Cool! I'm a competent modder
Is there a reason why support for VF ended after FS? My guess would be sales (but obviously VF5FS would have high sales considering it was just a port and wasn't well known). As far as I'm concerned the series is dead which is a shame because it paved the way for other 3D fighters similar to Street Fighter paving the way for 2D fighters. If Sega poured more resources into it like they did with Sonic and Yakuza it would have done well. Ironically, Sega killed off a lot of their good ip's; Jet Set Radio, VF, Shenmue, and Shinobi (which had a good ost but Ninja Gaiden probably put that game in the grave lol).
VF5, in general, has been going on for 11 years now since 2006. Right now, SEGA is reviving a lot of IPs, and hopefully we get an announcement during SEGAFes next week.
Besides, VF is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year.
Wouldn't get hopes up. Every announcement is something that ends up being completely different (one was hoping for a new Jet Set Radio and Skies game too). But turns out literally something entirely different.
Well it turned out to be Shenmue 1&2 collection.
One thing I learned is that survey in Japan was based on the SEGA IPs that fans want to see again. Virtua Fighter was #5 on the list. Also, #6 is supposed to be Panzer Dragoon. This was shown during SEGAFes 2018.
What the hell is Sakura Wars?
I'd say watch this. It's a Tactical RPG (sometimes a visual novel and dating sim), and it even had its own anime.
So this is what VF and Jet Set Radio lost to? That sucks.
In all fairness, out of everything that happened in that list, Shenmue 1&2 got an HD Remaster, Virtual-On has a new game out, and Shining has a new game also coming out.
AM2 team is currently busy with porting Border Break to PS4. But hey... the closest thing we have is VF5FS in Yakuza 6, which comes out tomorrow.
Reminder that the JSR ost is iconic.
I await the day that VF finally gets a sequel, When It does I think I'll get it to maybe check out and play a VF game. I watched some tournament footage too of VF5.
a new Sakura Wars is already in development so technically JSR should be first =.=
Akira thick though...
seriously, hype matches. Love the high level play
I completely forgot about Skies of Arcadia. That one was a really good JRPG actually. Jet Set Radio and Sonic Adventure was how I got into the Dreamcast and got me into gaming more often than ever during those times. Jet Set Radio's OST like Jade mentioned was pretty awesome to hear and JSR on the DC was a blast including JSRF for the Xbox.
Not only would I vote for Jet Set Radio, but I'd also vote for Skies of Arcadia and another Panzer Dragoon. VF as well. Shenmue is already coming so that one is finally checked and really good to see back.
