From the publisher: This new installment in the critically-acclaimed Virtua Fighter series packs a serious punch fueled by the power of the PLAYSTATION®3. Virtua Fighter 5 will have an all-star cast of 17 fighters, including characters from the previous iterations along with two new characters named El Blaze and Eileen.

El Blaze is a Mexican fighting champion that defeats unsuspecting opponents with his lightning-quick Lucha Libre fighting style and Eileen uses a Monkey Kung Fu fighting style which she learned from her grandfather, a former Kung Fu master. Choose from an array of costumes and attachable items and then step into the ring and prove that you're the best.

Sega's highly anticipated PlayStation3™ fighting game Virtua Fighter 5 is in stock today, available as Asia Version (US$ 59.90) and Japanese Version (US$ 69.90).

Every copy of the Asia release version ships with a Virtua Fighter 10th Anniversary bonus disc (encoded to play on NTSC/J PS2™/PS3™ consoles only) as long as supplies last. We also received around 50% of this bonus disc with our Japanese version game preorders, which will be included with all early preorders that are shipping today.


The Virtua Fighter series is enjoyed best with a fighting stick. Hori's Fighting Stick 3 (US$ 49.90) and Real Arcade Pro Stick 3 (US$ 89.90) are in stock already. The Virtua Stick High Grade is expected to arrive later this week. Due to the high demand, we estimate to fill only around 60-70% of all Virtua Stick High Grade preorders within this week, more supply is scheduled to arrive next week.
