The upcoming Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness action RPG has released a new systems trailer that goes over its various mechanics and previews the English voice cast.

Deep in Abyss mode, which features an original story and a customizable protagonist called Aki, will have players taking quests from Jiruo and the Cave Raider Guild to progress through the story. Aside from battling enemies and solving puzzles, players will be excavating sites to obtain Relics, which can be sold for both cash and XP, and engaging in activities like fishing and gathering to get items. 

Items and food can be crafted, including the Mail Balloon that is used to save progress. Players will also have to contend with The Curse of the Abyss, which causes hallucinations, bleeding, and other debilitating effects “as they return to base.”

The Hello Abyss mode, which follows the anime’s story and puts players in the boots of Riko, isn’t highlighted much in the trailer (based on how most of the footage seems to feature Aki as the playable character). However, the video description says that it will allow players to “learn the basic system and how to progress in the game.” It seems that Riko will appear in the Deep in Abyss mode as well, as seen in the trailer.

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is set to release on September 2 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. It is based on the ongoing Takeshobo-published Made in Abyss manga by Akihito Tsukushi, who is supervising the game. 

The manga began in 2012, while an anime series was released in 2017 and followed by a two-part compilation movie and the Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul film in 2019 and 2020 respectively. The second season of the anime premiered this month.

Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
