Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic The Fighters coming to the West sooner than expected

After yesterday's 3D Space Harrier revelation, there's more retro arcade goodness heading our way in the shape of Sega's Model 2 Collection, the first titles of which are hitting PSN as soon as next week in the US. The games had previously only been confirmed for Japan, but dates and prices for the US and European versions have now been announced. And they're cheap.

The first three games in question are Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic The Fighters, which will be released on PS3 in the US on November 27 for $4.99 each. European gamers will have to wait another week until December 5, where the games will each cost £3.69/€4.49. As for XBLA, the games will cost 400 MS Points each and land in both territories on November 28.

This trio of classics (well, duo of classics and Sonic The Fighters) has a distinct fighting theme, so hopefully racing and shooting themes will follow soon.

    Yes I can finally play Sonic the Fighters after all these years even though in all honesty it wasn't the best Sonic game ever released (it was actually slightly bad if I recall).

    they released it as part of the sonic gems collection on the gamecube. I have played it, and its pretty much fighting vipers but with sonic characters. Still, its a good game, in my opinion.

    It was horrible, but for five bucks it's worth the nostalgia trip.

    Awesome, though I already have all three (Fighting Vipers and VF2 on Sega Saturn, and Sonic the Fighters on Gamecube). Too bad they never released Sonic the fighters on the Saturn, that would have been fun.
