Announced today during the Nintendo Direct, Shinsekai: Into the Depths is a new action-based deep-sea exploration game from Capcom. It is now available for digital download on Switch for $19.99 Shinsekai: Into the Depths submerges players into the solitary struggle of the last-surviving human as they sink ever deeper into an unexplored, aquatic world. In order to escape a rapidly approaching ice age, players must collect resources, upgrade their gear, and craft new items necessary for advancing deeper into the abyss. Divers must keep a close eye on their oxygen and pressure levels as they explore the world and discover its secrets.
The development team took an indie approach to create Shinsekai: Into the Depths to provide players with a unique and immersive experience. To enhance the underwater atmosphere, the developers at Capcom Japan recorded music and sound effects being played through submerged speakers to create another level of underwater realism.
Shinsekai: Into the Depths introduces several new features with its Nintendo Switch release, including the all-new “Another Dive” time-challenge mode with two difficulty levels, as well as a new “Jukebox Mode.” In “Another Dive,” players must descend through a perilous maze as quickly as possible in order to confront a new monstrous threat. After completing “Another Drive,” players that really want to test their abilities can try its Hardcore mode. Hardcore mode adds more pressure by placing the player in an antique diving suit with even fewer resources. Audiophiles can take a break from the underwater action to explore the new “Jukebox Mode,” which allows players to listen to their favorite background music at any time and tinker with a variety of audio filters.
“Another Dive” and “Jukebox Mode” will also be available in a free title update for Apple Arcade subscribers on March 26.
