SEGA has released the Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown update 1.21 patch this October 29, and this is for bug fixes, and not a long list at that. For those in Asia, this will appear as Virtua Fighter 5 eSports update 1.21.
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown 1.21 Patch Notes:
■ Bug fix
-Fixed a bug where the tournament would not progress when rematching with a user who did not have good communication compatibility in the regular tournament mode.
That’s about it for this patch. Originally given out for free via PlayStation Plus, Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is a true return of the franchise, as our review gave it a glowing 9/10 and said, “Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate may not have been the announcement many Virtua Fighter fans were hoping to see for the franchise, but it certainly was a welcome one. What is considered to be the franchise’s best when it comes to exhilarating, smart and accessible combat, Ultimate Showdown proves that the series reigns supreme in the realm of 3D fighters. A classic re-energized with it’s visual facelift, Ultimate Showdown reminds us once more of why the Virtua Fighter series is so damn special. Hopefully this is a testing ground of some sort to pave the way to the much anticipated sequel. “
