It seems that the first batch of downloadable characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been revealed. In the video embedded above for your viewing pleasure, four of the new characters, Michelle, Angel, Ancient Ogre and Kunimitsu have been revealed. The video which is a brief gameplay trailer of all the four characters is set to arrive for free to those who pre-order the game that is set for a release later this year in September. Reportedly, after its release the downloadable characters will be made available to all players after a “short period of time”.
Last month apparently, Katsuhiro Harada who is a designer for Tekken told the folks over at Eurogamer that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will not feature paid-for DLC locked onto the retail disc. He said, “Tekken’s never really done that before and charged for it, however we did have an [unlock] system in Tekken one to five. 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 your charge for it or not.” With that said however, it seems that some avid fans of the game didn’t hear the news about the free-DLC characters and proceeded to harass Harada on Twitter. His response to them read, “Just because its DLC doesn’t mean it’s paid DLC. U GUYS ALWAYS JUMPING THE GUN THANK U SO MUCH.”
