Capcom is taking a long time to release Deep Down, but they’re also working hard on its engine Panta Rhey, including effects that are definitely impressive.
The developer had a session at CEDEC 2014 in Tokyo, and the Japanese site 4gamer published a few of the videos and picture that were shown, showcasing a few of those advanced effects.
Pre-Integrated Skin Shading
Voxel Cone Tracing for Indirect Lighting (the same tech as The Tomorrow Children) off and on
Screen Space Reflections off and on
One thing is for sure: with this kind of graphics Capcom might be taking its time, but if the gameplay is even remotely comparable, we’re in for a real treat.
We can only hope to hear a localization announcement some time down the line.
