Tekken 7 sells 4 million copies

It’s a good week for kitty cosplayers and Tekken 7 fans (there’s got to be an overlap in there somewhere).

Yesterday, the live-action trailer for Cats pounced on the internet. But, most importantly, today, the famously feline King helped boost fighting Tekken 7 game to four million lifetime sales. (We might be overstating his importance a little, but King was a shirtless furry before it was socially acceptable.)

Bandai Namco US announced the sales figure on Twitter. The tweet included some bizarrely ornate key art featuring the fighter’s sprawling cast.

Tekken 7 debuted in arcades in 2015, followed by a console release worldwide in June of 2017. Then, in October of 2018, Katsuhiro Harada, the game’s director and longtime series producer, announced that it had surpassed 3 million copies sold.

That tweet, too, included some bizarrely ornate key art.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
