Recently, Tekken 7 game director Katsuhiro Harada talks about the future expansion packs of the upcoming fighting game Tekken 7. Harada confirmed on his official Twitter account that they will not feature classic characters on the game's upcoming DLCs. Instead, they will offer a special content for their fans who plan to purchase the future expansion packs.

According to the report from The BitBag, Harada said during his interview with IGN that players who owned the game's season pass will be receiving a unique game mode, exclusive costumes, special characters and 30 metallic costumes. It seems like Harada and the rest of the team are planning to add new content without featuring older characters through the game's expansion packs. In addition, Harada also mentioned about an upcoming free update. However, there are no further details regarding the topic yet.

Based on the report, fans might think that Harada's statement means that they will not be receiving classic characters and other contents in the latest entry. However, the Director tweeted some of the game's characters and costumes in their previous games. In addition, Harada's tweet could also mean that players cannot expect older characters to the game via paid DLC. Perhaps, the new Tekken characters might be featured on paid DLC, while classic characters will be released for free.

On the other hand, Tekken 7 will be applying a Season Pass system for the game's future DLCs. As reported, Tekken 7's Season pass will include new characters, game modes, stages, costumes and metallic costumes. As of the moment, it is highly recommended to wait for Bandai Namco's plans on how they will introduce the new content. Furthermore, they could also feature classic DLC packs to the game.

Meanwhile, Tekken 7 is confirmed to arrive on June 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With five more months to go, there's still a possibilty for further announcements. In addition, Harada might also reveal some of the details about the game's upcoming DLC in the following months.
