Details on the player's weapon and armor coming next week.

This week’s Deep Down Facebook update discusses the upcoming PlayStation 4 RPG’s dungeons.

Within dungeons exist residual thoughts called “mementos,” and the ones you can get change according to a dungeon’s “emotions.”

Emotions, such as anger and sadness, exist in great numbers, and a dungeon’s contents will significantly change to match its emotion.

For example, a dungeon of anger would feature blazing flames, and a dungeon of sadness would be bound with thick ice. Dungeon capture methods also vary.

At the Tokyo Game Show, we saw dungeons of the joy emotion. Although dark, the light that shined in at certain points were portrayed as expressions of hope.

During next week’s update, Capcom will share more details about the player character, particularly focused on his weapons and armor.

    Ah, that actually sounds interesting

  • captainhowdy

    I really hope this game is good. Also hope the FTP model is like Killer Instinct, if I want to buy the whole game or different “seasons”, I can *crosses fingers*.

    • Budgiecat

      KI model is horrible

      • captainhowdy

        Ha-ha, only in your mind Budgie. It’s actually pretty good for FTP model. I don’t want to keep paying for things, I would rather pay all in one than get charged for everything I do in the game.

        • Budgiecat

          Id rather just…have a normal retail fighting game…

          • captainhowdy

            I know how you feel. The thing is MS didn’t know if KI would sell a lot so they decided to do it FTP and digital. This saves them a lot of money, because if KI fails, they didn’t spend that much money on it.

            Fighting games aren’t that big like they used to be back in the day. So something like a FTP model might be the future, hopefully it will get people into fighting games again. Hopefully.

    I really want to say something sarcastic and insulting about this, but maybe it’ll actually be a decent feature. Hope the game is good instead of f2p, press x to poke. And, anyway, more dungeon crawlers can only be a good thing (not sarcastic; I genuinely like them).

  • Warboss Aohd

    interestin’ concept. soundz promisin’.

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    I hope theres more then just dungeons, i hate walking down hallways repeatedly.I want some forest!

    • Budgiecat

      play FF XIII lol

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        you cruel fiend

  • ayb_91

    Looks cool !

  • Budgiecat

    looks cool and all but the story makes no sense. It’s like the creators were smoking some serious herb when they came up with that concept. Hopefully the gameplay will be good enough so that it wont matter

  • Invisbin

    That sounds so cute

  • gekitsu

    i dunno. if i only take what i have seen from this game, it looks like a damn solid piece of work somewhere between demons/dark souls and dragons dogma.

    but when i read what they say about it, im like youre drunk, go home.

  • hush404

    I like the look of the game… but I’m always weary when I hear ‘Free to play’ as it usually waters down the experience in order to put stuff behind the ‘pay to play’ idea.

  • Hexodious

    So, uhh.. This is going to be a MMORPG, but for the PS4? Inbefore Playstation Cash shop.

  • Matt Dickinson

    sounds pretty cool. although initially it seemed like it could be a sequel to dragon’s dogma, now it seems more and more its own thing.
