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'm quite looking forward to the dungeon crawler. Might be a bit of a wait, from the sound of it: the Japanese release has been pushed back.

"I think we'll give full-fledged information to everyone after the summer, so you may have to wait for a little while beyond the launch [of PS4] on February 22nd," Kazunori Sugiura said to Dengeki Online, as translated by DualShockers. "Since we don't want to risk to be told 'This could have been done on PS3!' we want to finish a game that fully uses the PS4 hardware specs."

Which is funny, because everything I've seen of Deep Down has looked, well, awesome. Or maybe the fire-breathing dragon tech demo isn't indicative of the rest of the game? Either way, I want Capcom to nail this -- taking more time out to do so is perfectly fine by me.

This new TGS Deep Down Japanese trailer is in English

I know a lot of people have no faith in Capcom these days, but Deep Down looks interesting to me every time I see it. It doesn't look quite as good as a Souls game mechanically, but I'll take everything I can get i...more

New Deep Down footage, beta delayed until 2015

Deep Down, Capcom's free-to-play PS4 action game, was meant to get a beta in Japan this summer, but producer Kazunori Sugiura has announced the beta test will be delayed until 2015. Localization details have yet to come...more

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

Deep Down is getting a Japanese beta this summer

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

Deep Down will not have playable female characters

Capcom's Deep Down has been on many gamer's radar since it was first announced back at the system's unveiling. As Sony's latest console edges closer and closer to its Japanese this month, so does new information regarding the...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

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate brings a lot of verticality to the table

When the west finally gets Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate -- what Capcom calls "the most complete version of 4 that it'll get" -- players are going to need to turn their attention to the layering of the game. Rather...more

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 raises more questions than answers

My time with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 at Tokyo Game Show was brief -- maybe 20 minutes if we're being generous. Swiftly dumped into the beginning of the game, I was left to try to unravel the mystery of what exactly ...more

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...

Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f...more
