Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is the latest game in Sega's Virtua Fighter series, and the last update to Virtua Fighter 5.
It includes all of the new additions in Virtua Fighter 5 R, such as the new character Jean Kujo and the return of Taka-Arashi, as well as new stages, costumes, and animations. It was released to Japanese arcades on July 29th 2010, and was released as a downloadable title for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in June 2012.
Unlike Virtua Fighter 5 which got a full retail release, Final Showdown was released only as a budget downloadable title. Because of space restrictions, only the A and B costumes are included in the game, and additional costumes (including the new Type E and S costumes) and customization items are sold as DLC. This also means there is no "Kumite" or "Quest" mode as in previous titles.
Unlike the arcade version which had old stages from Virtua Fighter 5 R selectable, only the new Final Showdown stages are available. However, the game includes an extensive tutorial mode, online play on both consoles, and soundtracks from previous Virtua Fighter games.
