Tekken 6 Won't Feature Secret Charcters

Post by iceyou88 on Mon Jul 06, 2009 7:18 pm

The age-old tradition of featuring unlockable characters in fighting games is “outdated” and “no longer useful,” according to Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada.

Harada-san explained that the unlock process was originally intended to increase the longevity of coin-op arcade machines.

“Why we locked the characters originally was that in the arcades, it was kind of to extend the life of the game by gradually unlocking characters. And also with the home versions as well, because you can rent games or whatever, it was to protect us against that.

“That’s kind of outdated now though, especially with online play. If we were to have locked characters it would irritate a lot of people, to be playing against others online and to not have all the characters available. So I think it’s no longer useful.”

True.

I am glad Harada is a person who thinks far. Not going by tradition but by a system that adapts to the current new environment Tekken players are in. Like the arcade release, and online gameplay.

Well done Harada! : )

Why do you say this? Do you think he's bad? Question Didn't he create all Tekken games?
