Recently, Capcom made an announcement about an ambitious online game with the initials DD. But the new Dragon's Dogma wasn't exactly the game that people were expecting Capcom to highlight. So what's going on with that other game?
DEEP DOWN'S NEW TGS TRAILER. Boy, for a game that debuted as some kind of medieval/fantasy fighter, Capcom's Deep Down sure has taken a sci-fi turn.
Capcom's free-to-play role-playing game Deep Down has a new trailer. This is it!
It seems like every teaser for Capcom's big, upcoming PS4 title is designed to confuse viewer with a bunch of random dialogue and rabid monster enemies, while showing off the bleeding-edge tech that makes it run. This one is no different. Still... look at that fire!
The PlayStation 4 comes out in Japan in one month. The privileged who got to pick up theirs out west have been enjoying it for over two months now, but over in Japan gamers and developers alike are anxiously awaiting its release.
If you're a fan of Capcom's Street Fighter series, you've probably heard of Yoshinori Ono: he's been the series' executive producer since Street Fighter IV, which was released back in 2009. But he didn't start out that way.
I got a chance to handle the PS4 at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The graphics definitely look prettier than I've seen on the PS3, but otherwise, it handles pretty much like it should. But I'm looking at it from the player's side. That's the output. What about the input? That's where you have to ask the developers.
Deep Down, Capcom's strange, beautiful, displaced-time online RPG, is going to be free-to-play, and its beta will appear "near the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan," Sony's president of worldwide studios said via Twitter after the news was announced at Tokyo Game Show earlier today.
Does the protagonist hear voices, or is that just the trailer being weird? Why are they speaking German and Spanish? And what's with the boxes at the end? Deep Down, you're scarily hard to decipher. Though you do look ridiculously beautiful.
Since, well, practically none of you will actually be in attendance at this year's Tokyo Game Show, Sony have thoughtfully decided to livestream one of their consoles that has a playable build of Deep Down, Capcom's fancy big PS4 title.
Deep Down looks like what happens when Capcom figures "let's put Dark Souls and Assassin's Creed together!". It sounds like "I'll have a Deep Down, potato & gravy and three pieces of original recipe chicken, thanks".
First revealed earlier this year at the PS4 reveal, Deep Down is being developed as an online game. Its keypoint is "dungeon", so it sounds like this one will be a dungeon crawler. It was revealed at Capcom's Network Game Conference and expected at this year's Tokyo Game Show, where it will have a full playable demo.
Capcom's always-adorable Yoshinori Ono has made an appearance at Sony's PS4 unveiling to announce Deep Down (working title), a new IP.
