Cute Q-Bee, the Sasquatch family and lots of Morrigan: Teppen's Darkstalkers art shows off why the series characters need to make a big return

We really need these characters back in a fighting game

Darkstalkers is one of Capcom's most unique fighting game franchises having seen a number of sequels, yet it's been dormant for many years now after Resurrection failed to bring the series back into the spotlight in the eyes of its creators.

Teppen has been out for two weeks now combining the likes of dozens of different Capcom characters together for a card game with their own unique artwork, and the Darkstalkers characters stand out as some of the best looking fighters around.

We've gathered over a dozen of the individual pieces of Darkstalkers art featured in Teppen in the gallery below where it feels like almost every major character gets highlighted in one form or another.

Obviously, as Morrigan is the playable deck master and most iconic fighter from the franchise, she is the one most prominently featured among the cards even crossing over with her succubus sister Lilith.

Felicia, Sasquatch, Rikuo, Q-Bee, Hsien-Ko, Jedah, Jon Talbain, Lord Raptor, Anakaris, BB Hood and even Dee are shown off in these expanded pieces — some for the first time since Darkstalkers Resurrection — and they all look great.

We've also covered much of the Street Fighter specific art featured in Teppen, but Darkstalkers may actually have them beat in terms of variety and appearance. How can you beat the monsters? We also have early impressions about the mobile game where we feel it's worth checking out if you are a fan of pretty much anything Capcom has done the past like 25 years between Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, etc.
