Shinsekai: Into the Depths

Action-based deep-sea exploration game Shinsekai: Into the Depths, which first launched for Apple Arcade in September 2019, is now available for Switch via the Nintendo eShop for $19.99, publisher Capcom announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via Capcom:

About

Shinsekai: Into the Depths is an action-based deep-sea exploration game in which players assume the role of the last surviving human being who must venture into an unexplored, aquatic world. During their exploration, players can collect resources that will allow them to upgrade their gear, craft new items and advance deeper into the abyss. Divers will need to keep a close eye on their oxygen and pressure levels as they further explore this enchanting world and discover mysterious ruins. Diving into this underwater platform game is easy for players of all skill levels to do, but surviving the deep sea is difficult to master and will challenge the most experienced divers.

The Shinsekai: Into the Depths development team took an indie development approach to the project in order to provide players with a unique and immersive new gaming experience. To enhance the underwater atmosphere, the developers at Capcom Japan took recorded music and sound effects and played them through speakers that were submerged in water and re-recorded new audio, creating an extra level of underwater realism. Shinsekai: Into the Depths introduces several new features with the release on Nintendo Switch. “Another Dive” is a time-based mode featuring two difficulty levels that will challenge even the most experienced divers. Additionally, an all-new “Jukebox Mode” has been added to enhance players’ immersive audio experience.

“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 26.

Key Features

  • Captivating Deep-Sea Adventure – Explore the treacherous depths of the deep sea, as humanity’s lone survivor is forced deeper beneath the waves by a slowly encroaching global winter.
  • Action-based Exploration – Manage your resources while navigating increasingly hostile environments teeming with different forms of underwater life.
  • Expanded New Gameplay Options – Take on the challenging “Another Dive” time attack mode, which tasks players with descending through a perilous maze as quickly as possible in order to confront a new monstrous threat. Those wishing to up the pressure can also brave its Hardcore mode, which places the player in an antique diving suit with even fewer resources at their disposal.
  • New “Jukebox Mode” – Remix the game’s atmospheric background music in this new mode which allows players to alter their audio experience by adding, removing and modifying audio filters such as music depth
