GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that their "ultimate card battle game" Teppen has hit a major download milestone. If you're unaware, Teppen is a joint project between GungHo and Capcom to create a real-time card battle system using Capcom's stable of characters. And it has been massively successful. A mere two months out from launch and the game has already surpassed the 3 million download milestone.
Additionally, GungHo revealed that players can look forward to even more gameplay with expansion packs like the recent "Day of Nightmares" expansion that released on September 2, 2019.
"When Teppen surpassed 2 million downloads, we were thrilled so many players were enjoying the game. But now, in just a week's time, to surpass 3 million downloads, we are elated so many fans are enthralled with the experience," said GungHo President & CEO, Kazuki Morishita. "With the release of the 'Day of Nightmares' expansion pack and even more exciting offerings planned, we hope the game continues to grow and pique player curiosity and interest."
GungHo and Capcom even reached out to professional players for their reactions to the news:
"Teppen hit 3 million downloads?!?!" said Justin Wong, nine-time EVO champion. "I mean what do you expect? It's the best multiplayer game out in the market right now when it comes to reaction, strategy and speed."
Miguel "MegaM0gwai" Guerrero Leon, professional CCG player added, "Honestly, not surprised Teppen has reached 3 million downloads. I've been playing card games all my life and Teppen delivers something completely new, and does so brilliantly."
Guerrero Leon was awarded a $10,000 prize for being the winner of the first Teppen invitational championship, which was held last weekend at PAX West 2019 in Seattle, Washington.
