Virtua fighter 5 Final Showdown arriva su console!

L’annuncio che molti/tutti i fan Sega aspettavano da tempo, Sega ha appena annunciato che l’ultima versione dello storico piacchiaduro Sega, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, arriverà su console.
Purtoppo Sega ci ha abituato soprattutto con i suoi brand più importanti ad annunci rovinati da qualche sgradita sorpresa, e purtroppo VF5 FS non fa eccezione:

Final Showdown sarà disponibile in Estate 2012 sui canali digital delivery XBLA e PSN, si avete capito bene, digital delivery.
Un trattamento che troviamo indecoroso (e anche offensivo) per una brand pesante come Virtua Fighter, e che soprattutto non trova scuse nel classico “mercato ostile”, dal momento che la concorrenza pubblica picchiaduro “a cadenza settimanale” in versione fisica su disco senza problemi ed anche con successo.

La questione del digital delivery però non è solo il classico “capriccio” del collezionista, dal momento che, come già successo con Afterburner climax e l’ultimo Sega Rally Online Arcade, la scelta di questo formato si ripercuoterà anche sui contenuti del gioco.
Dal comunicato ufficiale (che potete leggere sotto) si può notare ad esempio la mancanza del Quest Mode, la modalità principale per giocatore singolo inclusa in VF5, anche se Sega promette una nuova modalità single player mai vista prima.
Saranno disponibili ovviamente le classifiche, il multiplayer online e il supporto ai DLC futuri.

Vi lasciamo all’interessante intervista di Gamespot

ed al comunicato ufficiale:
