Teppen is a free-to-play card game for mobile devices published by GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc. and developed by GungHo and Capcom in conjuction.[1] The game features cards with characters from multiple Capcom franchises, including Devil May Cry.

DevelopmentEdit

Teppen was being developed since at least 2017. Capcom Executive Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto was a fan of Puzzles & Dragons, a game developed by GungHo, and so he wanted to get in touch with the company. He met GungHo CEO Kazuki Morishita and while at first their meetings weren't about making a new game, eventually the idea came to mind and Morishita stated that he'd like to have multiple Capcom IPs in the game. As GungHo had a high amount of experience in the mobile market, it was the perfect choice for Capcom as they wanted to make Teppen a mobile game.[5]

The game released on the 4th of July, 2019, but only in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain with information on additional releases to be revealed at a later date.[6] On August 5, 2019, Teppen was released in Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Thailand[2][7] alongside Jill Valentine being added as a new Hero during the August 8th Japan Premiere Event. During this event, a new card pack titled "Day of Nightmares" was also announced which released on September 2nd which coincided with PAX 2019, where Teppen had its own booth (#825).[8][9][10]

Teppen at TGS 2019 - Nero announcement

Nero was announced as the next Hero to be added in the game at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show.

Teppen also had its own booth at TGS 2019, there, a new announcement was made and it was revealed that the next Hero in the game was going to be Nero, who was going to release alongside another card pack in November of the same year.[11][12] However, the release date ended up being changed to October 2019 instead.[13] A World Championship was also announced during the show.[14]

OverviewEdit

Teppen is comprised of two main modes: Solo Play, where players can experience a Hero's story or play practice matches against the CPU, and online Ranked Matches where players battle against one another. A Grand Prix mode is also available, but it is playable only for a limited time, where elimination battles are available.[3][15][16]

In the game, a "Hero" must be selected (two of them being Dante and Nero), and a deck of 30 cards can then be created which can include "unit" and "action" cards, only one Hero can be selected at a time, and each Hero has different Hero Arts (special abilities) that can be set onto the deck. All Heroes have a total of three abilities, one is always unlocked by default, while the other two must be unlocked by leveling up that Hero.[17][16]

The game is free for download but there are in-app purchases, however, the premium currency in question (Jewel) can be aquired in-game through tutorials, in-game rewards, events, etc.[16]

Manually changing the time settings on the mobile device may result in the game data becoming corrupted, if this happens, all in-game purchases will be lost, alongside any game progress.[16]

StoryEdit

DanteEdit

Dante fights the following opponents during his story: Morrigan, X and Chun-Li.

Teppen-Dante's Story-2

Dante encounters Morrigan.

As Dante is on his usual demon-hunting gig, he encounters Morrigan and decides to fight against the demon. Dante activates his Devil Trigger, but he noticed a child got caught in the cross-fire. Dante takes his focus off of Morrigan in order to save the little girl from a crumbling wall. Afterwards, Dante searches for Morrigan, but it was too late as she had taken the form of a human.

As he had realized it and was about to strike Morrigan, X gets in the way in order to protect Morrigan which starts their fight. After the battle ended, Dante resumed his search for Morrigan. However, a shady-looking woman appears and speaks to Dante, as she has done so, Dante gave an uncharacteristic grimace.

Teppen-Dante's Story-5

Dante blocks Chun-Li's path.

The two of them could see Chun-Li running off in the distance, and Dante ends up blocking her way which leads to their battle. In the end, the words the woman had spoken were "Mundus", it is stated that Mundus is the reason why Dante fights, and when the strange lady invites him to go to the Land of Illusion, he immediately accepts, stating "If there's a party going down in the Land of Illusion. I'll be damned if I'm not the guest of honor."

In the story mode of the characters Dante fights, it is revealed that:

Morrigan
  • Morrigan wanted to avoid the political duties that were inherited to her from her adoptive father, and so she went in search of something "stimulating", which made her want to battle Dante.
  • Morrigan wondered why Dante stopped attacking her after activating his Devil Trigger, instead, he flew towards an avalanche of debris, when he emerged, he had a child in his arms. She was intrigued over Dante using the strength of hell to save a human child.
X
Teppen-X's Story-4

X points his X-Buster at Dante.

  • X had just woken up from a sleep that took eons, but his principle remained: protect humans. X moved from the ruins he had woken up to a more populated area, he analyzed his surrounding location and found a town that was being attacked by a demon.
  • X scanned the target and the results showed that it was both human and demon, which shocked him. Robots must protect and never harm humans, what should he do...? He raised his X-Buster, his mind filled with doubt.
  • X managed to bring the fight to a remote forest, which saved the town from any further damage.
Chun-Li
  • The reason why Chun-Li was seen running by Dante was because she was chasing off a possessed Ryu.
  • Dante deliberately fell down a tree in order to block Chun-Li's path.

At the end of all stories in the game, the mysterious woman always appears and mentions the "Land of Illusion" location to whichever character was being played.

NeroEdit

Nero is set to release sometime in November 2019.[12]

The Devils Awaken PackEdit

A new card pack titled "The Devils Awaken" was originally set to release sometime in November 2019 alongside Nero as a Hero.[12] However, the release date ended up changing to October 2019.[13]

ReceptionEdit

During the month the game released, it reached the #3 spot in the card game category in the App Store. It had a 4.6/5 star rating out of 1.3K votes.[3] At Google Play, the game had been installed 100.000+ times by the 10th of July, just six days after it was released, the game had a 4.1/5 star rating out of 4K votes.[15]

TriviaEdit

  • When Dante uses Quicksilver, he says "Stand still!", which is the same line he says when using the Quicksilver Style in Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening.
  • While Dante's design is based on his Devil May Cry 4 look, Lady and Vergil both have their designs based on their Devil May Cry 3 iterations.
    • The only exceptions to this is the Beauty's Betrayal card and the cutscene during Dante's story that shows him fighting Mundus, where Dante seems to be based on his Devil May Cry iteration.
  • In the Jackpot! card, the Devil May Cry logo inside the shop is purple, when it has always been red throughout all games.
  • This game marks the second time the Devil May Cry series had some type of crossover with the Mega Man series, the first being the Mega Buster in Devil May Cry 5.
