    If this is the surprise Harada had for e3 I’m gonna be disappointed

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oh? So are F2P fighters the new thing now?

    • xMCXx

      Apparently.
      Or Freemium in general.

  • HeatPhoenix

    Oh god here we go

  • MosquitoLemon

    whatever, so long as it has King I’ll play, hahaha

      You’re in luck!

    F2P Tekken, okay. What’s next? BlazBlue MMOFPS?

  • bloodiOS

    Should’ve made it available for the PS4, too. 1080p at a constant 60fps with effective edge-smoothing solution would drastically improve one’s experience with Tekken.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    I don’t see the problem

  • Bec66

    Free to play? what does that mean, we don’t have to pay anything to download it?

    • xMCXx

      Exactly that.
      But you’ll probably have to pay for characters and such.

  • PrinceHeir

    Dead or Alive and now Tekken.

    i don’t think this is a problem at all.

    im more worried on how will you pay for other characters.

    Tekken Tag 2 has around 60+ characters

    and we’re not even sure if this Tekken is based on Tag 2 or just single character.

    i’ll stick with full game thanks :P

    • MosquitoLemon

      Yeah, I think this is more of a thing to get people into Tekken, just like the DOA thing is to get people into DOA. Create a larger userbase for online = better spread of players. Right now if you play any fighter online and you suck, you WILL lose. Keeping a game’s online element going has been one of the major challenges this gen. Shooters will always have their crowd, but fighters?

      • PrinceHeir

        yeah.

        despite the resurgence of fighting games.

        its still a niche and hardcore crowd compare to other genres especially shooters and RTS

        oh well as more people get to play it, the better!

  • DarthBrian

    I like free.

  • DriftSlave

    Harada was always against making people pay for characters. The DLC characters for Tag2 were all free, if anything my guess would be timed released characters.

    • Elvick

      Do you mean like League of Legends? Doesn’t that alternate characters available for free?

      • DriftSlave

        no just generally expanding the roster until it’s complete. Lets just say, for the sake of argument that on release day the game has 10 characters, by 5-6 months down the road the roster would have filled out close to that of Tag2. However thats just my guess.

        • Budgiecat

          then how do they make money?

  • Elvick

    Would like to know what, if anything, this is based on. Is it supposed to be something new? Or is it like DoA5’s demo/freemium model?

    Since it has a new name, I’d assume it’s supposed to be new?

  • Hinataharem

    I feel like its going to be some online fighter mmo-thing.

  • dez-e-ray112

    So its a bit similar to Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters.

  • Bob Obb

    I wish they would’ve gave more details, this just seems like an attempt to steal Tecmo’s thunder.

  • DragonSix

    Please do it like the hugely successful DOTA 2 model: all of the chars and gameplay is free, and make us pay for stage and character customizations. It actually works pretty damn well in DOTA 2, and I can’t see it be any less successful here.

  • tubers

    So F2P will really be a significant part of the future eh.. even for the actual consoles..

    *also looks at VITA*

    why not on ps vita („#゚Д゚)
