Shinsekai: Into the Depths Out Now on Nintendo Switch

March 25, 2020 – Unveiled during today’s Nintendo Direct, Capcom’s action-based deep-sea exploration game Shinsekai: Into the Depths is available now for digital download on the Nintendo Switch™ system for MSRP $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 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.

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 ArcadeSM subscribers on iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, Mac® and Apple TV® on March 26th.
