Report: Deep Down Will Not Include Playable Female Characters


Apparently, only men are good enough to be playable in Capcom’s upcoming RPG for the PlayStation 4 Deep Down. According to a translation by DualShockers of a Nico Nico livestream presentation, producer Kazunori Sugiura confirmed that there will only be male playable characters in the game.

The reason given, at least by DualShockers, is that the decision is bound to the game’s storyline in some way.

The translation of the presentation by DualShockers also states that the game’s difficulty settings will be fixed for launch, PS Vita remote will be supported and the story mode will be divided into chapters.

Additionally, there will reportedly be just four weapon types to choose from at launch. However, more weapons will be added to the game via post-release updates. The reason given for the lack of weapon choice at launch is because “each weapon has a very different gameplay style.”
