Tekken 7 has to be one of the most popular and played fighting games currently. And, not just Tekken 7, but the entire series of Tekken games have been very popular. So much so, that the entire Tekken series has had sales of over 50 million units. And, among these, the Tekken 7 alone has over six million units sold. This piece of information comes from the official twitter handle of Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN). Katsuhiro Harada is the game director of Tekken 7. Here is the main tweet:

There are ten games in the Tekken series so far, and the sales for Tekken 7 are undoubtedly one of the highest so far. As a matter of fact, the sales of Tekken 7 are equal to that of Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 combined. However, the record sales are still held by Tekken 3 on the PlayStation. It had 8 million units sold. 

Other than that, we also recently got news of Season 4 for Tekken 7. And, we are going to get a new character named Kunimitsu with this update. She is a former member of the Yoshimitsu clan who wears a cat mask. She hasn't been on the canonical list since Tekken 2, which makes her presence here quite a unique event. Check out the official trailer for Season 4 here:
