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.
