This month, Capcom surprised fans with the release of Teppen, a digital card game for mobile devices developed in partnership with GungHo Online (best known for the popular Puzzles & Dragons). Teppen in particular features prominent Capcom franchises, including Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, Mega Man, Darkstalkers, and Street Fighter.

Teppen players can choose a “Hero” as their avatar, such as Albert Wesker or Dante, who are both part of the current eight-character starting roster. Also unlockable are other basic cards featuring Resident Evil’s T-002 Tyrant and Devil May Cry supporting characters Trish, Nelo Angelo, and Vergil.

Unlike other digital card games, Teppen separates itself by having most of the action occurring in real-time as opposed to being turn-based, although it is possible to temporarily switch over to turn-based when utilizing the special “Active Response” system by playing an appropriate card. Players can then switch back and forth taking turns playing action cards until they run out, with the game switching back to real-time after. Unit cards attack other unit cards, but if one is not there to take the hit, a player’s Hero takes damage instead. Once the Hero’s life bar empties, the match is over.

Teppen features three game play modes: Solo, in which players complete story-based missions to unlock new Heroes and cards, PvP, which allows players to put their decks to the test against other players, and Ranked, where players duke it out to be on the top of the leaderboards.

TEPPEN is a real-time combat card game. In this game, you select a Hero, then create a deck of 30 cards comprised of unit and action cards. The object of the game is to battle online opponents around the world using the various abilities of the cards in your deck and achieve victory.

In Solo Play, you can play through the story of your selected Hero, or play practice matches against the CPU.

Teppen is available now for iOS and Android devices and is a free to play game, although like most mobile titles, in-game purchases are a thing. Those who download the game this month will receive 10 free Core Card Packs instantly, with another 20 Core Card Packs given to them throughout the month. If you have any interest in playing this game, now might be a good time to grab it so you can start building decks.

If you’ve ever wanted to know who would win in a fight between Wesker and Mega Man or Chun Li vs. Dante, you’re about to have your answer. Capcom has promised to add more Heroes and other cards as time goes on, so hopefully we will see some more Resident Evil characters like Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine soon. Hell, we’d like to see them go really crazy and add Regina from Dino Crisis. Capcom might as well go all-in on this otherwise wacky digital card game.
