Watch Capcom's online PlayStation 4 RPG in action.

Capcom is live streaming gameplay footage of Deep Down at the Tokyo Game Show.

According to PlayStation Japan, the footage is being streamed via Ustream using PlayStation 4’s Share functionality.

The online RPG is currently playable on the show floor. Read a full report on that demo here. And an interview with Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono here.

Watch the live stream below.

  • Zackasaur

    Very cool! The player seems new to it.

    The game itself looks awesome.

  • Zackasaur

    The music is enchanting…

  • Seasqwaa

    The gameplay seems a little bland. But yeah, I guess this is just the start of it all. It looks great though. Looking forward for some more.

    • Zackasaur

      It’s just one weapon, with a basic character. Undoubtedly, it gets a lot more diverse. Plus, it will have some pretty crazy enemies.

      This basically shows the premise and how it runs… Both of which are pretty stunning. I love the way enemies react to where they are stabbed.

      • Seasqwaa

        Aye! It looked really weighty, the hit. Which I’m a big fan of here. Not trying to be skeptical or anything, I guess I’ve just never liked spears. Really looking forward to the rest of it. It looks like it’s running pretty nicely too.

        • Zackasaur

          Yeah, I’m also not much of a spear player. I’m usually into sword. I can’t say why they’ve chosen to only show off the spear gameplay so far, but I’m sure we’ll see more in time. They released a screenshot with a sword… In fact, it’s the header of this article now.

          • Seasqwaa

            Oh damn! Don’t even know how I missed that picture. heh. Very niiiiiice!

    I really hope that overlay voice won’t be a repetitive thing.

    • Zackasaur

      Different dungeons have different voices. They’re a sort of thought-narration.

      Each dungeon is based on a memory, and each memory has a central emotion as its concept. As I understand it, the dungeons, enemies, etc. will reflect this theme.

      • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

        Thanks for the information.

  • SuperLuigi

    Game looks neat. Very pretty but is this whole game all dungeon based on randomized maps?

    • Zackasaur

      I think they’re all randomly generated, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be very different. Each type of dungeon is based on different memories, with different emotions as aesthetics.

      So, while it’s sort of a dungeon crawler, it should not get repetitive, when you factor in the narratives, aesthetics, and randomisation.

      • SuperLuigi

        But the fact that it is basically all dungeons could make it repetitive. I’m not saying it will be but I can see it getting boring quick if there isn’t too much of a changeup. I hope it’s good but I’m getting xb1 first anyway so I have time to listen to people’s opinions before I’ll get to play it.

  • bloodiOS

    Ooh yeah, can you feel dem thrusts?

    • Willgaea

      Poke, poke, Super lightning blade!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I’m here. I’m watching. I can’t say for sure if I will make it for all the live streams tonight leading into the morning.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I’m here for now. Looks like they finally found a monster to fight.

    • Willgaea

      The player looks like he never played the game. Which is a nice way to see someone wing it.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Seems way easier than a Souls game so far.

        • MrFinalgamer

          but the game is gorgeous, and dat music!

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            I’m liking what I’ve seen so far.

        • Willgaea

          Yeah these monsters are like dynasty warrior minion dumb.

          • Zackasaur

            A lot of Souls monsters are dumb, too. lol

        • Zackasaur

          I too thought that at first, but now I’m not so sure! The gameplay we’re seeing later in the stream is looking quite difficult.

          And I’m thinking this demo has unlimited HP, too.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            I think so, too.

  • Willgaea

    I not seeing any form of exp gained when killing monsters. So I take it that this game is going to be gear/ loot based?

    • Zackasaur

      I would -guess- that stats come from a gear levelling system, instead of a character levelling system. But I’m not sure.

  • Willgaea

    The person playing the game has one goal in mind.
    Aim for the face, aim for the face!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Dragon looks pretty sweet.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Did he just freeze time?

    • Willgaea

      I missed it.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        He used an item or casted a spell. Was hard to tell. Everything froze and he like pre-loaded up some fireballs which really hurt the Dragon when time unfroze. Or whatever that was.

  • Willgaea

    Have they shown a slashing weapon in action? I came in a little late.

    • Yuri Meitzen

      i’m yet to see it too… only saw piercing attacks until now… you “can” slash with the spear though…

  • new_tradition

    Just dropped in. Dang, this game looks gorgeous. Already digging the music to boot.

  • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

    I’m not even on the dragon part yet.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Monster Hunter on Vita!

  • new_tradition

    Hmm…Seems there might be a itty little issue with depth perception. The player seemed to have thrusted the spear not close enough to the enemy…

    (There’s no way to jump the vid ahead, is there? I’m reading comments about dragons, and I’ve seen nothing of the sort yet xD)

  • Willgaea

    Alright so I saw about 5 minutes and all I have to say is “ill buy it when it comes out.” I don’t want any more spoilers :P

  • Fainaru Luna

    Will this have character customization?

    • Zackasaur

      Yes.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Looks like that was it. I know some of you are catching up.

  • MrFinalgamer

    so looks like it really was in-game footage back in february. Capcom is definitely getting my money with this game! looks gorgeous, and quite fun (and did any of you see the fire O_O BEST FIRE EVER!)

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      The fire did look impressive. Hard to judge quality via stream. I’m still very interested in the game. I’m glad they decided to do something different from the Souls games. I don’t want a clone of another game.

  • new_tradition

    I feel dumb, I can’t see the player HP gauge…Can anyone tell me? xD

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I’m actually not sure I saw anything like that. They might have turned it off and had infinite health on for the demo.

      • new_tradition

        Oh, okay. What a nice option ;D

        • Yuri Meitzen

          look at his pocket on the belt… there’s a circular blue thing… i might be it… or like zero said… it’s still turned off

          • new_tradition

            Oh, true. I was wondering about that.

  • Zackasaur

    Ooh, magic grenade!

  • LordKaiser

    MGS5 is next ^^

  • Zackasaur

    Woah, what was that Continue option? : o

    • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

      Someone else must have taken over the controller for the other guy because who ever is playing this now sucks.

      • Zackasaur

        Yeah…

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero
  • new_tradition

    I’ve been watching a while (still no dragon scene *pouts*), but I guess essentially you the player fight you way down levels (i.e. Deep Down?). I guess I didn’t pay attention to the info. I thought it was more than a dungeon crawler…

    • Zackasaur

      “Deep Down” is also a reference to the game’s psychological aspect. Dungeons are based on memories, with a single emotion as the theme. The designs, enemies, etc. reflect this emotion.

      Alas, they’re only showing a tiny bit of content here. It’s cool to see how the randomisation of dungeons works, though! And enemies react to hits really well.

  • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

    When the hell am I going to see this dragon battle?

  • http://lfdn.deviantart.com/ CosmicNova

    I’m done here. Don’t have the time to wait on this Dragon fight.

  • Dandelion

    Is it just me or do any of you feel same way as me? it looks really similar to Resident Evil !?! The gameplay looks like resident evil version rpg . Looks gorgeous btw.
