Spike Chunsoft has announced a brand new game for PS4, Switch and PC! The new title is called Made In Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness and will be a 3D Action RPG video game adaptation of the anime series, which is pretty dope! The game will feature an entirely original story that takes place after the characters Riko and Reg leave for the abyss. The game is about “the adventures of a nameless Cave Raider” within.
The announcement partially read,”In the 3D Action RPG, Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness, the player descends into the world of the Abyss and grows through their experience in its depths. The player can relive the experience of the anime in story mode as well as explore an original story supervised by the series author, Akihito Tsukushi. Fans are sure to enjoy the dark fantasy elements that remain true to the unique flavor of the original work. Many characters from Made in Abyss appear as well, and event scenes are fully voiced by the cast from the anime.”
We will be releasing a 3D Action RPG based on the popular manga Made in Abyss, which also announced a 2nd season for its anime today. Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness will be coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in 2022.https://t.co/Nn6DQq4dbL pic.twitter.com/hdx87QID6c

So not only will the game have an original story supervised by the creator, but will also feature the voicework of the cast who voices the characters. This is great news for fans of the series as it will lend an air of authenticity to the entire thing. Let’s not forget that this series is very well suited for a 3D Action RPG, so this game has the potential to be really good. On the other hand, anime games are often mediocre. Let’s hope that’s not the case here.
Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is set to release in 2022 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam
