Tekken 7 has achieved a new milestone for Bandai Namco. The latest entry in the series is now the best-selling game in the franchise. According to a tweet by Creator Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken 7 has sold more than 9 million copies.

These numbers might not be as big as GTA or RDR numbers, but they are very impressive for the popular fighting game. Tekken 7 has beaten the previous record of Tekken 3, which sold 8.5 million copies, making the classic entry the second best-selling game in the series.

The tweet also revealed the cumulative sales of the entire Tekken franchise - a glimmering more than 53 million copies. This number will keep growing with time and will also get a big boost when a new Tekken entry is released.

Possible New Entry

Given the success of Tekken 7, it is obvious that Bandai Namco won’t want to abandon the franchise. A new entry in the series is probably in the works, likely Tekken 8, which was also mentioned during last year’s Nvidia GeForce leak. Keep in mind that a new entry hasn’t been confirmed just yet.

About the game

Tekken 7 was first released back in 2015 for Arcade Machines and later ported to PS4, Xbox One, and PC, where it became a huge success. The game’s story picks up after the events of Tekken 6.

Tekken 7 is a beginner-friendly title, built using Unreal Engine 4, that comes with several new gameplay mechanics, like Rage Arts and Power Crush.

The game was supported by the developer for many years. The title was released with only 20 characters, and now, it features a total of 57 characters. You can purchase the game on Steam for only $39.99., but it won’t give you access to all DLC characters. For that, you will need to spend a lot more. Tekken 7 Definitive Edition has everything for $109.99.
