Virtua Fighter coming to mobile phones in Europe

Glu to release beat-'em-up legend this summer

Product: Virtua Fighter Mobile | Developer: Southend Interactive | Publisher: Glu Mobile | Genre: Fighting
For: Mobile

Virtua Fighter is coming to mobile in Europe, courtesy of Glu Mobile.

The game is due out in June, according to a roadmap published in industry magazine Mobile Entertainment.

It's not a huge surprise, given that Glu has a partnership with Sega to bring the latter's console brands to mobile.

This is presumably a Java game for western handsets, rather than the version that was announced last month for FOMA 950i phones in Japan.

It's undoubtedly one of the biggest and most respected beat-'em-up brands in the world. But there are two main questions about Virtua Fighter Mobile. First, can it work on a mobile? By which we mean the fluid 3D animation and the controls specifically.

And second, will the hardcore fans of Virtua Fighter turn up their noses at a mobile version? It's a tough sell, although Glu at least has experience of targeting such a picky console audience with Pro Evolution Soccer.

We'll bring you a hands-on preview as soon as we can, so click 'Track It!' for an alert whenever we cover Virtua Fighter Mobile.
