The game has now surpassed the 3 million downloads mark. In addition, players can expect even more action-packed gameplay, such as the “Day of Nightmares” expansion pack, released on September 2.
“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.”
Even famed fighting game champions and professional collectible card game (CCG) players are weighing in on the success of TEPPEN.
"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."
