Just in time for the end of Namco Bandai's second quarter, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 launched with an impressive 840,000 SKUs moved within the two week period of September. Realistically, the game has moved a lot more than that but we won't know for sure until Namco Bandai's third quarter results.
According to Siliconera, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 moved close to a million SKUs between September 11th and September 30th. The game had to face off against some stiff competition from Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive 5, which also launched on the same day and date as Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Those numbers aren't too bad considering that Street Fighter X Tekken launched in March without much of any direct competition from other fighting games and managed to move 1.4 million units over the course of a few months. Will Namco be able to beat that? With the game's continued presence on the Xbox 360 and PS3, I don't doubt it, and it's likely to move a few hundred thousand units once Tekken Tag Tournament 2 launches with the Wii U later this month.
What's more is that Namco Bandai also cleaned up on their mobile releases as well as Soul Calibur V and Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, both of which have surpassed the one million mark in total units shipped. Very impressive.
