Capcom card game Teppen features Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, and more

Capcom rolled out Teppen, a digital card game for iOS and Android that features characters from franchises such as Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, Mega Man, Devil May Cry, Darkstalkers, and Resident Evil.

Teppen, which Capcom created in partnership with GungHo, features fast-paced, five-minute card battles. One of the major draws of the game is that players will get to see fights such as Street Fighter‘s Ryu vs. Resident Evil‘s Leon Kennedy, and Monster Hunter‘s Rathalos vs. Darkstalkers‘ Morrigan. The other characters from the starting roster of eight are Street Fighter‘s Chun-Li, Monster Hunter‘s Nergigante, Mega Man‘s X, and Resident Evil‘s Albert Wesker.

What sets Teppen apart from most digital card games is that the action happens in real-time, which may change into a turn-based sequence through the Active Response system.

Teppen matches start off with no turns, as cards may be played at any time as long as players accumulate the necessary MP. Unit cards start attacking automatically, dealing damage to the opposing unit cards. If there is no enemy unit in its path, then it will deal damage to the enemy hero. Players also have access to Hero Arts, which are special abilities that are unique to each character.

Players may trigger the Action Response system by playing an Action Card, which pauses the real-time battle and allows opponents to respond with an Action Card of their own. The back-and-forth of Action Cards continues until both players are done, triggering the effects and bringing back the real-time action.

Teppen features three game modes, starting with Solo that allows players to unlock Heroes by completing stories. Players may then try out their decks against other players through PvP mode, and then aim for the top in Rank mode.

Capcom’s digital card game is free to play, but similar to competitors such as Blizzard’s Hearthstone, there are different kinds of in-app purchases that will give players an edge over their opponents. For example, as part of Teppen‘s release celebration, players who buy 30 packs will max out their Legendary Charge gauge, guaranteeing at least one legendary card.

The release celebration of Teppen will also provide players with an instant 10 Core Card Packs and 20 more over the month of July, for a total of 30 Core Card Packs to help them start building their decks.

Capcom will add more Heroes and cards to Teppen over time, which should given fans of its franchises more things to look forward to in the game.

How to change profile Titles in Street Fighter 6

Diving into the world of Street Fighter 6 opens up a whole new arena of customization. Instead of just playing as the iconic world warriors and other designed fighters, you are finally able to create your own custom avatar to face off against these legendary brawlers. The character creator is extensive enough already, but that's only part of the suite of ways you can customize your experience. Titles are back and give you a way to add some flair and personality to your profile when playing against opponents online. Unfortunately, the way to actually change your Title is a bit obscure. Here's how you can change your profile Title in Street Fighter 6.
How to change your Title

After  you've gotten started in the game, head into the Main Menu and go to the Profile section. This is where people will get tripped up. You need to press Square to enter the Battle Settings, then press Triangle to access Update Character Settings, then select Title Settings from the available tabs. This is finally where you are able to go in and pick from any of the Titles you've unlocked so far. The Title will be applied to whichever character you have selected, so you can have different titles set for each character.

Street Fighter 6’s World Tour mode is the best fighting game tutorial ever
A regular fight in Street Fighter 6 World Tour.

As hard as I’ve tried, I’ve never quite been able to wrap my head around traditional 2D fighting games. I’ve clicked with the fast pace of Super Smash Bros., but I’ve just never been able to hold my own online in a King of Fighters XV match. For me, it’s always been an education and onboarding issue. Most fighting games I’ve tried teach me their wealth of nuances in a lightning-fast tutorial that shows me how to do dozens of things in the span of a few minutes. With that whirlwind pace and a lack of practical context, I always find it difficult to actually retain all of that information.

Street Fighter 6 is perhaps the first 2D fighting game that fully solves my problem and that’s because of its standout World Tour mode. At first glance, World Tour seems like a meaty piece of single-player content for players to pick at between matches. But for more casual brawlers like me, it serves a much more important purpose: It’s the most thorough, effective fighting game tutorial ever crafted.
Learning to fight
As a piece of single-player content, World Tour is an ambitious mode. It’s a full-on action RPG that plays like a classic Yakuza game. Players explore Metro City, and a few other locations, in 3D and stop to brawl in 2D battles. It’s a lengthy campaign that takes over 15 hours to complete and is filled with RPG hooks, from stats to skill trees. It’s an impressive piece of content that helps make Street Fighter 6 feel like a fully fleshed-out release on day one.

Street Fighter 6 is the single-player fighting experience I’ve always wanted
A player stands in Metro City's Times Square equivalent in Street Fighter 6 World Tour.

As someone who doesn’t often game competitively, I’m always on the hunt for fighting games with great single-player content. Whether it’s a meaty story mode a la Soulcalibur VI or addictive arcade content like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I’m always happy when I can master a character’s move set in a low-stakes setting. That’s why I could never really get into Street Fighter 5, a game that was almost solely focused on multiplayer at launch. Later modes would rectify that, but it was largely built for the competitive scene -- and I sure as heck wasn’t skilled enough to learn the game via trial by fire.

So I’m much more excited by the prospect of Street Fighter 6. Seemingly learning from its predecessor’s missteps, developer Capcom has put a lot more into the upcoming sequel’s single-player content. In addition to its classic arcade mode, World Tour is a full-on RPG that lets players beat the snot out of random people around Metro City. Players recently got a small taste of the mode via a new demo, but the full scope of it wasn’t entirely clear.
