Tekken has been a very popular fighting game in India since the time of Tekken 3. However, due to unavailability of game on PC and disinterest shown by the sponsors has led the community to scatter. But, the scenario has been changed since the arrival of Tekken 7 (the first game of the franchise for PC) in the market. As per the data circulated by TekkenFreaks (the largest fighting game community of India) Community after conclusion of Tekken-Crash Online tournament:
“There are more than 300 Tekken7 players on Steam, around 100 players on PSN and around 200 players who prefer to play offline due shortage of internet or some other similar reasons. However, the sales data of Tekken 7 for both the platforms is pretty much higher, which comprises of casual gamers and cafe owners.”
In fact, Tekken 7 was the most popular game in a recent ‘GamerConnect’ event hosted by Nvidea in Pune on 22nd April 2018. Tekken 7 was played on most number of gaming laptops than any other game in the event. With the events like UCypher and Loveneet securing place in Top 5 in TekkenWorldTour2018 Thailand, the popularity of Tekken in India has been boosted. It won’t be a surprise that the Ultimate Fighting Tournament Season 3 might have the maximum number of footfall than any other Tekken tournament held in India till date.
