New Virtua Fighter shots muscle in

In a flurry of Virtua Fighter 5-based activity, Sega has not only confirmed the kicker's release date, but has unleashed a horde of lovely new screens, too.

So treat your eyes to the pleasing plethora of pictures by hitting the Images tab above, and bask in the knowledge that developer and publisher Sega hasconfirmed a mid-February release.

The fighter features 17 different warriors, including two new faces just begging to be bruised. They included El Blaze, a Mexican wrestling champion and Eileen, who uses a Monkey Kung Fu style which she learned from her grandfather, who happened to be a baboon with a black belt.
