SEGA has announced Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, an Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network version of their popular fighting game.

With a reworking of the mechanics and finer balance the game should be the definitive version of the fifth iteration of the series. The control system has been designed with novices in mind, though it has all the depth that the experts have come to expect.

It will also offer all new arenas, as well as two new characters: Virtua Fighter 3’s Taka-Arashi and a completely fresh face, Jean Kuno, of which like every other combatant can be customized.

It’s due for release Summer 2012.
