Harvest Moon creator, Yasuhiro Wada, has some big plans for his upcoming game, Little Dragons Cafe. However, DLC is not one of the things that are in the plans.
Speaking to Gematsu, Wada, said that there are no DLCs in the plans, but if the game is successful and becomes a series on its own, he has more ambitious ideas to implement in the sequel.
Gematsu: Are you planning any post-launch downloadable content?
Wada: “If it becomes a series. For now, no. But if it becomes a series, there is definitely a possibility. There are a lot of things I want to do for this franchise. Little Dragons Cafe is a brand new IP and a big risk we’re taking, and we did our best to make the best game with our budget and want to see it succeed. If it succeeds, then what successful game doesn’t have a sequel? I have a lot of ideas, and it’s very difficult to implement everything into this first game. If Little Dragons Cafe is successful and people are willing to see more, then in the sequel we’ll be able to take more of a risk and implement more things that the fans are asking for.”
So with Little Dragons Cafe, what you see is what you get, nothing hidden behind additional paywalls. Plus if people like it, there’ll be more Little Dragons Cafe to come.
