Tekken Producer States He Doesn’t Want DLC Characters in His Fighting Games
Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada, has recently said that downloadable characters won’t be to coming his fighting game series now or anytime soon. In a recent interview with Edge, Katuhiro stated that his fighting game characters are like “chess pieces.”
“They are essential items necessary in the game and we would never sell any of those individually,” Harada said.
While Katsuhiro stated that extra characters aren’t on the way, he didn’t rule out the possibility of costume or accesory add-ons via DLC.
”There are some strange people on Twitter who ask for really peculiar items like bikini suits for Lee Chaolan,” he tells Edge. “Obviously, we wouldn’t have had that in our original development plan, so if we were going to do it, we’d need to create it right now, without a budget – obviously we’d have to charge a little bit for such items.”
The next Tekken game from Katsuhiro is Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.
