In June 2021, SEGA surprised locals and strangers with the launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 of Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown, an HD remake of the classic fighting title that originally debuted back in 2006. Unsurprisingly, PC gamers want to explore this re-release too.

At the wishes of the community, Seiji Aoki, producer of Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown, spoke during a recent interview with the Japanese portal Dengeki Online about the possibility of making a port for Steam. While he stated that the company is interested in making it happen, he stressed that there are some problems that must be solved first.

“The Arcade version is PC-based, so it’s technically possible. But if we launch a version for Steam the players will be scattered. Therefore, we must think about crossplay. To achieve crossplay we need to create a battle system that does not delay between platforms, as we have already done with titles from other companies, and create an environment that facilitates the game on any platform. For the remakes, I think it will be very difficult to achieve, “said Seiji Aoki.
