Teppen: Mega Man X Cards From "The Core Card Pack" (Part 1)


We continue our coverage of Teppen's Mega Man X specific cards with the cards that are only available from the Core Card Pack. This is the first supplemental card pack made available for the game and, as such, we should talk about currency and how much it costs to get one of these packs

First let's review the different types of currency available in Teppen:


A single card pack comes with six random cards. You have the option to grab one with either real money or in-game currency. Each pack costs the equivalent of 240 Zenny or one "CORE Pack Ticket". In the case of the later, these are things that you can get by playing the game without spending a dime, if you prefer. Teppen is quite generous giving the player a few "CORE" Pack Tickets when you start playing for the first time, so no worries. Ultimately, you don't have to use your credit card to get all the cards but one (more about that particular card in a future post). Alternatively, you can also buy Jewels with real money. If you go with that option, card packs cost 240 Jewels a piece.

Let's take a look at the cost of purchasing Jewels for both Europe and North America.



There is another alternative way to get individual cards, too. Each card from the Core Card Pack can be crafted with Souls you acquire doing different tasks or reaping cards from your own library (card you don't use, duplicates, etc.). The cost to craft a card depends on the rarity of the card. Common cards require 50 Souls and legendary cards require upwards of +3000 Souls.

Okay and with all that out of the way, let's look at the Mega Man X cards from the Core Card Pack. This is part 1 of the MMX cards; come back in a few days for the rest of the lot.

  1. I love the cards' artworks. They look amazing. I just wished this game was getting a physical release.

    1. The way this game works wouldn't make sense with a physical release. They'd have to make up new game mode entirely.

  2. Thanks. The love for Colonel is strong in this game, I love that.

  3. Am I the only one that doesn't give a **** about these "card games"? Seriously, I'm even more interested in a MM StarForce or MM Battle Network game rather than this :/

    1. You're obviousely not the only person, other just do what most generally do when they're not interested in something: ignoring it.

    2. How ironic that you don't give a shit about card games when Battle Network and Star Force are technically card games.

  4. Hell yes to Flame Stag, Overdrive Osterich, and Neon Tiger. Trio of my favorite Mavericks right there.

  5. The artwork for the Maverick bosses is quite impressive, but Overdrive Ostrich is not an "it" and there's a grammatical hiccup in the sentence. Localization team needs to pay more attention.
