Capcom Reveals Future Plans and Deep Down Screenshots

Deep Down 2

We don’t know very much about Capcom’s upcoming PS4-exclusive dungeon crawler, Deep Down, but the game’s official Twitter account posted two HD screenshots the other day, along with an announcement that the public beta will be sometime this summer.

The announcement specifically mentioned more information would be coming in June, so maybe we’ll be learning more at E3. We certainly hope so.

Deep Down

Capcom’s plans for the future mention they plan to make more online games like Deep Down, “reinforce the DLC strategy,” work on their mobile game library, and focus on “a lineup of powerful titles,” of which several successful series are listed:

  • Resident Evil
  • Monster Hunter
  • Dead Rising
  • Street Fighter
  • Devil May Cry
  • Lost Planet

From the wording, we aren’t entirely sure if this means Capcom has big plans for those series, or if they were just given as examples of powerful series it has released in the past.

Between their DLC strategy and the series they mentioned (and series they didn’t mention), some fans are irked by Capcom’s plans. What do you think?

New Strider Game Coming

July 18, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


Capcom has decided to revive one of its old IPs, as a new Strider game was announced today at San Diego Comic-Con. Strider is being developed by Double Helix, the same company working on the new Killer Instinct, and it will be released in early 2014 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC (Steam).

Strider will be a 2.5D sidescroller, with a nonlinear structure similar to that of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. According to the official game description, players will control young assassin Hiryu in his mission to destroy Grand Master Meio. Capcom added that it will include “high-speed Cypher combat,” new Cypher abilities, and robot allies.

More details will be revealed as development progresses.
