With less than a month left until release, Spike-Chunsoft have shared some more details about Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling Into Darkness, the video game based on the Made in Abyss series. This time, the focus is on the original story and on the Notebook feature.
The “DEEP IN ABYSS” mode features an original story, but many characters from the series do make an appearance, and you will get to meet and interact with them:
In “DEEP IN ABYSS” mode, many characters from Made in Abyss appear as the story unfolds. The main character who becomes a Cave Raider grows with the help of more experienced Cave Raiders from the orphanage Nat, Shiggy, as well as help from Black Whistle Hablog and others. These familiar characters from Made in Abyss appear in the main story or are sometimes shown as having a connection to the protagonist in side quests.
At the start of “DEEP IN ABYSS” Riko and Reg have already set out fro the bottom of the Abyss. We will meet them in the course of our exploration.
As you progress to deeper layers, you may visit facilities where a White Whistle (the highest rank) resides, such as the Seeker Camp in the second layer of the Abyss, and the frontline base in the fifth layer of the Abyss There are also quests that involve the current White Whistles, Ozen and Bondrewd.
As for the Notebook, it’s a handy little thing that allows you to record and consult a wide variety of information: people you’ve met, relics you’ve obtained in the Abyss, primeval creatures encoutered, and more.
The Notebook, which is carried by the main character, records a variety of information, including people met, relics obtained in the Abyss, and primeval creatures encountered. Primeval creatures can be recorded in the notebook by observing them through a monocular. Be cautious while using the monocular, as the field of view is limited, so it is necessary to get somewhat close to observe them.
Finally, here’s the latest set of screenshots for the game:
Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness (Switch) comes out on September 1st in Japan, and September 2nd in Europe and North America.
