PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Gets More Details on the Ravens and their Logo, New Trailer Coming This Week

on October 14, 2013 5:26 PM

There’s still a lot of mystery shrouding the PS4 exclusive Deep Down, especially for what the story is concerned, but Capcom provided some more information on the mysterious “Ravens” that will serve as the protagonists of the game (scroll under the tweets for a translation).

As you can see the second tweet includes the logo of the Ravens, and here’s a translation of the text:

Today I will give a small introduction on the beings with special powers known as “Ravens”.

“Ravens” are “Watarigarasu” (Japanese word for Raven), and they appear in Norse mythology as a motif of two feathers governing over “thought” and “memory.”

In the place where these ravens come from, they are able to fly through “thought” and “memory”, leading a life in both the “current world” and the “past world.” It’s known as “the ability to cross between the two different worlds.”

Also, the “Ravens” that have this special ability belong to a “certain organization.” We’d like to explain that in another occasion. Next week, a new trailer will explain the rooms where Toro and Kuro were placed.

The last part may prove a little obscure to some: Toro and Kuro are the mascots of PlayStation in Japan, and they appear at the end of the Tokyo Game Show trailer, as you can see below. The two mysterious “rooms” appeared in the trailer as well, and in two screenshots that you can also check out below for reference. Interestingly enough the furniture in the rooms is also white and black like Toro and Kuro.

The two rooms will be detailed in an upcoming trailer, that will be released this week (the tweets say “next week”, but it’s already “next week” now). Looks like we’re in for some more Deep Down goodness quite soon.
