A New Hero Arrives!
Along with crowning a World Champion, GOE also announced the next Hero coming to TEPPEN. The Demon Queen, Oichi from the Sengoku BASARA series, is a Black element Hero who will join TEPPENin the latest expansion -’The Battle of Amatsu no Kuni’.

After losing everything dear to her and trying to forget her past, Oichi wanders as an amnesiac through Amatsu no Kuni. With the lingering memory of her lost love and the false priestess at her side, she forges into battle with three mythical Hero Arts:

  • Dancing Dead deals damage to an enemy unit equal to the number of Unit Cards in your Graveyard. If an opponent’s unit dies from this damage, your Hero gains +3 Life.
  • Despair, Wail, and Perish! takes 3 units from your Graveyard with an MP cost of 4 or less and places them onto the field. All friendly units also receive +1/+1.
  • Dark Invitation activates the Death abilities of a friendly unit.

Updates planned for 2021

  • New Friend Invite and deck gifting features
  • More single player content
  • Rule changes to matches
    • Standard: Certain cards cannot be used in Ranked Matches
    • Unlimited: All cards can be used
  • Characters brand new to TEPPEN!
