Fans have been wondering what the latest patch of “WWE 2K16” would bring, since the wrestling simulator has had a few problems since it was launched.

While it wasn’t stated that the bugs would be fixed, a Twitch livestream from 2K Games has confirmed that NXT Champion Finn Balor would be getting a new and improved entrance when patch 1.03 launches.

Those who have seen the entrance in the game and Balor’s spectacular entrance in NXT know that the video game version doesn’t match the movement or fluidity of the athlete. Many assumed that it was due to limitations within the game and felt that the entrance was the best that could be done.

It turns out Balor didn’t choreograph the entrance animation seen in the game but did do the motions for one that hasn’t been released yet, according to Attack of the Fanboy. The said entrance will be part of the 1.03 patch for “WWE 2K16,” which should please fans of the popular NXT star.

As of this writing, it is not yet known if the new entrance animation will replace the one currently in the game or if it will be added as an option in the game’s create-an-entrance mode. It’s also not yet known if Balor choreographed entrances for his regular and demon versions in the game, since they are different from one another.

Still, the fact that the patch will fix the entrance is good news for fans of the game and implies that it might fix other entrances as well, among other problems. The game does have a few glitches and bugs, like Tyler Breeze’s entrance not showing his cellphone video on the NXT arena, so hopefully the new update takes care of such problems. 

Despite the issues, “WWE 2K16” has proven to be a success, righting the many flaws that plagued last year’s game and adding a number of new features. Fans can purchase the title right now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

A season pass is also available for US$24.99 (AU$34.23). It grants players access to all downloadable content (DLC) for the game, including the recently released “New Moves Pack” and future content such as Finn Balor’s “Takeover London” opponent, Samoa Joe.
