As the week comes to a close, the last remnants of information, gameplay and general public relations marketing trickles in from E3 2014. For example, Capcom has released a Deep Down gameplay trailer in English, hinting at some of the more story-driven aspects of the free-to-play PS4 exclusive.
To me, and I mean this as a positive, but the dungeon-crawling goodness of Deep Down still looks to be a next-gen clone of a Dark Souls title. Even though the game is set in a 2094 New York, where your home is a (potential) luxury apartment, but gameplay-wise, as you venture into the past, the fiery depths of hell and gruesome monsters that you face in an action-RPG title (complete with mediocre/terrible voice acting performances) screams a From Software adaptation. There’s even Souls-esque huge boss battles included in the trailer.
Regardless, the Panta Rhei engine continues to look absolutely stunning, as the rendering of fire, light and particle physics look too good to be true. You would think that Capcom would do a better job of pushing the game at E3, but perhaps it is still some ways from being completely playable without issue.
Deep Down will be coming exclusively to PS4 later this year in Japan. Hopefully the localized version will be coming to North America this year, as well, but that seems like likely. We’re wrapping up on the final news and gameplay demos surrounding E3 2014, so keep it here at GameSided.com!
