Tekken 7 has become one of the fighting game community’s biggest mainstays since its release last year, and it looks like that momentum, along with continual updates, guest characters, and a second season have translated into good sales numbers.
Series producer Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to announce some recent sales numbers. The highlight is that Tekken 7 has, over a year after launch, sold over three million copies, and impressive milestone for a fighting game. Harada also took the moment to mention that the series’ overall sales numbers have reached 47 million.
TEKKEN7 had achieved Over 3million sales before one year passed from release, but there was no timing to upload this (That’s why there is no Anna, Lei..).
We recorded over 47million copies sales for the series.

This bodes well for the future of Tekken 7 and continuing updates, which should make a solid fighting game even better with time. Hopefully Bandai Namco’s other recent original fighting game, Soulcalibur VI, can reach the same success.
