Capcom has an all-new playing card game, currently known as Project Battle, on the horizon and has sent a demo of it to Maximilian to help get the word out.

In a video featuring about 10 minutes of in-game footage, Max plays through a few matches, peruses a few menus, and scans through the character select screen. A few notable faces we see include Ryu, Morrigan, Albert Wesker, Zero, Chris Redfield, Mega-Man, Chun-Li, Dante, and Rathalos.

As soon as the footage starts up, it's apparent that this is a fairly big venture for Capcom. The quality and attention to detail on this work-in-progress is jaw-dropping, and the art is downright stunning.

One game in this turn-based card fighter is supposed to take about "as long as an average Capcom arcade experience," according to Max's sources, and features gameplay not entirely unlike current recognizable genre titles such as Hearthstone.

Players have three active spaces in which to place cards from their deck and aim to reduce their opponent's vitality from 30 to 0 by using attacks from characters hailing from Capcom IPs such as Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, Darkstalkers, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, and Monster Hunter.

While players do indeed take turns, there is also an "Active Response" mechanic that calls for quick and even timed actions in order to get the most out of each move.

We currently have no other information, including release date, on Project Battle. Below you'll find a gallery of stills from a variety of the game's screens. Below that is Max's video embed where you can watch him playing it in realtime:
