During Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal event, Capcom showed off Deep Down, a game slated for PS4 and running on Capcom's next-gen engine, codenamed "Panta Rhei." The game looks positively medieval, not too dissimilar from Capcom property Dragon's Dogma. There are even dragons. Still, on the Capcom forum, senior VP Christian Svensson put the kibosh on any notions of relation between the two games: "For reference [Dead Rising 3] and Deep Down have nothing to do with Dragon's Dogma."

Meanwhile, the Dragon's Dogma franchise, post Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, is presently persisting as a free-to-play Vita exclusive, Dragon's Dogma Quest. Capcom is adamant about turning the series into one of its flagship franchises. Maybe Deep Down is something like a spiritual forebearer to Dragon's Dogma, allowing Capcom to test the next-gen waters and its new engine with a fresh IP before going all in with another Dragon's Dogma?

On the topic of Deep Down, Svensson noted, "It’s still quite far off. Ono-san tweeted we’d have it at E3 next year." Could Capcom up and run both games simultaneously despite perceived overlap? Or does having Deep Down at E3 next year back up the notion of it coming out first while Dragon's Dogma gets a new game announced at the conference?

Ah, there's our Deep Down E3 2014 trailer

There was no mention of Deep Down during the free-to-play segment of Sony's E3 press conference, much to our concern. The game is still alive and well, however -- just not here in the West. Capcom hasn't made any announcemen...more

Two new screens for Deep Down are out in the wild, compliments of producer Kazunori Sugiura's Twitter account. But Sugiura also had a few updates for the game, noting that Capcom is currently being "intensively developed...more

This Deep Down trailer has plenty of action

Deep Down is coming along nicely, and now you can get a better look at some of the more terrifying creatures in the game. That includes a Mimic treasure chest monster, giant abominations, and tiny gross slug monsters. Everything is looking great so far, and as a Souls fan, I can't wait to give it a try at some point. Hopefully it'll be localized sometime this year.more

Tighten up those graphics: Deep Down delayed in Japan

You know, I keep forgetting that Deep Down technically hasn't been announced for release outside of Japan. It's surely coming, though, and besides its reliance on a free-to-play model (I'd rather just pay up front, thanks) I'...more

Deep Down trademarked for North America and Europe

I don't think anyone ever doubted that Capcom's online PS4 RPG Deep Down would be coming to the west. You didn't, did you?  It was never officially announced, but they showed it at the PS4's US debut, showed it to wester...more

This Deep Down Prologue trailer is pretty neat

It's been awhile since we've heard anything about Capcom's online next-gen game Deep Down. I played their Tokyo Game Show demo, but that demo was so short that it was hard to form an opinion on the game. All I can tell you s...more

Deep Down can theoretically produce infinite dungeons

I still can't grasp the concept of Capcom making a free-to-play dungeon crawler in the same vein as Demon's/Dark Souls, but here we are with Deep Down, which is currently in development for the PS4. Things seem to be going we...more

Deep Down is a free-to-play title

Capcom's upcoming next gen title Deep Down is a free-to-play title. Yeeeeeeep. Announced today at Tokyo Game Show, this PS4 game will see a public beta in February in Japan. Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this on Twitter, and now that tweet is bouncing around the universe, falling on confused ears. That...that is... Wow. But from what I saw this week I'll likely pay. Maybe.more
