Street Fighter X Tekken producer Tomoaki Ayano has said he is “pretty disappointed” some player have found a way to play the locked, downloadable content for the game before its released.
Speaking with Gamespot, Ayano said while its disheartening, he is impressed with their hacking skills.
“Personally, I was really surprised when I heard the news that the characters had been hacked, basically,” he said. “So I was pretty disappointed by that. I was really surprised at how skillful the hackers were, basically.
“But I was really kind of disappointed that it created this kind of environment where a bunch of players were playing the characters but a bunch were unable to play with them.”
The 12 downloadable characters will be released for free along with the Vita version, while console players will be charged $20/1,600 MSp to unlock the DLC.
The set contains six extra characters each from Tekken and Street Fighter.
Street Fighter x Tekken is out now on PS3 and Xbox 360, and hits PC in May. The Vita version is out this fall.
