SEGA announced today Virtua Fighter 5 for the 360 will feature an online versus mode at launch in fall 2007!
The game will also includes an improved Quest mode featuring more CPU rivals, items, and emblems for character customization.
The DOJO mode has added features including leaderboards, training move settings, improved throw escape training, and the option to change your opponent’s position and recovery type.
The game's online mode will allow players to compete online. Players will also be able to select one of the 17 characters or customize a character in Quest mode. Customization features allow players to modify their characters by decorating a selection from four base costumes by attaching a wide range of unlockable and earnable items. Players will not only achieve victory by defeating highly-skilled opponents, but also by competing for prizes and earning in-game money which allow them to buy many items at an in-game shop.
“Virtua Fighter™ 5 is the most intense fighting experience available on next-generation consoles,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. “The addition of online multiplayer support opens up the competition to a global scale enabling players to compete and challenge anyone, anywhere, anytime, using Xbox Live.”
Look for the "T" rated game to hit shelves in Fall, 2007.
