Remember when we told you that we heard that Japanese-style Virtua Fighter 5 arcade cabinets were on their way to the United States? We can now confirm that.
What? How do we know? We played it!

I'm glad to say that I kicked everyone's ass... well, except for AngelsDon'tBurn - the guy's a cheater!
Virtua Fighter 5 was placed back in a corner on the second floor of the Seattle GameWorks. Two sit-down units were placed back-to-back, just like in Japanese arcades. Each had high-definition, widescreen displays, squatty ball joysticks (perfect for the underhand grip), and wonderful buttons - these were an absolute joy to play. Sega, more please!
Let's hope that we continue to see sit down-style cabinets come to the U.S.
