The latest installment in the Tekken franchise has done quite well for Bandai Namco. Tekken 7 remains a popular fighting title on the market today despite its initial arcade release being clear back in 2015.

Today we have a new update on just how well Tekken 7 has been doing. Tekken Director Katsuhiro Harada put out the official word that the game has surpassed 7 million in sales, and to celebrate, Bandai Namco has updated their commemorative illustration with the newest DLC character additions, as well as a sneaky cameo that keen eyed observers should easily catch.

"TEKKEN 7 had achieved Over 7 million sales !" Harada wrote on Twitter. "Season 4 characters are added to the commemorative illustration."

Last we heard of Tekken 7's sales, a Twitter user took the time to show their support for the title and the work the company has been doing with it. After saying they are aware that they are only one of of the 6 million players the game had at the time, Harada stepped in for a quick reply.

"Now, one of 7 million ;)" said Harada back in late March, alluding to the game's sales and a new milestone. Today, however, the company has officially let the fans know that the game is now over the 7 million sold marker.

The updated illustration introduces both Kunimitsu and Lidia Sobieska into the large spread depicting an elegant celebration — one that is well earned. And funnily enough, if you look deep into the background, behind Fahkumram, you might see a familiar face that is known by Tekken fans the whole world over.

Tekken 7 season 4 wrapped up with the introduction and release of Lidia, and at this point in time there has been no talk of a season 5. However, as the game continues to sell well, it is entirely possible that support continues beyond what we've seen already.
