    Following the game’s reveal just last week, SEGA has now released Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown for PS4. The game is currently available for free this month for all PS Plus subscribers, and is available as a separate purchase for players without a PS Plus subscription.

    In case you’re unfamiliar, Ultimate Showdown is a remake of the original Virtua Fighter 5 which released back in 2006 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Ultimate Showdown was made as part of SEGA’s 60th anniversary, and it is co-developed by Sega AM2 with help from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio (RGG Studio); the game even runs on RGG Studio’s own Dragon Engine which is used for the Yakuza games.
