Made in Abyss Game Coming To Switch, PS4 and Steam Fall 2022
Are you a fan of cute characters in dark worlds? Made In Abyss Binary Star Falling into Darkness is an upcoming video game based on the manga/anime by Akihito Takushi. Spike Chunsoft developed Made In Abyss. This fall, it will be available for the Switch, PS4, Steam, and Steam.
Riko is an orphan who lives in the Abyss, a town around the pit perimeter. Made In Abyss is a manga and anime-inspired by old-school PC games such as Wizardry or tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons. The characters travel down to a seemingly endless dungeon looking for treasure. However, there is a problem. The Curse of the Abyss can make it difficult to return to the surface after descending to the Earth.
Although it’s a simple concept, the series has received a lot of praise. Crunchyroll awarded it Best Anime in the 2018 Anime Awards. The original manga was also nominated for the 11th Annual Manga Taisho Awards. People can’t get enough of these children fighting monsters in a mysterious, Buddhist-inspired dungeon.
What about the game? Binary Star Falls into Darkness looks like a dungeon crawler in which players travel into the Abyss to fight monsters and retrieve relics. It’s unusual for an anime-based game that you won’t be playing as the main characters. Instead, you will create your own character and battle alongside familiar faces as a rookie Cave Raider.
Tsukushi wrote the original story, and it looks like the game will keep the tone of the source material. Despite the cutesy look, the game is rated M for Violence and Blood and Gore. The trailer features a monster eating the flesh of a fallen soldier, while another scene shows the main character spiking blood.
Made In Abyss seems to have the same style as many anime adaptations. A lot of effort has been put into the visual style of these characters while the world they explore looks… well, rough. Fans of the series may not care that much.
We don’t know when Made In Abyss will be released, but it is expected to arrive sometime in the fall. Spike Chunsoft will release both standard and collector’s edition versions. The latter includes a “Cave-Raiding Notebook” and a 24×36″ cloth poster.
There are many anime video game adaptations. Some are just licensed cash-ins, while others capture the spirit of original works. I don’t know much about Made In Abyss, but I love the idea of creating your own character and playing in the world. This feature made Dragon Ball Xenoverse a dream come true. Made In Abyss will be the same for Tsukushi’s dark dungeon crawler.
