The official Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown side tournament just wrapped up, and we now have EVO’s first champion for the recently released update. While the tournament was definitely stacked with a ton of high-level talent, it’s no surprise that Fuudo of Team Razer eventually took home the gold. Shironuko showed amazing amounts of poise against Fuuduo’s teammate and fellow Shun player Itabashi Zangief, but unfortunately couldn’t make it past the Virtua Fighter legend.
Congratulations to all the top placers. Let’s hope we see the game next year as well!
