TEPPEN (stylized TEPPƎN officially) is a card battle strategy video game developed by Capcom and GungHo Entertainment for iOS and Android, released in 2019. A major crossover game featuring characters from several Capcom franchises.

A fast-paced 1-on-1 card battle game, in TEPPEN players create a deck of 30 cards and select one of several playable characters, called Heroes. Cards come in two types: Unit Cards which represent a character and can be placed on the field, and Action Cards which are similar to spell cards. Each player starts out with 30 HP, and must place cards in one of 3 slots in the battlefield, after which a strike line starts moving forward. If the opposing player doesn't place a card in its path, they will incur direct damage to their HP. Cards have different effects and abilities that can be activated during battle, providing a large number of unique play styles and strategies, and each Hero has three possible Hero Arts to select, providing their own unique skills to the deck. Battles end once one of the players loses all HP, gives up or the timer runs out.

Story & Characters[]

The game's story is set in its own unique post-apocalyptical world where all Capcom franchises present coexists, and focus on each playable hero's journey to the "Land of Illusion", a mysterious land where they are told what they seek for can be found. Most stories feature a mysterious figure leading them along, later revealed to be Ada Wong from Resident Evil. The plot is presented through art-based prologue stories for each Hero and by reading the "Flavor Text" present in all cards.

There are a total of 16 playable Heroes, the first eight came out with the game and the others were added through "Expansion" updates. Each Hero represents one of four color themes (Red, Green, Purple, Black) and have three selectable "Hero Arts", abilities that can be used during battle. Note that not all franchises in the game have a Hero representing them, sometimes it gets added in a later expansion.

Heroes also have access to Skins. Normal skins are simple recolors with no gameplay or design change, while EX Skins alter the Hero's appearance and voiced lines, and change the Hero Arts' names and animations while keeping their effects the same. EX Skins can also change a Hero into a completely separate character, even one from another franchise, but the Hero Arts still retain the original effects.

Cards[]

All cards in TEPPEN are grouped in one of four colors (red, green, purple, black). Unit Cards have three values: MP (top, indicates summoning cost), Attack (bottom top, indicates damage dealt to other cards or the player's LP) and HP (bottom, indicates how many hits it takes before being destroyed), and are categorized in one of several "tribes" based on their nature (Human, Creature, Monster, Machine, etc.). Action cards, on the other hand, only have an MP value as they are exclusively used to cast effects during battle.

A Dark Agenda[]

The 8th expansion upgrade for TEPPEN released March 1, 2021. It saw the Strider series added to the game as one of its represented franchises. Features a total of 8 Strider cards.
