General Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchMar 26, 2020

Publisher: CAPCOM

Genres: Adventure, Action

Capcom presents a fresh and original undersea exploration game, filled with unique visual and audio experiences for you to discover. The land has slowly but steadily been covered with ice, forcing mankind to take refuge in the ocean. Even the sea cannot protect them forever. The ice overtakes the undersea home of a lone aquanaut, forcing an unplanned journey of exploration and discovery. Take control and follow a mysterious mechanical creature ever deeper... Could there be others still living on so far beneath the surface? Manage your oxygen reserves as you make your way through this magnificent underwater world teeming with life. Maintain your suit's pressure resistance as you proceed deeper into the ruins of past civilisations. This hauntingly beautiful aquascape is truly the final frontier for this intrepid last aquanaut. We hope you'll enjoy this incredible adventure — the result of Capcom's signature creativity and design.

Shinsekai: Into the Depths falters from time to time, but it more than makes up for its shortcomings with an original premise, immersive sound design, and expert worldbuilding. If you end up playing this game – and I strongly recommend that you do – just make sure to wear headphones.

Even if you notice its "humble" mobile origins and it's not really very spectacular, Capcom has helmed and interesting view on the metroidvania genre, with nice ideas, a not very explored setting and a style that maybe can result repetitive, but it's fun and will hook up the genre fans. Special mention for the sound: play it with headphones.

Fans of whimsical, artful indie titles will find much to love about Shinsekai Into the Depths, and ardent Metroidvania purists will get a kick out of its aquatic take on the genre. It's not going to be everyone's favorite game for the Nintendo Switch, but I'll be damned if it doesn't top at least one person's list.
