Deep Down set in New York 2094

At Sony’s conference today Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono revealed a new trailer and gameplay for its upcoming release, deep down. From the trailer video the game is set in a futuristic 2094 New York and it appears the game’s story takes inspiration from the Assassin’s Creed series.

The game will also be using Capcom’s new Panta Rhei engine which has the ability to automatically generate creatures, items and equipment during the game, as well as change creatures appearances based on time and place. Ono-san also mentioned they tried to focus on the graphics ‘liquid expression.’

deep down will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show, September 19th-22nd.
