Since Resident Evil 5, the gaming community has become a tad more wary of Capcom's downloadable content. Indeed, we've already heard complaints concerning the upcoming Jill and Shuma DLC for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which is currently only available to players who picked up the special edition.
So are the two additional fighters already on the MvC3 disc? The answer, as it turns out, is both yes and no. A couple gamers over at the Shoryuken community hacked a copy of the game to find assets of both Jill and Shuma already present; while usable, they remain somewhat unfinished. Credit for the hacking goes to "Krisan Thyme," while "Global-Trance" took some photographs as evidence.
In a note detailing Krisan's hacking exploits, GT described being able to play as Jill, though she is missing all her tag-in dialogue. Similarly, other characters have no lines when Jill is tagged into a fight.
"For one thing, although she has some voice work done and already on the disc, it appears as though she's still -missing- a good portion of dialogue," he wrote in his letter. "Namely, she's missing all of her tag-in vocals - she simply says nothing at the moment when she tags someone else in. Likewise it doesn't seem anyone else has any tag-in dialogue done for her either!"
"Furthermore her assists are suspiciously quiet.. there's no ending taunt to them at all, barely even an audible grunt to them actually. In fact, a lot of her voice work is notably low-volume.. Her winning battle taunt is almost indecipherable, she mutters it so softly. Jill also appears to be missing any form of victory blurb at the end of battle.."
Dialogue isn't the only issue -- GT also noticed balancing problems with the curvaceous BSAA agent. He describes her Machine Gun Hyper as "horrifically terrible," to a point where he has "a hard time believeing it's finished. If it's honestly done the way it is, then she'll probably have one of the worst hypers in the game." Toward the end of the note, he mentions that Shuma-Gorath is "working too."
Is Global-Trance upset at Capcom about the DLC being partially on-disc? Not at all. He believes the incomplete status of the DLC means players are paying for "whatever labor went into polishing her character and finishing her dialogue after the game itself went gold."
