The first batch of downloadable characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 have been revealed.

In a new gameplay video below, Michelle, Ancient Ogre, Angel and Kunimitsu are shown strutting their stuff. The characters are free to those who pre-order the game, due out in September. After a short period of time they will then be made available for free to all players.

Last month Tekken designer Katsuhiro Harada confirmed to Eurogamer that TTT2 will not feature paid-for DLC locked onto the retail disc.

"Tekken's never really done that before and charged for it, however we did have an [unlock] system in Tekken one to five," he said.

"The character locks were like that - we never took money for it but the concept itself was there. I think really the players' opinions and the heated discussion is whether you charge for it or not."

It seems some fans didn't get the "free DLC characters" memo however. After the video was revealed Harada was attacked on Twitter by angry fans.

His response: "Just because it's DLC doesn't mean it's paid DLC. U GUYS ALWAYS JUMPING THE GUN THANK U SO MUCH."
