Steam (3/08) & PS4 (v1.03) update

Today's update mainly addresses bugs in Training Mode.
Note: The PS4 patch notes erroneously state Chōryō instead of Chōhi. Sorry about that!

Bug Fixes & Changes

  • Fixed Training Mode dummy (Ougi/Strategist)
    In Training Mode, the dummy would stop moving when Ougi or Strategist was selected from the Motion Behaviour menu and the Strategy gauge wasn't full enough.
  • Fixed Training Mode 'Hit Variations' (Counter)
    In Training Mode, when Hit Variations was set to Random, sometimes it would display as a Counter, even when it wasn't.
  • Fixed a soft lock in Training Mode
  • Fixed a freeze with Shokatsuryō
    Shokatsuryō's whirlwind would cause the game to freeze when scoring a certain number of hits.
  • Fixed a bug with Chōhi's Hiougi
    Blocking Chōhi's Hiougi sometimes caused the defending character to stop moving.

New Features

  • Adding support for Traditional and Simplified Chinese (PS4)
  • Added a Win/Lose display to Replay Mode.

Bug Fixes & Changes

  • Training Mode: changed Standing and Crouching to random when when Hit and Guard are set to random.
  • Training Mode: changed replay slot behaviour to replay a different random slot after a reset.
  • Training Mode: fixed a bug where the dummy would sometimes stop moving after a long sequence of hits connected when replaying post-hit behaviour.
  • Player Match: changed behaviour at result screen to take the player straight back to the room when another player joins or leaves.
  • Ranked Match: fixed a bug where some characters ranks would not reflect player progress when the game was played on a machine with no save data.

Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai Update

Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai was updated on all platforms.

  • Changed how post-match Character Select works in Player Match.
    Choosing "Select your character" at the result screen now displays a simplified character select and a character icon on your opponent's screen.
  • Leaving a room in Ranked Match
    This now works as follows:
    Custom Match - leaving will trigger a room search.
    Standby - you will be returned to Training Mode.
  • Ranked Match custom search
    This has been changed to retry the search after a set amount of time.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the game would lock up when performing a Ranked Match custom search.
  • Fixed an issue where you would gain experience points if you changed the Training Mode dummy while in standby for a Ranked Match.
  • Fixed the 'Go through a hardship' trophy so it unlocks correctly.
  • Fixed an issue in Training Mode where random playback would sometimes stop working.

Tournament beta released, new open beta available

Hi everyone!

First, many thanks to Brett and everyone that joined us at Anime Expo! The tournament was very exciting and everyone had a lot of fun!

Also thanks to everyone who participated in the June 25th tournament, that version performed well enough to be the new default for all players, so it has been pushed live already. However, some networking issues remained. We've been hard at work on them and are happy to put out a new beta for you all that should now have all netcode issues resolved.

Please try it out with your friends and let us know how it performs.

This version is an opt-in beta: to enable it follow the following directions:

  • In Steam Library, right click on Koihime Enbu in your game list
  • Open the "Properties" menu and navigate to the "Betas" tab
  • From the dropdown choose the "open_beta" beta
  • Closing the properties menu, Steam should update your game
  • After update it will show up as "Koihime Enbu [open_beta]"

Hopefully there should be no problems, but please report any issue you find in the open_beta report thread on Steam.

Thank you!
