Sega shipping Virtua Fighter 5 on February 20 (North America)

5. 20. Once we get a price, we'll plug in the 3rd number to this combination.This makes it official. Sega of America has announced that they will ship Virtua Fighter 5 to PS3 stores on February 20, 2007. Hey, at least you can call your friendly neighborhood EBGame/Stop (or other retailer) and see if your pre-order will ship on ship date, or you’re better off lining in front of the counter instead.

Across the Atlantic, Sega of Europe could not give a specific date for a Virtua Fighter release in the Continent and across the Channel, other than saying “Spring 2007”. They CAN say, however, that Virtua Fighter will be an official launch title (we’re quoting the PR here). Hopefully this also means that Sony‘s fairly confident that Europe will be getting their PS3s in spring 2007, despite the negative calls from others.

The rest of the PR touts the game’s virtues, including the customizable characters, the “Offensive Move” technique, and two new characters. For the ratings-conscious out there, the ESRB gives this game “T” for violence and suggestive themes, not that very young children will have the dexterity and hand-eye coordination for this kind of game, anyway.
