New here!

Well yeah cuz it uses the same models like in street fighter. But you can't play the game like you played street fighter, the gamemechanic has changed. It's hard to explain it but it's kinda like, virtua fighter would change their gamemechanics and would play like tekken. You'd still have the same characters, same moves, but you the rules are different and you can air juggle, bound and get rage when you're hp is low.
Virtua fighter is also a 3D fighting game but it plays very differently from tekken, I don't know if you understand what I mean, but it's something like that

It's like gran turismo launching a new title but you're now able to use boost and crash other cars like in need for speed or burnout or somthing
