SEGA Model 2 Collection Titles Virtua Strike and Virtual-On Stay Japan Exclusive

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

SEGA have revealed that the re-releases of Cyber Troopers Virtual-On and Virtua Striker will not be making their way West and are restricted to the Japanese PSN and XBLA services. This is disappointing news as the other 3 titles in the collection (Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Fighter 2 and Fighting Vipers) were released in the West.

The 2 games are due to launch in Japan on February 13th 2013.

Model 2 Collection Announced for Japanese PSN/XBLA

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

SEGA of Japan are releasing Virtua Fighter 2, Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Striker, Fighting vipers and Cyber Troopers: Virtual-On for the Japanese XBLA and PSN services. Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Fighter and Fighting Vipers will be bundled together as a $15 3 game pack on PSN all with online versus modes. This pack will come out during Autumn 2012 while the others are due “winter 2013” but we think this might be a typo and it’s actually 2012.

More interestingly is the fact that Sonic the Fighters is an expanded version that makes Metal Sonic and Eggman playable as well as the dumped character Honey the Cat. Now that was unexpected!

Unfortunately there is no word on a Western release at this time.

Mysterious 2X5 Teaser Hints at SEGA Model 2 Arcade Games

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

The above trailer uploaded to SEGA of Japan’s YouTube Channel contains a series of video game sounds that make reference to Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers, Sonic the Fighters, Virtua Striker and Cyber Troopers: Virtual-On. The video is titled 2×5 and is more than likely referencing the SEGA Model 2 arcade board that these games were developed for.

The teaser ends with the message; “See you tomorrow!” Is this the rumoured XBLA/PSN re-releases of Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic the Fighters? Hopefully we’ll find out “tomorrow”!
