After reappearing in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Virtua Fighter may be getting a reboot – report

If you’re someone with a taste for Virtua Fighter, but are kind of sick about having to boot up Yakuza or Like a Dragon to play modern ports of the series, some good news may be in the pipeline. According to a leaker who has made some accurate predictions in the past, a Virtua Fighter reboot may be in the works.

However if this Virtua Fighter leak courtesy of MbKKssTBhz5 on Twitter is accurate, then it could mean a fresh lease on life for one of the fighting game genre’s oldest franchises. One seperate from the hip of excellent games like Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

There are single player and multiplayer elements that are targeting casual and core players including competitive players.”
