The Tekken Series Hits Huge Sales Milestone

A lot of people are ready for the next battle as the Tekken series has sold over 50 million copies since it began in 1995. Most of you reading this probably weren’t born before then.

This news comes from the series director Katsuhiro Harada who celebrated with a tweet. He also shared that Tekken 7 has sold more than six million copies worldwide.

The picture shows the cast of Tekken characters on a Zoom-like program in hilarious fashion. It’s likely a representation of what the development team’s everyday life is like right now.

Tekken 7 will likely continue to sell as more DLC is on the way. Kunimitsu, the ninja who last appeared in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, will be the first character of Season Pass 4 alongside a new stage called Vermillion Gates. No release date has been given for her yet, but she looks like an exciting addition to the roster. The game will have a major rework from the ground-up with hopefully improved online play and completely new moves for every character in the game.

Bandai Namco is also letting players know if the opponent has wi-fi or not, which is honestly going to suck for those who want to get in a match and don’t have an ethernet cable set up. It’s good for die-hards, but not so much for casual players who just want to have fun.

Bandai Namco as of recent has been known for including third-party characters into its fighting games. Noctis from Final Fantasy XV and Negan from The Walking Dead have both joined the fight with 2B and Haohmaru crossing blades in Soul Calibur VI. Fans have speculated that the fan-favorite Kazuma Kiryu from the Yakuza series is the next one to show up in Tekken 7. He would certainly fit in if that is the case, and we’d totally be on board if the stage is set in the Kamurocho district.

For those who want to get in on the action, Tekken 7 is currently on sale at 75% off with Humble Bundle, and it’s the Steam version. The game’s DLC is also steeply discounted between 50-75% off.
