Tekken 7 storms past 7m sales

Punching above its weight.

Tekken 7 has sold more than seven million copies, Bandai Namco has announced.

The fighting game launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June 2017, although it was available in arcades before that.

Since then, Tekken 7 has seen a number of DLC characters released as part of seasons. Guest characters include Geese Howard from Fatal Fury, Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy 15, and Negan from The Walking Dead.

Bandai Namco has yet to say whether there will be a season five.

Given the success of Tekken 7, I expect there's a team somewhere deep within the bowels of Bandai Namco beavering away at Tekken 8.
