'Model 2 Collection' brings Virtua Fighter 2, Sonic the Fighters, more to PSN and XBLA


We didn't have to wait long to find out what Sega was teasing. As expected, the company revealed plans to release five games on Xbox Live and PSN that were originally released on the "Model 2" arcade system.

Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers, and Sonic the Fighters will all be released in Japan in 2012, for 800 Microsoft Points or 800 yen each, and all featuring online multiplayer. Sonic the Fighters features playable Eggman and Metal Sonic, and for the first time, an officially playable version of the Honey the Cat character, which was cut from the arcade game.

Virtua Striker and Cyber Troopers Virtual-On will also be released as part of the collection, but are not dated yet. Sega has yet to make any announcements outside of Japan.
