TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CAPCOM—GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc.

These features along with TEPPEN’s intuitive, easy-to-control battles result in a totally new experience for players.
The initial heroes that players will start with the game are Ryu and Chun-Li from the Street Fighter series, Rathalos and Nergigante from the Monster Hunter Series, X from Mega Man X series, Morrigan Aensland from the Darkstalkers series, Dante from the Devil May Cry series, and Wesker from the Resident Evil series. From today, Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil series will join the battle as a new Hero! More new Heroes are planned to be added in the future.
