Tekken franchise has no plans to offer character DLC

by Bill Hess on April 18, 2012

The lead producer for the Tekken franchise has recently spoken out about the questionable tactics that rivals use in delivering downloadable content in the form of characters.  Katsuhiro Harada recently told Edge Magazine that he’s against character DLC, being that its too important for the main game.

“Tekken has never had DLC before and charged for it…This isn’t really directed at Capcom, I have always said this, but I see the characters and their move sets as chess peices – they are essential items necessary in the game and we would never sell any of those individually.”

“It’s Capcom’s business decsion,” Harada said when asked about recent controversial DLC in Street Fighter x Tekken.  When Tekken x Street Fighter finally arrives, don’t expect to be shelling out in the same fashion that Capcom has you doing.

    Wouldnt expect anything else. Tekken now has to be the only fighting game that doesnt have dlc or deliberately leave characters out so u have to fork out. tekken tag is goin to be nuts. Cant wait. Every character from every tekken game. At least 40 characters.
