Robot duplicates of TEPPEN heroes attack as the latest trilogy draws to a close
TOKYO, Japan – January 5, 2023 – The Reploid Army may have been defeated, but their menacing leader poses a new threat as the “Sigma’s Invasion” expansion launches in TEPPEN today. The final chapter of the “Echoes of the Lost Civilization” trilogy brings new characters from the arcade rhythm series crossbeats REV. SUNRISE and super-powered, robotic clones of beloved heroes from the Monster Hunter series, Street Fighter series, Mega Man X series, and more.
You can watch the full trailer for “Sigma’s Invasion” here.
Heroes Are Seeing Double
After the Anti-Machine Special Forces (ASMF) destroys the last fighters of the Reploid Army, the true invasion begins. The mastermind Sigma from the Mega Man X series moves to the final stages of his plan to exterminate all of mankind. Using Akatsuki from crossbeats REV. SUNRISE, the highest CPU that controls the Reploid Army, Sigma creates dangerous replicants based on battle data from ASMF heroes. These Mirage Soldiers attack civilians and heroes alike, forcing the ASMF to infiltrate Sigma’s Mirage Colosseum Fortress. Will they be able to defeat the Reploid Mastermind, or will mankind fall to the super-civilization?
It’s hard to tell who is friend or foe, so build your deck with care! The Black card “Masterwork MS Zangief,” the Purple card “Mother Computer Akatsuki,” the Red Card “Sonic Vanguard Guile,” and the Green Card “Rainbow Bomber R. Mika” have joined the battle, but can you spot the Mirage Soldiers among the real heroes? Here’s a look at Mother Computer Akatsuki:
- Type: Unit
- Tribe: Machine
- Rarity: Legendary
- MP: 6
- Attack: 2
- HP: 5
- This unit cannot attack. When played, seize control of 1 random enemy unit and give it “Mark of Akatsuki”.
- When leaving the field, all friendly units with Mark of Akatsuki lose Mark of Akatsuki and the opponent seizes control of them.
