Teppen's great Street Fighter and Darkstalkers artwork can even make characters like F.A.N.G look menacing as hell

I wouldn't mess with that dude

Teppen appears to have quickly been accepted by the embrace of the fighting game community despite not actually being part of their genre, and a lot of that comes down to the love and respect the mobile title shows Capcom's classic and older franchises like Darkstalkers and Mega Man X.

The Force Seekers expansion for Teppen this year added in dozens of new cards to collect, each with their own distinct artwork depicting a bunch of characters we haven't really seen in a number of years like Hakan.

One of the standouts to me from the latest set of cards and in the game in general is the representation of less-often remembered fighters from Darkstalkers like Rikuo and Victor von Gerdenheim, who haven't really ever even seen inclusion in series like Marvel vs. Capcom.

There's also some nice usage of those older Street Fighter characters as well with the doll Juli getting some striking looks here along with Guy and the aforementioned oiled up Turkish wrestler.

Even though I'm not much of a fan of his in SF5, F.A.N.G's appearance in Teppen actually makes me like the character more for bringing out his darker side as opposed to his more goofy nature by playing up his messed up poisoned purple hands with nails that certainly look painful as hell.

It's also cool to see nice artwork done for Vega's wall dive attack seen from the position of someone on the ground looking up, and I'll never say no to more Juri art — all of which you can check out in the gallery below.
