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.

Link holding the master sword in the clouds.

If 2023 were to end today, it would still be remembered as a historic year for video games. That’s how good it’s been.

After a few mixed years filled with COVID-induced delays, the first half of 2023 has given players a non-stop avalanche of hits, keeping their backlogs eternally filled. We’ve gotten major entries in beloved franchises like Zelda and Final Fantasy, seen some bar-raising remakes for some of gaming’s best horror games, and been treated to some truly original projects from both indie developers and larger studios given a freedom we rarely see nowadays. And it’s only been six months.

The best video games of June 2023: Street Fighter 6, Diablo IV and more
Ryu performs a special move in Street Fighter 6.

June 2023 was a month of old gaming classics successfully resurfacing. Thanks to the flurry of gaming showcases, we got promising looks at new games in stories franchises like Super Mario Bros., Fable, Prince of Persia, Forza Motorsport, and Sonic the Hedgehog. More importantly, this was reflected in some of the month's biggest launches. Franchises like Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, and Diablo, which don't receive new mainline games that often, all got new entries that lived up to expectations.
Even the cult classic Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective got a remaster. This was actually one of the strongest months for AAA games in a while, although there were definitely still some creative indies in the mix, creating a month that was quite exciting from all corners of the gaming industry. In particular, the following games stood out as the best games of the month.
Street Fighter 6

Capcom released a brand new Street Fighter at the start of the month, and it fixed almost every issue that plagued its predecessor. The core fighting gameplay felt as amazing to play as ever, bolstered by a flashy new Drive Gauge system. Those who enjoy the series for its hardcore, competitive elements will like that, as well as its multiplayer Battle Hub mode. That said, Street Fighter 6 is also the friendliest fighting game ever for newcomers to the genre. New modern controls, as well as a meaty RPG World Tour mode that teaches the ins and outs of many of the game's characters and mechanics, means there's a ton of enjoyment to be had no matter one's skill level. 
“From its control options to World Tour’s RPG setup, Street Fighter 6 ensures that it can be a fighting game for pretty much any type of player,” I wrote in a four-and-a-half star review of Street Fighter 6. “You’re likely to find your physical, cultural, or gaming background represented within this game somewhere and have all of the tools at your disposal to go from flashy amateur play to seasoned pro, all in one of the best-looking games of this console generation. Street Fighter 6 is the ultimate fighting game and should be the new gold standard for the genre.”
Street Fighter 2 kicked off the original fighting game boom, and Street Fighter 4 brought the fighting game genre back from irrelevancy. There seems to be some magic surrounding even numbered Street Fighter titles, as Street Fighter 6 feels like the most accessible fighting game yet, and one that everyone will be comparing new games in the genre to for years to come. It's available now for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.

A beastren in Dragon's Dogma 2.

Hot on the heels of showcases hosted by Geoff Keighley, Microsoft, and Ubisoft, Japanese game developer and publisher Capcom held a showcase of its own. This June 2023 Capcom Showcase comes after the successful releases of the Resident Evil 4 remake and Street Fighter 6, and gave Capcom a chance to show us what is has coming next. Titles like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and Exoprimal were shown off, but Capcom also confirmed a couple of new games coming in the future, including Mega Man X DiVE Offline and the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection.
We even got a new look at Pragmata, a game that has been mostly MIA since its 2020 reveal, although our first look at gameplay also came with a delay announcement. To get a full sense of what Capcom revealed at the show, check out this full recap of every announcement made during the June 2023 Capcom Showcase.
Capcom Showcase | 6.12.2023
Mega Man X DiVE Offline was announced
"MEGA MAN X DiVE Offline" Announcement Trailer
A new Mega Man game was announced at the showcase, but it's probably not what you'd expect. It's an offline version of Mega Man X Dive, a mobile game where players can collect and play as lots of Mega Man X series characters across 2D action platformer stages. As the title spells out, this game is also now playable offline. Mega Man X DiVE Offline will be released for iOS, Android, and PC later in 2023.
Pragmata isn't coming out in 2023
PRAGMATA - June 2023 Trailer
Three years after its reveal at the June 2020 PlayStation Showcase, Pragmata reappeared during this Capcom Showcase with a new trailer. It starts with a soldier fighting in a room where a young girl is drawing. It then shows a little bit of gameplay of Pragmata; we see a man in a large spacesuit fight mechs and other robotic enemies before the young girl, who is named Diana, starts to use some technology-based power. Sadly, we also learned that Pragmata will no longer release in 2023, so Capcom can have more time to polish the final product.
