Regarding Jump Force being open sourced, the modders that brought up the point have since taken down their posts. The creator of this Shaggy mod also confirmed that the game isn’t open source. My apologies! But still, enjoy playing as Shaggy!
So we probably won’t be seeing Shaggy in Mortal Kombat 11 after the official confirmation of his exclusion. Some people are bummed out but others are relieved. The modders refused to back down though. Through their dedication, we now have Shaggy in Jump Force instead! Good enough right?
The relative speed at which this mod was added is due to the fact that Jump Force was open source. We’re not sure if that was intentional on the developer’s part for the modding community or just a mishap. Either way, pretty sure they didn’t want the game cracked either.
Shaggy was added into Jump Force by replacing Vegeta’s character model. This is why you’ll notice his oversized gloves in the game. As well as the moveset of the Saijin prince. Pretty interesting to reskin one of the angriest characters in anime history with a hippie from Scooby Doo, but here we are.
The drawback of the mod was a lack of facial animations since the modders were relatively fresh in the business. Oh, speaking of which, major props to BeatzYT3 and character artist vaanrose for bringing Shaggy to Jump Force with their talented abilities. You can find the mod here.
The mod is only available for the Jump Force PC edition, of course. It adds a bit of flavor to an otherwise disappointing game. This is coming not just from us, but a lot of fans.
This includes fans of anime, fighting games and just gamers in general. Almost nobody reviewed or shed a positive light on the game due to its heavily unfinished nature.
The graphics were interesting but not fitting of an anime-centric game in my opinion. The gameplay gets repetitive rather fast and the immersion is quite easily broken often.
The cutscenes in the game are laughably bad at some points, sometimes they don’t make any sense to be there in the first place.
The most surefire way of retaining any users in this game is through these mods to keep it fresh. Even then, we’re not certain that the people wanting to try it out would even buy the game. For all we know, they might as well be cracking and downloading the pirated version.
Either way, Jump Force didn’t exactly jump into a good launch. But for those that are still interested, Jump Force is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
