First released for the Nintendo 64 in 1998, Tekken 3 has sold over 6 million copies in Japan alone, making it the country's best-selling video game of all-time on that particular platform, as well as the fifth highest-selling videgame of all time in Japan. As one of the most successful fighting games of all-time, its gameplay has been ported to the Sony PlayStation 2 in 2001, both in arcades and in home releases. The game sold over 4 million copies in North America alone, and has since been rereleased on a few different media, most recently a DS remake of the arcade version. On the arcade version, it is Katsuhiro Harada's first fighting game, as he worked on the game together with producer Tomonobu Itagaki and other developers. All released Tekken video games since then have been developed by Namco Bandai with Harada as director.
