PS4 Deep Down gameplay at Tokyo Game Show 2013

By Updated on

Now that GamesCom has been and gone, the next major gaming event to look forward to is the Tokyo Game Show 2013 in Japan. Sony has a big presence at the event each year, with the company set to offer the last major look at the PS4 console hardware and software before the highly anticipated launch date of November 15.

You’ll be pleased to hear that there won’t be sign of Sony being lazy either since a date has already been finalized before the Xbox One. We now have word that Sony are bringing as many as 50 titles to show at the event, that number obviously suggesting that indie games are going receive some time in the spotlight at last.

However, one of the big highlights to look forward to is going to be Deep Down, the rather mysterious online RPG that Capcom currently have in development for the PS4, on a brand new next-gen engine called Panta Rhei.

We haven’t seen anything of the game yet other than a few teaser trailers, but the Tokyo Game Show which takes place between September 19-22 could be the moment where Capcom will finally release some proper gameplay.

From what we have seen from the game so far, it looks like Capcom are going down the route of Elder Scrolls and Dark Souls dungeon exploration, without stepping on the toes of Dragon’s Dogma which is obviously a similar style of game.

A lot of gamers are unhappy that Deep Down has turned into an online game only, but we have a feeling Capcom may have something special on their hands once they actually show the first gameplay. If you ask us, we would have actually preferred a next-gen Breath of Fire game instead on PS4, but Deep Down is still looking promising so far.

Have you been keeping an eye on this game? Could Capcom improve their debatable reputation by winning over fans with Deep Down?
