They’re finally friends
Human sacrifice! Mass Hysteria! Dogs and Cats, living together! Sega and Bandai Namco have only gone and done it, they’ve only gone and seen two pioneering 3D fighting rivals finally shake hands. As revealed during this weekend’s Virtua Fighter Cup Tournament — Official Tekken crossover content is headed to Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown.
Now, before y’all lose your minds, we aren’t talking about characters, (at least not yet), but Sega has revealed that Tekken costume content will be making its way to VF5: Ultimate Showdown at some point in the future. The video below spotlights the gear in action, as Akira Yuki dons the gi and spiky chop top of Kazuya Mishima, while Lau Chan steps up to the plate as another brutal patriarch, Heihachi.
In a world of guest characters and fighting game crossovers, one has to admit that it is a shame we are not talking fully-fledged guest stars. But the costumes here look pretty darn authentic and are something of a cause for celebration. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more outfits revealed down the line, how can we not have Wolf/King, Sarah/Nina, or Brad/Paul?
Even if this is not a full-on “Vs.” crossover, it’s nice to see the two ’90s rivals finally stand together.
Neither a release date nor price was revealed for the Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown x Tekken Costume DLC, but we’ll be sure to bring you all the pertinent details right here on Destructoid when they are available. Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is available now on PlayStation.
