There was once as soon as a bit bit confusion this week regarding the announcement that bad trickster Tira was once as soon as coming to Soulcalibur VI. First of all, it appeared Tira will also be arriving as a pre-order bonus, then a day-one DLC personality, then even a season pass pre-order bonus. Bandai Namco in the end confirmed that Tira will also be purchasable, day one, as priced DLC or comes as a free bonus to those who select up the Soulcalibur VI season pass.

All the above was once as soon as reasonably a muddle. It was once as soon as made worse, throughout the eyes of many commenters, because it came about the least bit. The provision of Tira by means of a separate price-tag is being spotted by way of some as a cynical cash take hold of, in particular since the announcement were given right here forward of Bandai Namco has even finished revealing all the characters on SCVI’s number one roster.

At Gamescom, Soulcalibur pro-player Marie-Laure Norindr – known on the circuit as “Kayane” – managed to get some time with SCVI producer Motohiro Okubo and, among other subjects, asked regarding the week’s DLC controversy.

“Having her as part of the Season Pass and unlocked day one was once as soon as the result of a lot of internal discussion and debate all through the company,” Okubo stated. “As for the timing of the reveal, the pre-orders for the Season Pass started the day past and, since she’s a Season Pass bonus, we had to make each and every announcements at the equivalent time. Opinions do vary wildly about the ones announcements. I individually assume we can need to’ve been additional wary about one of the simplest ways we have presented all this.”

Okubo would moreover indicate that Tira did not, in fact, make the original decrease for the game, then again was once as soon as designed later, in particular on account of paying attention to fan requests for the hoop-spinning assassin.
