitement regardless. 

Now, in an interview with the Washington Post, the Co-Chief Operating Officer and Sega of America CEO Shuji Utsumi stated that there is some serious consideration in-house of a new Virtua Fighter. 

The game has been on ice for two decades causing fans to clamor for a new iteration. 

According to Utsumi, the major consideration for a new Virtua Fighter is how to make it more exciting for a younger audience. This is because Virtua Fighter, like Tekken, is a lot more grounded in reality than the likes of Street Fighter and Guilty Gear, so a lot of the fighting is very realistic and this could possibly be a turn off to modern audiences. 

While we await a new Virtua Fighter, the game did release in 2021 as a remaster of Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown
