Tekken 7 Sold 7 Million Copies, New Character Available

Tekken 7's latest fighter, Polish PM Lidia Sobieska, is already available as paid DLC. Meanwhile, the game's director, Katsuhiro Harada, boasted that the title was bought by 7 million players.

Recently, things have become quite noisy around Tekken 7. This is mainly due to the appearance a new character - Polish Prime Minister Lidia Sobieska. We can use her in duels from today, if we are willing to purchase a DLC for $5.99.

As it turns out, the latest Tekken is doing quite well even without Lidia, which is best confirmed by a tweet from Katsuhiro Harada, one of the main devs of the series. He admitted on a public forum that the seventh installment of the fighting game has already gathered a group of 7 million players.

This is a really good result, considering the fact that in September 2020, just a few months ago, Harada boasted about 6 million users. This means the game needed really little time to change the number leading those impressive six zeros.

When you further consider that Tekken 7 has been on sale since June 2017, so it will soon turn 4 years old, the devs can certainly be pleased with the ever-growing number of players. And DLCs like the one with Lidia Sobieska will undoubtedly provide even more potential buyers of the game.

His adventure with journalism began with a personal blog, the name of which is no longer worth quoting. Then he interpreted Iranian dramas and the Joker, writing for cinematography journal, which, sadly, no longer exists. His writing credentials include a degree in film studies, but his thesis was strictly devoted to video games. He has been writing for Gamepressure since March 2020, first writing a lot about movies, then in the newsroom, and eventually, he became a specialist in everything. He currently edits and writes articles and features. A long-time enthusiast of the most bizarre indie games and arthouse cinema. He idolizes surrealism and postmodernism. He appreciates the power of absurdity. Which is probably why he also tried soccer refereeing for 2 years (with so-so results). He tends to over-philosophize, so watch out.
