Bandai Namco Europe announces today that TEKKEN 8, the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed TEKKEN series released on January 26, 2024, surpassed a total of 1 million units worldwide on its first day of release and 2 million units in the first month. Support for TEKKEN 8 will continue through various content updates, esports events, music and licensing announcements.

The next step in TEKKEN esports, the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR 2024, will start on April 13, 2024. After successful TEKKEN WORLD TOUR events that have accompanied the lifecycle of TEKKEN 7, now players will compete with TEKKEN 8 through TEKKEN WORLD TOUR 2024 events across the world to earn points and progress through the rankings, with the hope of reaching the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR Finals and have a chance to become the best TEKKEN 8 player worldwide.

As part of regular updates, the Tekken Shop will make its way into the game. This in-game shop will provide customization items such as costumes from previous instalments, character skins for avatars, and licensed items from our collaborations, letting players put their own touch on their favourite TEKKEN characters.

The sales of over 2 million copies in the first month of release greatly outpaces its predecessor, “TEKKEN 7,” which is still being played and has the series’ total highest sales record of over 11.8 million copies worldwide.
