Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness details

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is a single player 3D action RPG, coming worldwide in 2022. A physical version will also be published in Europe by Numskull Games.

The Made in Abyss Action RPG will include both a Story mode retracing the anime, and a brand new original story written for the occasion, and supervised by original mangaka Akihito Tsukushi. The game will be fully voiced, with the same seiyuu (voice actors and actresses) as in the anime.

The original story of MIAbyss Binary Star Falling into Darkness takes place several days after Riko and Reg depart for the Abyss, focusing on a nameless Cave Raider. Multiple screenshots were released as well. A teaser site was opened.

Why is Made in Abyss rated 18+

Moreover, the Japanese press release for the Made in Abyss action RPG specifies the game has been rated Cero Z, 18 +. That’s an obvious rating if you know about the series.

If you’ve never seen or read Made in Abyss, the series ends up becoming incredibly dark and disturbing, with body horror and tragic elements. I won’t say too much because spoiling it would be ruining the fun. Let’s just say to avoid spoilers that it’s a typical example of how you shouldn’t judge Japanese media by its cover. And you’re missing out if you’re still thinking anime or something that looks cute is necessarily for kids. On the opposite, you’re also missing out if you believe all kids oriented anime are shallow and only made to sell toys.
