Sega has sent over some new screens and a couple of promotional images for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown.

Final Showdown is the recently announced re-release/expansion of the much-loved fighting game scheduled for release on PSN and XBLA later this year.

The fighter will include new characters such as Taka-Arashi from VF3 and Jean Kudo. Its mechanics have also been overhauled with accessibility in mind. New stage shapes and interactive environments will also be included.


"Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is the definitive version of the Vertua Fighter 5 series, incorporating all of the enhancements the arcade team has rolled out since 2007," says Sega.

"Final Showdown makes significant improvements to the fighting mechanics and adds new single player and online modes while maintaining the series' classic balance and precision."
