Deep Down Being Free-to-Play Is A Necessary Risk Says Capcom

During a recent shareholders meeting, Capcom were asked to comment on Deep Down and the fact that the free-to-play approach can be very risky. (Deep Down, PS3)

Deep Down being an actual game is a necessary risk for Capcom.

Get used to it.

"Our first free-to-play".

This gen will be something...

I don't mind F2P games just not P2W.

Is this game even getting a worldwide release?

Last I heard it was still japan only.

And that is sick a shame too. Reception had been stellar

The Beta is Japan only but no where did they say the full release wouldn't be worldwide. They showed it off at several western events including the PS4 reveal. It will come out of Japan.

Well they did post on the European Official PlayStation blog about a month ago. With a trailer in full English. Also promised more info about Deep Down for July. So I would assume it is at very least coming to Europe and Japan.

I don't know how to feel about it. This is Capcom and they will be sure to nickel and dime you.

If their past record is anything to go by expect a pay2win model :/

I completely forgot about this game.

I reckon Capcom are trying to slowly kill of this venture, by keeping it on the downlow.

It would be wise to forget about this game and be ok with it if it ever shows up. If capcom ever gets bought, this game might be scraped. It seems like there is a lack of consistency and clear picture of the direction they are taking with this game.

Still waiting for Monster Hunter 4 on vita, or at least a N.A. release.
KonsoruMasuta  +   48d ago
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is coming to NA next year. This was confirmed a while ago
They were showing it off at Nintendo's Treehouse stream at E3.

I don't know about a vita version though. Probably won't happen.

It needs to go multi-platform.

Better buy a 3DS. The only MH game coming to vita is the mmo version japan has had for awhile. I had to suck it up and buy a wii u just for MH3U.

It's hard to believe anything they say. They just constantly make the wrong call over 'n over. This game's visuals are nothing compared to the original trailer that claimed to be real-time in-engine. The lighting, fire/water and other fx are still top notch. The overall polycount and ground textures and other textures and parts of the backdrop are very basic and muddy. Nothing like the original trailer way back.

It's hard to believe a company like Crapcom will be able to pull off a f2p game with a solid and non-p2w system.

deep down looks delicious! hurry up and verify a western release pls capcom

What's quite worrying is that this is the only game Capcom have in development for next gen. I think we're looking at a dying Capcom. This game may never make it to western shores.

They just released dead rising 3 dude and there have been leaks to resident evil 7 and street fight V so slow down dude
WitWolfy  +   48d ago
This game could be DOA for all we know. Remember how watch dogs got hyped too death? Could happen again.
