After effectively tricking us with its April Fools' trailer, Sega has released some more authentic footage of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, the latest update to Sega's 3D arcade fighter. If nothing else, the video (posted after the break) proves that Sega knows how to make a fighting game trailer: It's three minutes of in-game footage -- of fighting -- and nothing else. We can appreciate that!
Additionally, on his development blog, director Daiichi Katagiri offered details of a new costume system, which uses nudity for good. Final Showdown provides a skimpy "S-type" costume for characters -- underwear, basically -- to allow players to completely outfit characters from the most basic layer of clothing on up -- or, as Sega will quickly discover, to allow players to just fight in their undies.
