Screenshot slide show: Virtua Fighter 5

Sega returns to the fighter stage with the latest Virtua Fighter game. Virtua Fighter 5 features some of the prettiest visuals the series has seen yet, and it shows just how far Sega has come since the days of dancing cube people and 20-foot-high floating jumps. Virtua Fighter 5 hits the PlayStation 3 on February 20, 2007.

The gang's all here in Virtua Fighter 5--and they look a lot more attractive, thanks to the PlayStation 3's graphics processing power.

Lei-fei needn't worry. Jacky brought enough hair gel for both of them.

Lau isn't doing some crazy, spinning kick. He just got smacked by a martial artist girl one-quarter his age.

Those big pants are called hakama, and they're usually worn by swordsmen. They sure have a stylish flower design, though.

This is the refreshing perspective of a guy who's about to be knocked unconscious with a boot to the head.

A pirouette can be as powerful as a punch in the hands of the right fighter.

Virtua Fighter 5 doesn't come with 3D glasses or any gimmick of that sort, but it would be so awesome if it did. That hand would feel like it was flying at your face!

The moves aren't as memorable as Street Fighter II's Dragon Punch or Hadoken, but Virtua Fighter 5's punches will still pack a mean kick. And its kicks will pack a mean punch.
