What are Heroes?
Teppen allows you to pick a hero from the Capcom universe to use as the representative of your deck. The hero you choose has an ability known as a “Hero Art” which is a powerful ability you can use throughout the game that can turn the tide of the battle in your favor.
Heroes have a total of 3 hero arts that you can pick from once you have leveled the hero up appropriately, and each hero art affects the battlefield in its own way.
How do you unlock heroes in Teppen?
Heroes in Teppen are unlocked by completing a short “story” mode for each character. The story mode consists of 3 card battles against straightforward opponents. Once you have completed the story mode for that character, you will unlock the hero and their basic deck.
