I was pretty concerned that an XBLA/PSN release of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown would mean a stripped-down feature set, but this trailer has gone a long way to help me put those fears aside. The video goes out of its way to acknowledge the existence of the dynamic arenas (which I was expecting), online room matches (which I wasn’t entirely expecting), a “vast collection of customizable items” (which I… wasn’t necessarily expecting only because I’m crazy about making Akira look weird), and a tutorial mode, which looks like it might be as fully featured as the VF4 Evolution tutorial mode, and includes a frame advantage counter, which is great news if you’re wanting to learn how to play.
