Tekken Tag Tournament 2, due out in September, won't employ any of the DLC tactics that gamers have recently deemed underhanded, like day-one DLC, on-disc DLC, or platform-exclusive characters, producer Katsuhiro Harada told Eurogamer.
"Tekken's never really done that before and charged for it, however we did have an [unlock] system in Tekken one to five," he said. "The character locks were like that - we never took money for it but the concept itself was there. I think really the players' opinions and the heated discussion is whether you charge for it or not."
Pre-ordering Tag Tournament 2 will net you early access to a few special characters who'll subsequently be unlocked for everyone at no additional cost. Harada also said they'd consider adding DLC, but it wouldn't include characters or any other content that would give some players an advantage.
"There are some strange people on Twitter asking for really peculiar items like bikini swimsuits - and obviously we didn't have that in our original development plan! So if we were going to do that, we'd have to create that without the [original] budget, and we'd have to charge a little bit for those items," he said.
Yes, strange, weird, odd people asking for moar bikinis. Definitely not us. Nope.
