During the Teppen Asia Japan Premiere Event, Capcom revealed a lot about the future of the game, including a new character, future expansions, and a detailed look at what competitive tournaments will be coming for the card game.
The Teppen World Championship will take place in Tokyo this December, with official dates to be announced at a later event.
Following the reveal of the qualifiers, Capcom announced that the Teppen World Championship will be sponsored by Amazon. The global online powerhouse is the first Platinum sponsor, but the company said that many other sponsors will likely be added to the event as it draws closer.
The prize pool for the Teppen World Championship will be ¥50,000,000 or roughly $470,000 in today’s exchange rates. As more sponsors start rolling in, that prize pool has a good chance of increasing to over $500,000.
