[QUOTE] Because nobody except a couple of die-hard would buy them? Ah, or do you mean because you would need to future-proof the concept because of the new characters constantly added to the game? Well, then... 100Y for a group of 5 characters by this artist, with possible overlap between different artists? [/QUOTE] In your scenario, I assume everyone is paid in advance, at the very least via a minimum guarantee on DLC sales until some royalties system eventually kick in (but I don't think they'd even bother with that and simply ask for a flat fee). There are 22 characters to draw minimum. For practicality, let's assume Capcom suddenly gives up and stays at 22 max. That's still quite a hefty workload; hell, it might be more than what Akiman had to do for Star Ocean V. Even at JPY100 for 5 characters, that's only JPY20 revenue/character/purchase for Kinu, and you have to assume neither Capcom, Dimps nor Sony nor Steam are taking any cut out of this purchase despite the additional costs of integrating and digitally distributing those drawings into the game. And no VAT. I assume Capcom would want at the very least $40.000 revenue to justify this insane entreprise (and that's practically charity at this rate), which we can convert loosely for the sake of arguemathics into JPY4 Millions. So you'd need to sell 40.000 of those JPY100 DLCs to reach this revenue (again, with no cut for Sony or Steam, and no VAT). A more realistic figure would be JPY1500 per artist pack, and you get all 22 characters. That raises the value of each illustration to roughly 50~60 yens + tax, everyone can realistically get a very small cut out of it. Still very risky for Capcom but not "sorryJimyouarefired" risky. It could be justified as a PR move or a driver for the digital store's activity.I assume the few people who'd give a damn about this DLC would be OK with that price. Wouldn't you? ---- I might be missing on some smartphone app collaboration but I believe Kinu's next game-related involvement will be in [URL=https://twitter.com/3DS_Culdcept/status/710747119108235264]Culdcept Revolt[/URL] this summer.
