Virtua Fighter is back! No, I am not talking about Virtua Fighter 5 or some Sega Ages PS2 Port, this time it's out for cell phones. It seems to be some Virtua Fighter 1 and 2 thrown together with the graphics similiar to Virtua Fighter 2 on the Saturn. To be honest it comes incredibly close to the visual brilliance that was Virtua Fighter 2. Only the backgrounds can't compare with our beloved Saturn version of the game, yet everything else seems to be intact. The resolution is quite amazing, the textures are even interpolated and the fighter detail seems to be up par with the Saturn game. The character portraits in the character select screen are some more recent ones. Probably from Virtua Fighter 4 or 5, which I've never played.
At first I thought that it has great graphics, especially for a mobile game. But then... how am I supposed to play that with the wonky keys of my cell phone? I think it's unplayable and a mere tech demo of what modern cell phones can do these days. But everything from the Saturn's past is welcome and so I'd file that under obscurity.
