No 'Unfair' DLC Characters for Dead or Alive 5

Yosuke Hayashi has said that Dead or Alive 5 will not offer up any additional DLC characters. 

Indeed, the Team Ninja boss doesn’t agree with DLC characters at all, saying that they spoil fighting games’ balance.

“We have no plans to sell characters as downloadable content,” said Hayashi. “We don’t feel that it’s right for fighting games. We feel like this is a kind of sport, and you don’t change the rules for sports. Everybody plays by the same rules. You don’t have a 14-player soccer game versus an 11-player soccer game. That’s just not fair.

“It’s a similar thing to if certain people have all these characters and others don’t. It makes it an unfair game, and we don’t think that’s the right way to go for fighting games."

Dead or Alive 5 is out on September 25th, 2012. You can read our latest preview here.
