TOKYO, Japan – April 28, 2022 – A fight begins in Amatsu no Kuni as “Genma Onslaught” launches in TEPPEN today. Join the battle against a demon horde with characters from Onimusha and Monster Hunter Rise, who join beloved characters from Breath of Fire, Street Fighter, the Mega Man series, and more.


A Fragile Peace is Shattered The battle against the Goddess Myria is over, but the peace settling over Amatsu no Kuni does not last long. A horde of Genma, wicked demons that hunt the innocent, attack on the night of the full moon. Without Goddess Myria to watch over Inabayama Castle, the Gates of Hell opens. The freed Genma King, Fortinbras, enslaves the ninja village of Kamura, and turns it into a factory to transform the ninjas into Genma soldiers.


Avenging Heroes Ride On During the siege of Kamura, one hero escapes! Palamute from Monster Hunter Rise teams up with Akechi Samanosuke from Onimusha to save the kidnapped Princess Yuki and free Amatsu no Kuni from the Genma.


A Paranormal Ability Coming to TEPPEN as part of “Genma Onslaught,” <Immolate> allows players to commune with Spirits. Place a card with low health on <Immolate> cards to trigger instant effects.


New Cards


The evil Genma have turned people into weapons. Oichi has been corrupted and turned into Black card ‘Machine Armor Oichi.’ Demons may pour in from the deepest pits of hell, but heroes are rising up to meet them. The Red card ‘Onimusha Samanosuke’ and the Green card ‘Village Buddy Palamute’ lend their strengths to monsters like Purple card ‘Almudron.’ Here’s a look at Machine Armor Oichi:

  • Rarity: Legendary
  • MP: 6
  • Attack: 3

    • Attack: Give -2 on one random enemy unit. 
    • Death: 0
    • <Immolate>: Give <Veil> and “Damage taken becomes 1.”
