Dino Crisis Has Returned, But There's A Catch

The video game industry is no stranger to crossovers. "Fortnite," of course, has loads of characters from other properties, with "Destiny 2" skins and a host of "Dragon Ball" skins being the most recent additions. Epic Games' mega popular battle royale isn't the only place to see unexpected character mashups, however. The recently released platform fighter "MultiVersus" already has an impressive combination of well-known characters, but leaks have teased a massive character roster that could even pit Beetlejuice against Daenerys Targaryen.

While a lot of crossovers allow players to enjoy a variety of popular characters in one place, they're also a great way to bring back classic characters without creating an entirely new game. "Dino Crisis" was a series of survival horror titles that saw its last entry in 2003. It's definitely been a while since the series' protagonist Regina was doing her best to survive an onslaught of hungry dinosaurs, but perhaps her new appearance in Capcom's "Teppen" can hold fans over for a bit longer.

Jurassic Rampage with Regina

For those that unaware, "Teppen" is a free-to-play, collectible card battler that was developed by both Capcom and GungHo Online Entertainment and released on mobile. One of the game's biggest draws is the fact that players can collect iconic Capcom characters. Leon Kennedy from "Resident Evil," Ryu from "Street Fighter," Morrigan Aensland from "Darkstalkers," and may more fan favorites are featured. 

Now, as the latest addition to Capcom's cast of "Teppen" cards, Regina is set to arrive this September as part of the game's Jurassic Rampage expansion. The game's official YouTube channel released a brief rundown of Regina's abilities and utility to give players a taste of how she'll aid them in battle. Of course, if you'd like to know even more about the upcoming expansion the "Teppen" team has also released a more detailed look with additional pieces of information about future updates.

This certainly isn't the way that most fans would likely prefer to see "Dino Crisis" return after being absent for almost twenty years, but it could offer a glimmer of hope that the franchise will see a reboot. The fact that Capcom hasn't forgotten Regina is a good sign, and this may be a way for them to test the waters and see if their fans really are interested in a new "Dino Crisis" title. For now, however, it seems that the only dinosaurs Capcom is interested in are those featured in their upcoming game "Exoprimal."
