Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Trailer Unveils DLC Characters

View author's profile

A batch of downloadable characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 have been revealed. 

In the vid below, you’ll see Michelle, Ancient Ogre, Angel and Kunimitsu doing what they do best. The characters will be free for all those who pre-order the game. Later, the character pack will be released to all players, also for free.  

All of which is true to Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada’s word. "Tekken has never had DLC before and charged for it," he said recently. "This isn’t really directed at Capcom, I have always said this, but I see the characters and their move sets as chess pieces - they are essential items necessary in the game and we would never sell any of those individually."

Check out the vid below. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is out in September.

Sounds like a good reason to pre-order to me.

That so was a dig at Capcom as well.......not that they don't deserve it

Nice. Bit of an idle statement, considering they charge you 3 quid for a kangaroo costume on SC.

they are all as bad as each other!

They say after release but it will be out the next day or week, it isn't like there won't be enough characters for its initial roster. And it's about time they brought ogre back, he was awesome, Him and Heihatchi make a killer tag team :D

If you knew what QQ meant, you wouldn't be using it as tear emoticons, tool.

Hey 11:) I know about those MMORPG chaps & the origin of 'QQ'. But today it's original meaning has been surplanted by the more commonly accepted 'CRY MOAR'.

You still inferred the correct meaning of my sentence (thus understanding the use my contextual of 'QQ'), but thanks for revealing your vast knowledge anyways:)

if its free for those that pre-order and free at a later date for everyone else, why not put it on the disc. Why not spend a bit of extra time and make sure all the characters are available on the disc?

DLC announced....4 months before the game comes this what gaming has become? "At least it's free!" as if we're supposed to expect to be ripped off?

Why.. would you do this? I mean, sure, it's free. So then what's the point of making it DLC?
It's not as though they don't have the time to do it, this is a while before release, yet.

Not everybody has access to Live. =(

@16 it will be on disk, it's just giving those who are fans of the series an incentive to pre order it rathar than wait till it has a price drop

@27 and everyone else griping about the DLC released post-launch:

"Later, the character pack will be released to all players, also for free."

What part of that didn't you get? It's FREE all-around. It just gives the pre-orderers a little advance.

EA and Capcom shouldn't learn from this, they should learn from Platinum Games or From Software: Just release the whole game on the disc.

@23 She is in it and plays a very large role too. My favourite character hands down. I still remember playing the first TTT game in the Euro 3 tournament years ago. Good times.

perhaps they didn't have time to finish it before the disc was finished. since the game is coming out in october, its very likely that the on disc contents were submitted to microsoft for certification this month or last month.

the dlc certification process doesn't take as long, so they could be working on it after the disc went out.

i'm not saying it definitely won't be on disc content, but it definitely isn't guaranteed. its very possible that the preorder crowd will just get a code to download the content from live

@28 its a step in the right direction but while free is better than paying its still not ideal, the ideal thing would be include every character in the game to begin with, people see the word free and automatically assume its a good thing but all they are really doing is making it look like they are being generous when they arent its actually more of an underhanded way to make more money off them than just up and saying that they are charging for hem to make more cash like most companies do, especially as this is all in aid of taking customers from their biggest competitor rather than give anything to the people that buy it.

i dont really have a problem with preorder incentives altogether but i do have a problem when they are characters or levels when they have obviously been finished before the games release which brings me to 32, there isnt really any chance that these characters wouldnt be finished, all of hem have been in multiple tekken games in the past, their move sets havent really changed much since their first, Angel and Kunimitsu are even just reskined versions of 2 other characters in the game and always have been, the only work they needed to do for them is make and add the character modals and that isnt a big job once the games already up and running

I think the main focus here is that Namco is sticking to thier guns, he told us that this was going to be a Pre order incentive if I'm not mistaken. To have them unveiled is just that better in my book.
