TEKKEN 7 Sells Over 9 Million Copies Worldwide

  

TEKKEN series producer Katsuhiro Harada announced on Twitter today that TEKKEN 7 has now achieved over 9 million copies sold worldwide since the game's original console launch back on June 2nd, 2017. This new milestone makes TEKKEN 7 the #1 best-selling game of the entire franchise, with a total of 53 million copies sold for the series collectively. For those wondering, the revolutionary and record-breaking TEKKEN 3 topped off at 8 million copies sold on PlayStation 1. To commemorate TEKKEN 7's fifth anniversary tomorrow and new milestone, check out the brand new celebratory illustration by Jbstyle featuring none other than boss-mode Kazuya Mishima.

(It's over 9000?! Try over 9,000,000!) Congratulations to Bandai Namco, Katsuhiro Harada, Michael Murray, and the entire TEKKEN community for this record-breaking achievement! TEKKEN 7's continued success and beyond-dedicated competitive player base will no doubt pave the way for great things to come for the series in the future. With a TEKKEN 8 announcement speculated to be on the horizon... it's still the best time ever to be a TEKKEN player.

Below, take a quick look back at Jbstyle's previous commemorative illustration featuring Heihachi Mishima to mark TEKKEN 7 achieving 8 million units sold (April 2021), followed by Takuji Kawano's final commemorative illustration of the game's cast and latest DLC characters celebrating 7 million copies sold (February 2022).
