TOKYO, Japan – January 5, 2022 - The War of the Goddess continues with Episode 2 “Breath of Resistance” launching in TEPPEN beginning today! Witness the start of a rebellion against the Goddess Myria’s salvation, featuring beloved characters from Breath of Fire, Street Fighter, Mega Man, and more. Characters from Red Earth also make their TEPPEN debut.

Meet the Opposition
Resident Evil 2’s Ada Wong is ready to bring to light her true agenda and stop the Goddess Myria’s twisted “salvation.” Working behind the scenes, Ada gathered heroes to form a resistance, led by Street Fighter’s Karin Kanzuki. Three Sages—Breath of Fire’s Deis, Red Earth’s Tessa, and Monster Hunter RidersShakuna—inform the group about the location of the Land of Illusion to thwart Myria’s plot. But to get to their destination, they must repair the long-lost legendary flagship Death Rogumer from Mega Man X and brave the Desert of Death.

New Ability
In every successful resistance, teamwork makes the dream work. This card pack will introduce a new ability called <Coordination>. This effect activates only when the designated amount of friendly units or more are on the field. If the number of friendly units are reduced, the effect is removed. Protect your allies to fully utilize this power!

New Cards
There are plenty of heroes to recruit for this rebel alliance. The Green card ‘Resistance Leader Karin,’ the Purple card ‘Ancient Sorceress Deis,’ and Red card ‘Proud Soldier Colonel’ are ready to join the fight against Myria’s faithful, like Black card ‘Jhen Mohran.’ Here’s a look at ‘Resistance Leader Karin’:
  • Type: Unit
  • Tribe: Human
  • MP: 5
  • Attack: 1
  • HP: 9
  • Effects:
    • <Agility> Doubles attack gauge speed.
    • Attacking: Give all friendly units inflicted with Seal +1/+1.
    • <Coordination>: 1
    • Give +1 Attack for each unit inflicted with Seal.
    • <Ascended>: Seal all other units.
      • This card can be played on top of a friendly unit.
      • The overlapped unit is destroyed, and the unit played gains the <Ascended> status.
      • Cannot be placed on units with <Indestructible>.
Supplemental Cards for “Breath of Resistance” will be added in February. They are exchangeable cards exclusively available in the Point Match Reward Exchange or Soul Shop, and they cannot be obtained from card packs.
