Harada: No paid DLC characters in Tekken, paid DLC vanity items a possibility

Posted by SFilp • April 17, 2012 at 9:42 a.m. PDT
Harada: No paid DLC characters in Tekken, paid DLC vanity items a possibility Edge-Online is reporting that Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken series producer, has a few differentiating opinions on DLC. He states that while no characters will ever be paid DLC, there might potentially be paid vanity items.

Here is a little excerpt to get you started.

"Tekken has never had DLC before and charged for it," he told us during Namco Bandai’s Global Gamer Day event in Las Vegas last week. "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."

Importantly, however, Harada has not entirely ruled out paid DLC in the Tekken series, though he says it would only be used for vanity items. "There are some strange people on Twitter who ask for really peculiar items like bikini suits for Lee Chaolan," he told us. "Obviously, we wouldn’t have had that in our original development plan, so if we were going to do it, we’d need to create it right now, without a budget - obviously we’d have to charge a little bit for such items."

Harada also said that characters could be made available early as pre-order incentives, but stressed that they would be free to other players and unlocked in the natural course of playing the game. But as for characters or items offering a competitive advantage, it seems, Namco’s position is final: no paid-for downloads. "I was saying this before the Capcom thing happened," Harada insisted. "My stance hasn’t changed."

Check out the full article over on Edge-Online.

Oh great. Now that comment about Lee Chaolan is going to be stuck in my head for a while.

It's like Harada reads all the mistakes of SFxT/Capcom, and learns from it.

I really am looking forward to TTT2, and many other of their future games. Namco FTW.

I've always truly enjoyed Tekken, from Tekken 3, and from a FGC standpoint, Tekken 4 and beyond.

I have very high hopes for TTT2, and TxSF.

sfxt is a great game but the capcom dlc policy ruined it (still keeping it and playing it)
it's nice to see they're not taking this road with tekken (thought there is a payable chars in sc5, and namco is, i think, behind the latest saint seya game with already payable dlc chars ( around 4 euro each)
it is also nice to have a direct answer than constant trolling

"...unlocked in the natural course of playing the game..."? Does this mean that many characters in the game would be "timed-releases"? or is it just a matter of playing thru the game where you'll unlock characters by meeting certain conditions?hmm...

Tekken/Soul Calibur series use both, so even if you haven't completed the game with all the base characters, you still unlock everyone.

Seriously though I am so buying this game, add Q to the roster and this will officially be the better game compared to SFXT.

Shoutouts to some of you never even played a Tekken game and blowing up the game because it's too hard once it comes out...
Must say that Harada and NamDai are playing PR and marketing exactly as the market needs, maybe this'll make Capcom take some of their ideas back for a few years.

JiCi said on April 17, 2012 at 10:46 a.m.

Technically speaking, can you blame Harada for going to extreme lengths and care for the Tekken series ? He's the producer of the series ever since the first game. He has known about the community and their needs from the beginning. Ono didn't work in SF until SF4...

I'm glad to see that Harada is pumping the console version with stuff. Now if he could just had an arcade mode for both 1-vs-1 and 2-vs-2 battles, complete with individual prologues, cutscenes and endings, and an English/Japanese/Native voice option, that would be perfect.

#32
RedWaltz79 said on April 17, 2012 at 10:50 a.m.

I'm not sure why people keep saying that Namco understands the gaming community. This is how they have always done things, and like most Japanese companies, they are very, very, very slow to change.

Have you NEVER played Tekken 6? If so, you should have known that it would be this way. What makes this funny is that this comment section should be purely full of Namco/TTT2 praise and it's still has a fair number of you in here STILL TALKING ABOUT CAPCOM.

I traditionally like more 2d fight games (= capcom) but after the SXT trash Capcom dropped at us It was the last game I ever bought from them (but since I'm weak, probably I would buy a MvC4...).Now, with the 20 extra bucks Cashcom wants us to pay for 12 On disc unlock characters I'l buy a used Tekken 6 or Bazblue or save for TTAG2 AND support the next Nanco games. Goooood bye CASHCOM!

I respect Harada and Namco b/c they kept putting out new FG's during the "dark days" (2002-2008) and keeping the the FGC alive while Capcom did nothing.

Capcom only releases new FG's when the market is profitable to them. All their antics show they only care about $$ and not their fans.

Just like chess you cant buy the board and pay for the pieces separately or like buying a hamburger and paying for the patties separately, you need all of it, just happy Harada nvr changed his ways due to greed.

Yes it is. Did you not learn anything from Chris Brown? He's a bigger star now than he ever was before beating Rihanna. All he had to do was beat his b!tch and take a year off...look what wonders it did for him. All for being a HORRIBLE person.

@43

Uhhh, if you are starting to go broke off of games that don't sell enough, you would stop making them, too. SF3 was not profitable at all back in the day. They were actively losing money from their fighters at the time. Why would they keep doing something that was hurting instead of helping?

They chilled out because they were over saturating the market and not getting any good returns on those investments. I love how the FGC thinks these people should be thinking of them and them only as if they don't have jobs to keep and kids to feed.

gammabolt17 said on April 17, 2012 at 11:26 a.m.

Can't argue with that there. The only thing that kills me is that instead of just fully praising Namco people are still talking bout Capcom. If you like one girl, you're not gonna talk to her about how you like her better than that "other girl" are you? It's like you still have feelings for that other chick.

I don't just mean you, I mean the FGC in general.

If you talked to Harada in person I'm betting he doesn't wanna hear you guys bringing up Capcom over and over. You may be dissing them and giving Namco the seal of approval, but even in dissing them you seem to be more focused on worrying about Capcom instead of actually talking about TTT2 like we should be ultimately doing.

yup.the tekken, king of fighter,bloody roar and dead or alive teams kept the FC alive during the dark ages.if you look up the documentary on sf4, capcom didnt think it would sell well either.ono pushed hard for its release and eventually got it green lighted. once they made money off it they started getting fat heads thinking there games are better than anyone else's. they didnt bring sf back. WE DID

just one source: look up history of ono for more information.

half the retards in here have never owned a Tekken game in their life. you can just tell who.

@ 47 gammabolt17 not all publicity is good. it all depends on one's status. as you said chris brown wasnt known like that. Capcom on the other hand are huge. lets take Tiger Woods, ever since the cheating fiasco, he has lost countless of sponsors and lost millions and millions of dollars due to it all. his form has never been the same also. that publicity has not been good to him.

#60
gammabolt17 said on April 17, 2012 at 11:57 a.m.

@Strider

I know, that's why I made sure to mention the FGC as a whole. It's pretty much all of us now. I try to show Capcom love because I know I might be nearly the only voice of support they got as far as the FGC goes (no thanks to Capcom's late actions, of course).

I mean, there's people here in this exact thread dissing Capcom because they stopped making something that didn't profit. I mean what's more important, feeding your kids/family, or making something you will certainly lose on more than you will gain? You don't keep a business running by breaking yourself on sh!t that doesn't make a profit. SF3 was not making them profit. They had to slow down on the fighters, they were LOSING.

#61
gammabolt17 said on April 17, 2012 at 12:02 p.m.

@64

And even in all that losing endorsements, tournaments, losing millions of dollars (and still being rich enough that it barely matters, if at all), even losing his form, Tiger is still all over the place, to the point where when he finally won one a few weeks back, people were all on that "Tiger Woods is back!" crap. Everyone still has their eyes on Tiger, and Tiger is still the center of the golf world, even when he is not deserving. EA's new game is still named "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2013". Yes, that publicity has been absolutely horrible for Tiger.

RedWaltz79 said on April 17, 2012 at 12:10 p.m.

I didn't like Tekken 6 (horrible Scenario Mode, terrible netcode, stupidly designed bosses (Azazel/NANCY-MI847J), crappy character designs (Alisa/Lars), and a lacking training mode. That was the first Tekken game I had ever gotten rid of within a week of owning and I have been buying Tekken games since the first one came out. I know the competitive community loved it for in person tourney's, but it just wasn't for me.

That said, this game looks like Tekken 6.5, with C&Ped characters from Tekken 6. I'll probably wait to decide on whether I want it or not. Not to mention, Tekken games tend to drop like rocks in prices after a few months. I remember Tekken 6 selling for like $20.00 like six months after release.

BTW - I like how people canonize Harada, when he has a lot of mistakes in his game making past.

Kaiyuss said on April 17, 2012 at 12:34 p.m.

Something that a lot of people don't seem to understand, is that during the decade that Capcom stopped making SF games, Namco continued making Tekken games. Each Tekken game has always been packed with more content (modes, costumes, etc) than the last. Capcom showed back up on the casual radar a few years ago with SF4, locking out basic stuff like extra character skins.

It's almost like Namco continues to take steps forward, and has for years. Then Capcom gets back on the scene, taking us HUGE steps backwards.

I also hope people realize that when those 12 DLC characters come out, they'll be implemented into the core game. So if you don't pay up, you'll be handicapped unless you pay for those extra characters, even if it's just to practice against them. It's not going to be a "Super" style expansion.

#67
Bynoe said on April 17, 2012 at 12:37 p.m.

I think we can all agree Harada's DLC policy is commendable... but I'm in agreement with anyone who says T6 was bad and TTT2 looks too close to it... perhaps it has something to do with getting older and better at games and therefore seeing how exploitable certain mechanics, etc. are, but as someone who spent untold hours playing T5/DR and used to go to arcades and enter tournaments whenever I could I really hated almost everything they did with T6 and feel like the series is in need of some fundamental changes to get back to form and unfortunately TTT2 doesn't look like it. Nonetheless I will look at it closely just because of all the fun I used to have with the series, and hearing Harada's DLC policy does help me want to get back into the series.

I personally am not too mad with MvC3/UMvC3. UMvC3 definitely came out too early though. And as far as the DLC characters Jill and Shuma... Let's be honest. Nobody really plays them except maybe a few. I completely forget about their existence.

antiheroforhire said on April 17, 2012 at 1:17 p.m.

I've never been a fan of the mechanics in Tekken, and never liked the games in general. I haven't played a Tekken game since probably the PS1 era - but I can agree with everyone saying that his attitude toward DLC is commendable whether or not you're a Capcom fanboy or a Tekken nut.

I personally believe game mechanics (such as gems, characters) shouldn't be priced and sold as DLC (at least in a multiplayer, competitive fighting game) and I definitely believe Capcom messed up on SFxT.

I believe DLC in fighting games should be "vanity" items such as costumes that are purely aesthetic and don't offer anyone an advantage over people who choose not to purchase it. But, that's just me.

TL;DR: Good job on not gutting games pre-release and selling it all back to the consumer as DLC.

anon1010 said on April 17, 2012 at 1:19 p.m.

gammabolt17 said on April 17, 2012 at 1:30 p.m.

@77

What does that have to do with YOU saying people think the sun revolves around Capcom even though that's really all you talked about in the comments section. This is what InitialR (#70) said: "People are going to pbuy TTT2 just because of the DLC fiasco, expect it to be easy or play like SF, and then drop it after they find out how difficult it is or how different it is from SF."

That is VERY similar to your first post, where you said people are only talking about DLC because of Capcom, yet for some reason he thinks the world revolves around Capcom for saying it, though. All he is saying is that people are gravitating at this because of the DLC fiasco, just like you said the only reason someone asked that question was because of the DLC fiasco. He didn't say everybody. He was obviously just talking about people defecting because of their stance on the DLC issue.

So, yes, I know exactly what I'm contesting. Not a damn thing. I also know the only reason you commented both times was to hate on Capcom. Which is why I said you must think the sun revolves around them, too. It doesn't matter that Harada was asked the question in relation to Capcom's actions. If that's the case, then why did you just chide InitialR for mentioning SF when the question is in direct relation to Capcom's actions? Do you have any idea what YOU'RE contesting?

#79
trufenix said on April 17, 2012 at 1:31 p.m.

@80, Tekken has without a doubt the lowest learning curve of all the "civilized" fighters. Almost no execution barrier, no freaky gauges or rules, simple character designs, and plenty of success for just mashing like a madman.

If anything, people are put off because its way too simple.

#80
EG2 said on April 17, 2012 at 1:36 p.m.

I love how gamers have such selective memory and are singing Namco (Scamco's) praises. People have short memories. No one remembers Ace Combat, Beautiful Katamari, SCIV, or SCV, all with some form of "on-disc" DLC? I think it's important to note that this is a port of an existing arcade game. Maybe Tekken's producer is anti-DLC, but certainly not Namco. They were one of the first and current offenders you're clamoring to support.

Darkyellow said on April 17, 2012 at 1:48 p.m.

@truefenix

Stay free homie. Tekken learning curve is essentially linear up to a certain point and then exponential in terms of difficulty. Anyone can say the know the game because they hit all the commands in training mode, but situational stuff is huge in Tekken and couple that with the fact that you will have to know situational things with 50+ characters and it is not easy.

The Virtua Fighter crowd talks crap about Tekken like its a retarded game for babies.

The Tekken crowd tries to do the same thing to the Street Fighter people.

Really nice.

You have to study the matchups in every fighting game. Tekken doesn't have a monolopoly on that.

Tekken's low barrier of entry is actually one of its strongest virtues. It means you can be competitive without rhythmically tapping your life away in training mode. How is that a bad thing?

They dont need paid dlc characters cause they just do a capcom and release another version of the same game(cough8darkressurrectioncough)

He has a great policy and I know he was referring to Tekken but I ain't praising Namco/Bandai since I still paid $4.99 for damn Yoda in SCIV.

If you're good at VF, you can probably be good at any other fighting game given some time.

I'm not excited because I KNEW they wouldn't do this. This isn't Namcos stance on DLC characters. Granted that one Naruto game had Lars as an additional character for those who pre-ordered to the game or bought it brand new (I think you can unlock him though).

"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."

^^^^^ hellz yeahz

I'm surprised so many people don't play Tekken and thus don't know about the insane amount of customisation that game has.
Every character as standard clothes. But every character also has 2 alternate outfits (some with 3(Capcom charge you for those)) and they give you ability to buy a huge range of clothes and items in colours and slight variations.

Seriously. Such a huge bulk of this thread has completely forgotten about SCIV and SCV, and the piss-poor port of Tekken 6.

Harada sees that you're all irrationally upset. He's playing you like a fiddle.

Yeah, great guy. He's treating you all like you're stupid and you're cheering him on. FGC, I am disappoint. AGAIN!

@26

And what's even more sad is that those 12 characters aren't really free. U'd have to spend over $300 just to get them 4 months in advance. Now how fair is dat??. I hate the fact that everybody don't like what capcom is doin but yet they r still buyin sfxt(notice I only mentioned sfxt).
