Tekken 8 - Reina

Despite the controversy surrounding Tekken 8’s recent addition of the cash shop and Battle Pass, Bandai Namco’s sequel has done well. Before its launch, producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed that the series had sold over 55 million copies on the Game Maker’s Notebook Podcast.

Harada conversed with Shuhei Yoshida, the head of the independent developer initiative at Sony Interactive Entertainment, in an episode filmed before Tekken 8’s release. The latest mainline title sold two million copies within its first three weeks, which brings the total series sales to over 57 million. However, Bandai Namco hasn’t officially announced the milestone.

Some other interesting bits revealed during the podcast include Europe encompassing 51 percent of total sales for the series, followed by the United States at about 30 percent. He also reaffirmed that Tekken 7 had sold 11 million copies (the official figure is over 11.8 million sold as of February 2024).

Tekken 8 is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Check out our review here.
