Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Gets First DLC

Namco Bandai has unveiled the first (of hopefully, many) Tekken Tag Tournament 2 DLC Characters. The four new DLC characters are Kunimitsu, Michelle, Angel and Ancient Ogre. No word whether these will be a download pack, or timed retailer pre-order exclusives. What we do know, however, is that they will be absolutely free:

As far as DLC, we don’t have concrete plans yet, but the way I’m thinking though is that the characters and such are like pieces that are necessary for a chess game,” Harada continued. “So you wouldn’t want to sell them, because some people would have them and some wouldn’t. If we have DLC characters or stages, they would be free. We might use them for pre-order bonuses though, because the retailers really like it. That doesn’t mean they’d be exclusive forever though. That just means you’d get it earlier, for a certain period. So the players, they get to see a variety of different characters from the different pre-orders and such. The retailers get their pre-orders so they’re happy and if the retailers are happy, we’re happy. So that makes everyone happy.

Go ahead. Try to complain.
