After Update 1.30 was released last week, some players encounter the "Akira Bug" - where your character is switched to a 10th Kyu-leveled Akira. Completing the match may result in the rank of the character you actually selected to reset to 10th Kyu. Sega released Update 1.31 to fix this issue, in addition to other issues including the Shun drink points synchronization.
Rough Translation until official English patch notes are released:
Beta Tournament Mode
- Reward for advancing through tournament bracket will be saved as the tournament progresses. That way, if you exit from the tournament before it is completed you will still get your rank gauge reward.
- What replays are shown in the main menu have been adjusted.
-Fixed a bug where the character used was changed to a 10th Kyu Akira in rank matches.
-Fixed a synchronization bug related to the display of Shun drink points in online battles.
-Fixed other minor bugs.
