Fighter of the Year nominations revealed

The fighter at the top of many a fighting game fans shortlist in 2012 is, without a doubt, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. However, the colon in that game's title is crucial, as Virtua Fighter 5 originally hit US shores in February 2007, and rereleases are not considered for awards. Still, this year wasn't without a strong lineup of original fighters. See who made the cut in the video below.


Check back on December 15 to find out GamesRadar's 2012 Fighter of the Year.
