Capcom Announces Panta Rhei Engine and New Deep Down IP

Posted by Katy Ellis

Looks suspiciously like Dragon's Dogma

Yoshinori Ono, videogame producer at Capcom and main producer of the Street Fighter IV series, announced Capcom's new next generation engine named Panta Rhei earlier today, showing off its stunning power with a new fantasy IP under the working title of Deep Down.

The video footage of the aforementioned title showed a warrior in heavy armour fighting a fire-breathing dragon with fire arrows in an icy cave, reminiscent somewhat of Capcom's latest franchise Dragon's Dogma. Ono did not confirm that the new IP would be an exclusive to the PS4, so it is likely that Deep Down will receive a multi-platform release.

You can watch the gameplay footage shown at the Sony conference below.

I'm wondering if it's actually Sony's exclusive IP to fill the Monster Hunter slot.

Lets all make engines!!!

In 2018 people will wonder how they got away with graphics this bad.

I wonder how and why this is an exclusive new IP? Surely Capcom is making a sequel to Dragon as well?

What happened to the MT Framework engine?

Well, regardless, Deep Down looks flippin' amazing! Just watching that fight with the dragon in the dark had me on the edge of my seat!

Imagine what it would be like actually PLAYING it...
