Recently, Deep Down — Capcom’s upcoming PS4 exclusive — has been taking some backlash. In an interview with Nico Nico, producer Kazunori Sugiura stated that there were twelve main characters in Deep Down, and all of them male. No female characters.
Mr. Sugiura has taken to Facebook (translated by Gematsu) to calm everyone down. What happened was that he was translated incorrectly, and that there is in fact only a single main character, though the character is indeed male.
“From our overseas firm, there was big misconception in an article claiming that there were 12 main characters* in Deep Down, all of them male,” Sugiura wrote. “As the person in charge on the development side, I’d like to explain the matter.
“There is one male main character in Deep Down. The story is being developed around him and his surrounding Ravens comrades.”
Deep Down is a Free-to-Play title. While the game is only set for a Japanese release, we’re confident that it’ll make its way West. Deep Down was unveiled at the PS4 reveal event over a year ago and has continued to impress each time it has been shown off.
