GungHo Online Entertainment announced today that it will hold the first-ever TEPPEN World Championship for the mobile card-battling game in Tokyo this December.
The TEPPEN World Championship will be sponsored by Amazon, and will hold its finals at a yet-unannounced venue on Dec. 21. The live finals will follow a series of online regional qualifiers, and have a $466K USD (50M yen) prize pool.
TEPPEN—which has no relation to Bandai Namco’s Tekken fighting series—sees players create decks of character cards and battle against each other. The game was created in collaboration with Capcom and features characters from a number of popular Capcom properties, including Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and Monster Hunter.
The iOS and Android game released this past July and has amassed more than 3M downloads to date, according to GungHo.
