The “Legendary Pack”, which will launch alongside Ultimate Showdown on June 1, will add alternate skins for every character on the roster, replicating the classic “Virtua” look that took the arcade scene by storm back in 1993. While this turns back the clock for classic characters such as Pai, Wolf, and Sarah, it’s going to be fun to retroactively see latter-day fighters such as Vanessa, El Blaze, and Eileen recreated in beautiful, box-headed glory.
In addition to the retro skins, the Legendary pack will also include a “Classic” U.I., which replaces the redesigned health bars and on-screen prompts with those of the original release. The Legendary Pack will retail for around $10. It bears repeating that Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown will also be part of June’s PlayStation Plus offerings. Once the title leaves PS+. it will retail for $30, which includes the Legendary Pack.
