Embark on a perilous rescue mission to save the imprisoned Nero and Felyne!

TOKYO, Japan – July 1, 2024 – Can Felyne break Nero free from the impenetrable Prison Island? The newest card pack, The Desperate Jailbreak, is launching in TEPPEN today. Felyne (of the Monster Hunter series), must devise a plan to rescue the imprisoned Nero (of the Devil May Cry series), and escape Prison Island with the help of a ragtag group of felons!

Alongside the new card pack, TEPPEN also celebrates its 5th Anniversary! In celebration of 5 momentous years, TEPPEN has revealed special presents for returning and new players! Check out the details of The Desperate Jailbreak and the 5th Anniversary event below:

The Escape is Just the Beginning
It seemed like a regular day for Nero and Felyne as they took a calm stroll through the local shopping mall. That was until a crooked cop spiked Nero with a magic-sealing drug. Suddenly, Nero was arrested on trumped-up charges and taken to Prison Island - a place filled with ruthless prison guards and the toughest crooks in the world.

However, Felyne has something up his sleeve. With Felyne's cunning ways, he sneaks into Prison Island and is reunited with his furr-end. Can Nero and Felyne scrounge up a motley crew to escape unharmed?
