Capcom secret-reveals ‘Project Battle,’ a Capcom card battling game

So, this one really came out of nowhere! Just last night, video game personality Maximilian Doodstreamed an early build of a brand new Capcom game called Project Battle. This is a card battling game where you play using classic Capcom characters like Ryu and Mega Man X. Franchises shown off in the stream include Street Fighter, Mega Man, Darkstalkers, Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry, and probably more. No platforms, pricing, or even a final name for Project Battle have been revealed yet.

YouTube channel Duel Links Meta is revealing details about how the game plays though, which you can view below. The game seems comparable to Hearthstone. You select a Capcom character, each of which has three special abilities. Then you build a 30-card deck. The short, 1:48 video describes it a lot better than I can, because the truth is I’ve never played of any these digital card battlers.

Apparently, in these previews Project Battle is being played on a custom emulator that demonstrates how Capcom would desire the game to look. So this game is genuinely very early in its development.

Well, in any case, consider my curiosity piqued. Capcom has a bunch of beloved franchises (Mega Man!), and I might consider knocking them around in a card battling format.

Stay tuned for more developments, and check out images below.
