Looks like Tekken 7 did really well commercially from June to September. It sold over 2 million copies on PS4 and Xbox One.

This was confirmed by game director Katsuhiro Harada on Twitter. The total sales number so far checks in at around 2.3 million when you also add the 300,000 copies sold on Steam, an impressive haul for a 3-month-old game.

This indicates a strong performance financially for the high-profile fighting game. It was also well-received by both critics and fans despite a lacking single-player mode, making it a success on both fronts.

Unless Bandai Namco drops the ball and completely ruins everything in the coming months, Tekken 7 is on track to sail past Tekken 6 in total global sales. Tekken 6 sold over 4 million copies worldwide on PS3, Xbox 360, and PSP.

Tekken 7 is the newest installment in the acclaimed fighting game series that started back in 1994. It was released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC last June 2017. The original arcade version was released in 2015, but only in Japan. In 2016, the arcade version was upgraded to Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, which eventually served as the basis for the console and PC versions.

Featuring both new and familiar faces in the roster, Tekken 7 continues the same brand of gameplay seen in previous Tekken games. The simple controls, in which the four action buttons are assigned to each limb, make it an easy game to pick-up for beginners. However, it takes a lot of practice to truly master the technical gameplay, which favors carefully timed hits over elaborately long combos.

While the core gameplay is intact, developer Bandai Namco included a few tweaks to keep things fresh. This includes Power Crush, a handy mechanic which allows characters to continue their attacks while absorbing damage from high and mid attacks. Compared to previous Tekken games, Tekken 7 opens up more comeback chances for disadvantaged players, which translates to more dramatic match results.
