Shinsekai: Into the Depths is Out on Nintendo Switch

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 this enchanting world and discover the secrets held within its mysterious ruins.

The development team took an indie development approach to create Shinsekai: Into the Depths to provide players with a unique and immersive new gaming experience. To enhance the underwater atmosphere, the developers at Capcom Japan rerecorded music and sound effects being played through submerged speakers to create an extra level of underwater realism.

Introduction

The land has been covered with ice,
forcing mankind to take refuge in the ocean.
Years have passed, but the all-consuming ice moves slowly but steadily on, and civilization has fallen into decay.

One lone survivor lives on in solitude.
Desolate days lead into aimless nights, and the aquanaut passes the time in rote repetition.
But one day, a chance encounter leads to the discovery of a mysterious drone-like machine.

That meeting will lead them both deeper into a vast undersea world.

“What happened to the world above?”
“Are there others out there?”
“What secrets lie at the bottom of the ocean?”

Venture deeper as you seek answer to these and other questions whose answers may lie down below.

The undersea world that awaits is both beautiful and terrible.
Encounter sea creatures, brave mounting water pressure, and conserve oxygen as you press on into the undersea ruins, seeking the truth.

Gameplay

Venture into unknown waters and encounter all manner of sea life.
Uncover the mysteries of an undersea world.

True to its undersea setting, this game offers a unique sense of underwater traversal not found in your average land-based action game.
Make your way through ruined civilizations and the obstacles they present as you search to find what lies beneath.
Make use of numerous abilities and items as you plunge ever deeper, exploring and excavating along the way.

What hidden truths lie in wait at the end of your aquatic adventure?

New Features

Shinsekai: Into the Depths introduces several new features with its release on Nintendo Switch, including the all-new “Another Dive” time-challenge mode with two difficulty levels, in addition to the 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 Dive”, those wishing to truly test their mettle can also brave its Hardcore mode, which adds more pressure by placing the player in an antique diving suit and offers even fewer resources. Audiophiles can take a break from the 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 such as music depth.

“Another Dive” and “Jukebox Mode” will be available in a free title update for Apple Arcade subscribers on iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, Mac® and Apple TV® on March 27th.
