Report: No playable females, four weapon styles at Deep Down launch

The dungeons of Capcom's Deep Down may as well have a sign above them reading "No girls allowed." According to a DualShockers translation of a Niconico livestream presentation of the game, Deep Down will not feature playable female characters. It's not clear why this would be the case, but DualShockers claims it has something to do with the game's story.

Additional details were also revealed during the stream, such as how the game's difficulty will be fixed, though changes can be made server-side by Capcom if necessary. DualShocker's translation also claims that Deep Down will only have four weapon styles available at launch, with more to be added in later.

Three weapon styles have been revealed thus far: sword and shield, spear and greatsword. Wait ... you don't think ... no playable female characters plus one more weapon style to be revealed ... what if a female character is the fourth weapon? Hey, it's happened before.
