Tekken 7 has Sold Over 5 Million Units
Tekken series lead and Bandai Namco esports boss Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to announce a great milestone for Tekken 7. The very popular 3D fighter has now sold over 10 million copies worldwide as of December 2019.
As was the case when it reached the 3 million and 4 million units sold milestones, Harada posted a new artwork of the game’s characters in celebration. You can check out that image below:
TEKKEN7 had achieved Over 5 million sales (Achieved in December 2019)! We recorded Over 49million copies sales for the series.鉄拳7が500万枚超を達成（2019年12月現在でシリーズ累計は4900万枚超）! 記念イラストに新シーズンのキャラクターが追加されました!#TEKKEN7 #TEKKEN pic.twitter.com/xgaqkxJNWz — Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN) February 21, 2020
In a very expected Harada move, he also sneaked himself into the artwork. You’ll need to zoom in a bit to see him, so we did just that for you:
Akuma, Geese, Noctis and Negan mains shouldn’t exert too much effort trying to find their favourite characters in the image. Apparently, it’s a private party and guest characters were left out.
Tekken 7 is currently the 15th best-selling fighting game of all time. The series’ top seller is still Tekken 3, though, having sold over 8.5 million copies since its launch and is currently in 7th place. Both games are no match for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, however, which is at the number 1 spot with 17.68 million units sold and still rising.
In case you’re wondering what makes Tekken 7 so popular among fighting game fans, you can pick up a copy for yourself on either PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4.
