At Sony's pre-TGS press conference, Capcom's Yoshinoro Ono spilled a few more details on the mysterious Deep Down, the fantasy PS4 RPG first unveiled at the console's reveal back in February. First and foremost, the game is bizarrely set in 2094 despite its medieval looks - it's not exactly clear why that's the case, but Ono did mention players being able to read the "memories" of items. We suspect there's some kind of Assassin's Creed-type tomfoolery going on here, but whatever it is, it's certainly curious.
Ono reiterated Deep Down is an online multiplayer RPG, but added that it will feature automatically generated maps, enemies and equipment. We'll look to find out more at the Tokyo Game Show itself, where Ono announced Deep Down will be playable. If you're waiting for a release date, you'll have to hold out a bit longer - Ono hopes to reveal more once the PS4 launches in Japan in February, 2014.
