The king of fighters?
Bandai Namco reluctantly releases figures detailing how their games are doing on the market but once in a while someone slips their tongue.
This time it is Katsuhiro Harada, series producer for Tekken, responding to a twitter question about how the 7th iteration of the game is doing.
Over 2 million now (2017 June to September).
RT@NightmareSteam How many copies has Tekken 7 sold on consoles so far?

Over 2 million copies sold is an achievement more in context than on its own terms. Not only does it exceed Street Fighter 5’s sales, but also is a step up from Tekken 6, which never reached similar heights.
Tekken 7 is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
