Harada stated that his games are a chess piece and all characters need to be accessible to everyone. That's why he's not charging a DLC fee for characters such as Kunimitsu, Ancient Ogre, Michelle, and Angel.
Man-E-Faces  +   1247d ago
I think he flip flopped because of the fiasco that Capcom had with Street Fighter X Tekken, if this was his stance all along WHY DO I NEED TO ENTER A CODE VIA PRE-ORDERING just to get these characters shouldn't they already be on the disc no code required? And Orge,Kunimitsu are apparently Gamestop exclusives as of now. I don't know about you but Day 1 characters that can be downloaded or should I say unlocked via code seems fishy to me and is only offering them up free to save face, I personally will save my money for DOA 5.

Holy crap i cant blieve people made a article about this, the ifnormation came from a cheesy forum thread,do not believe this people.

Stop jumping to conclusions.
Harada has opposed payed character DLC for a while. This has little to do with SFxT.
Free characters for Tag 2 have been known since the game was announced.

Also LOL @ DOA5. It's whatever man. Your choice/loss IMO.

Don't see why people would complain as if they're being ripped off. Even if these were to be sold as DLC, the game offers 50 ish characters on the disc, playable. That's more than any Tekken game ever has.

With that said I believe these are just unannounced characters, not disc-locked. I think they'll either be free DLC or simply available on release.

"Even if these were to be sold as DLC, the game offers 50 ish characters on the disc, playable. That's more than any Tekken game ever has."

Tekken Tag back in 1999 only missed Marshal Law, Dr Bosconovich and Gon; same on the PS2 version. Just because a game has 50+ characters doesn't write off its "ok" because of a big roster.

so, we gotten the word of the main man creating tekken games so far there hasnt been any dlc character routine up till this point, now its a wait and see approach

so dont fire your hater bullets at them too soon

Idgf if they charge for dlc or not, I will be buying this game day 1! I don't understand how ppl can just complain about dlc when no one forces u to buy it. I enjoy all my games even without paid dlc.
Iceman X  +   1247d ago
I agree, if you don't like the DLC price or what comes with it then don't buy it. I really can care less if these extra characters are on the disc or not. They are DLC which mean you can't have it unless you pay end of it. There is no difference if it was on disc or download, you people wouldn't even know if it wasn't for hacking ass kids anyway. If the DLC is the right price and i want it end of it. You just purchased game for $65 and now you're complaining about DLC that might be $5-10 more that you don't have to buy. Man people and this atitude of they owe me.... I work for a living to buy and enjoy nice things. If you're a gamer than you should know your hobbie is an exspensive one, if you don't know this they you should be playing games. Go buy comics or something els cheaper to meet your needs.

Well said bubbles.....
LastDance  +   1247d ago
because it shakes the integrity and balance online among other things, regardless of whether you BUY the dlc or not.

see street fighter x tekken

Back in the day, those hidden characters were locked away and rewarded for skill. Now they are rewarded for money.

Perhaps you should try harder to 'understand'
Man-E-Faces  +   1247d ago
I wanted to say what if you don't have internet access how are you supposed get these characters? Kind of smashes his stance that EVERYONE should have access to them.
If he was true to his word they would be unlocked via in game like beating the game with a certain character.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1247d ago
If you don't have internet access to download the free characters, then you won't have any online gameplay balance issues in the first place.
Gran Touring  +   1247d ago
Well, Harada and Namco stated that the DLC characters will all be unlocked for free in a few months. Harada's has already stated his disdain for DLC characters in fighting games, so we know that any dlc will more than likely be extra characterization parts.
LKHGFDSA  +   1247d ago

Holy shit! the doctor guy!
Very exciting to see there's these new/old characters!
Though I don't like the idea of having to unlock them with my real life money.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1247d ago
They're free.
AusRogo  +   1247d ago
Couldn't they just be secret characters or something?

Edit: or just free DLC since that bloke doesn't like paid DLC.

As of now, those 6 characters are exclusive to pre-orders at certain stores...eventually (in a couple of months) they will become available to everyone for FREE.
MrSmith  +   1247d ago
Harada said all DLC for TTT2 is free.
Magic_Spatula  +   1247d ago
Harada (as well as many other sources) have stated that all DLC characters will be free. These initial DLC characters are pre-order incentives and will be released to everyone at a later date. Again, they are pre-order incentives. The only thing they confirmed that would be paid DLC are extra costume pieces, and that they would be priced fairly. Also, the bonus costumes for certain characters created by notable manga/anime artists are included in the game already. Plus, from videos I've seen about new features, tutorial modes, different modes in Training Mode that helps newbies get into Tekken or vets improve their skills, World Tekken Federation, and many other things. It's probably the most content filled fighting game I've ever seen besides Soul Calibur 5. Namco knows how to make a fighting game, and when they make one, they make it right (unlike some other company).

I hope it's for free :) , i don't buy dlc's , i don't remember i bought one lol ..

can't wait for tekken !!
DivineAssault  +   1247d ago
bogus.. What happened to devs making a game COMPLETE from the get go? I think DLC should be made only to extend the gameplay.. Not a plan to make extra money..
SAE  +   1247d ago
yea , that's what i believe , i dunno why i get disagrees , i think people hate me here :( ...

unless they disagree because they buy dlc's ....
or don't like me for not buying a dlc ...
or just hate my name or picture which is not visible ..
or just don't like tekken ...


if you are one of them then nvm ...
DivineAssault  +   1247d ago
ppl will do that.. if so then i guess they like paying for things that devs completed before the game launched & plan on capitalizing on ppl with.. Thats just wrong but i dont even want this game as much as DOA 5 so i dont care.. Ive always liked DOA over tekken.. Less characters but very fun combat & story
IAmLee  +   1247d ago
It could just be unannounced DLC atm? why is everyone jumping the gun? Harada said all DLC for TTT2 is free. i'd understand your worry if it was capcom, but it isn't so have trust in tekken and the franchise.
TheBlackSmoke  +   1247d ago
Oh look, people crying about a game they have no interest in.

2012- the year of the entitled gamer
kingPoS  +   1246d ago
I like that Namco is using pre order incentives instead of relying heavily on paid dlc.

And if there so happen's to be tennis, bowling or even a revamped scenario mode, Then consider that DLC already paid for.
Tzuno  +   1246d ago
This game has so many characters that seems like a Mugen fighting game full of s..t. I don't even pirate this one.
