For anyone that has played through and lost out on the items and abilities due to the bug when fighting Kurt Ziza, I was able to (sorta) get around it. Load up the japanese version of the game, and use the boss warp cheat code to get to kurt ziza again. you will get Zansetsuken (I ended up with two of them as I had trouble not FIGHTING him over and over again) and the last Ansem report. Then save your game and load up the patched iso again and you should be set. speaking of, any update on if/when a new patch will be released? Just curious. I don't mean to be a pain.
