Happy 20th Birthday, Virtua Fighter!

20 years ago today, the first-ever 3D fighting game hit arcades around the world. As you might imagine, it was massively popular.

To mark the occasion, Sega has unveiled a 20th anniversary website where they promise to periodically post news and content related to the series.


    • Ho-leeee crap! TWENTY YEARS!! I was just a young tacker! In my tartan baggys and smiley face t-shirt. With my chuppa-chups and RAVING! RAVING!! RAVING!! To a better tomorrow!…

  • I hope they re release Sega Rally in 2015. Still a great game, stood the test of time better than Virtua Fighter.

  • If I had a dollar for every time I plated that game, I’d have 4 dollars. virtua racer and virtua cop were the bomb as well. I think that was the last time arcades were that much fun…. alien 3: the gun, virtual on (freaking unreal), and the multiplayer tank one (I think it was called Tokyo wars).

    Even the crap machines were worth playing for the amusement value-revolution x was a shooter that involved aerosmith, some dominatrix and you fired cds out of your gun.
