Deep Down’s TGS 2014 trailer shows us the future

The story in Capcom’s Deep Down will bounce back and forth between the glossy future of 2094 and the demonic catacombs of 1494. But how these two time periods relate to each other is still a big mystery.

The PS4 game’s later trailer, released to coincide with the Tokyo Game Show, doesn’t give us any new hints, but it does give us another look at one of 2015’s most intriguing games.

Still no new Deep Down news… but here’s an E3 2014 trailer

There was a new trailer for Deep Down at E3 2014 at both the Sony and Capcom booths, but there’s no new information to be had just yet. Game Producer Yoshinori Ono said, “What we’ve released on deep down so far is quite mysterious in nature, and I’m sure fans are eager to hear more concrete info” on the PlayStation Blog. But after that, he gave a “heartfelt apology” about making fans wait longer.

Deep Down will be coming to the PlayStation 4 at some point.

Explore more dungeons with a new Deep Down trailer

Capcom has released a new trailer for their upcoming RPG, Deep Down, and it’s a good one. “Bad men took me away… and I woke up here, in the dark… you’re coming for me, aren’t you?” says a small child. Also, check out that Mimic at the 32 second mark. Yes.

Deep Down is scheduled to be released on the PlayStation 4 sometime this year.

Looks like Deep Down will officially be titled Deep Down after all

When Capcom announced Deep Down, they were quick to stress that the game’s rather oddball title was just a placeholder and that they’d give it a more permanent name in the future. Instead, Capcom has decided that the working title is a perfectly cromulent name, so Deep Down it is!

The official title was revealed thanks to an application Capcom filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office on December 17. But we all probably should have seen this coming, the game’s most recent trailer didn’t include the “working title” designation.

Another Deep Down trailer mixes monsters and medieval knights

Deep Down will make its debut on the PlayStation 4 sometime next year as a free-to-play title. While we still have no idea how that’ll work, Capcom has released a new trailer showcasing the game’s “Prologue” scene.

OK, I watched it and I still have no idea what Deep Down is going for.

Deep Down will be Free-To-Play with an open beta available in early 2014

Capcom’s Deep Down is like an enigma that just keeps getting enigma-ier. OK, that’s not a word. But the game’s development has taken a ton of twists and turns since it was revealed earlier this year.

First, we thought it would turn out to be multiplatform. Nope. Deep Down is a PS4 exclusive. Then, we thought it was a medieval dragon-fighting epic. Nope. Turns out the whole thing takes place in New York City about 80 years into the future. Now, Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios division, has tweeted that Deep Down will be released as a free-to-play title:

When you stop and think about it, it actually makes a weird kind of sense. From what we’ve seen of the game so far, players in Deep Down start in some futuristic hub level and then descend into the demon-infested dungeons below. Selling some of the dungeons to players piecemeal while keeping a small selection of them free could work. If nothing else, it’s very similar to how Microsoft is handling Killer Instinct.

The PS4 is scheduled to launch in Japan on February 22, 2014. Hopefully the open beta will be available internationally so we can all find out how it works together.

WHAT? Capcom’s “medieval” RPG Deep Down takes place in 2094

Up until now, Capcom’s action RPG for the PS4, Deep Down, has given off a strong “medieval” vibe with its combination of armored knights battling dragons and other assorted beasties in the dank catacombs typically associated with the European Middle Ages. But if you pay close attention to the game’s most recent trailer, you’ll notice that it actually takes place in the year 2094. Oh, and the game’s dank passageways aren’t located underneath Europe. The “Deep Down” of the title actually refers to the tunnels beneath New York City.

Has your mind been blown? Good, because the trailer ends with a tease that the game may also have something to do with memory manipulation. Say it with me… “Whoa!”

This new teaser for Deep Down will freak you out, but maybe only if you live in Japan

Capcom has released a new teaser trailer for their PS4-exclusive online multiplayer RPG Deep Down. Featuring a long descent down a dark, cavernous shaft, various voices can be heard rasping and whispering, before flashes of various creatures attack the camera, including a demonic looking bear and a… thing with an open ribcage full of teeth. It’s pretty freaky, and presents the game in a much different tone from the knights versus dragons game shown at E3.

While Capcom keeps us guessing, Forbes has revealed that, at the moment, Capcom is still undecided as to whether the game will see a release outside of Japan.
