Could Sega finally be making Virtua Fighter 6?

Virtua Fighter is a long-running fighting series that was introduced way back when in 1993.

The last numbered release was Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown in 2012, and it’s been nothing but tumbleweed ever since. But Sega have recently renewed the trademark, so can we expect a brand new addition to the franchise?

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely, given that we’ve heard diddly squat in relation to the title.

Renewing trademarks to keep them in the fold is usual business practice, so we shouldn’t get too excited. But if were – just for a minute – what’s your money on? A remaster? A surprise new game?
