Capcom has been mum on their fantasy dungeon crawler Deep Down since 2015, but a recent trademark filing suggests that the Japanese company still has plans for the game. The new trademark was filed last week on February 9, and can be viewed online. This is an all-new trademark, not to be confused with the original one that was filed in 2013, and was recently given in extension in August of last year.
The planned PlayStation 4 exclusive was originally unveiled at the 2013 PlayStation Meeting by Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono. It was then announced to be a free-to-play game at Tokyo Game Show 2013. Since then news has been light on the title, and it missed its expected 2014 launch. Capcom’s Kazunori Sugiura last commented on the game in early 2015 saying that Deep Down had grown in scale, and that it was still in development.
It’s now been almost four years since Deep Down was originally unveiled, and if Capcom does still have plans for the free-to-play dungeon crawler then we should be getting some news soon. Although considering how long it has been without any updates, who knows if the game is still planning to be free, or if it’ll even resemble the role-playing game that captured the attention of PlayStation gamers back in 2013.
Let us know in the comments below if you’re still excited about Deep Down being in development, or if your anticipation has dried up due to the lack of news on the Capcom title.
