Publisher Spike Chunsoft has announced Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is releasing this fall on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam). The announcement also came along with a trailer which can be seen below.

Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is an action RPG based on the popular Made in Abyss manga and anime series. The game is divided into two modes. One which allows players to experience the story of the anime while learning the game’s mechanics, and another with an original story supervised by series’ author Akihito Tsukushi. Many characters from Made in Abyss appear with fully voiced cutscenes by the cast of the anime, letting players dive in and experience the dark setting of the series for themselves.

In the recently released trailer, we can see familiar characters like Riko and Reg in action. The game is being developed using Unreal Engine, and the character models seem to be faithful recreations of the originals. The trailer also reveals more disturbing scenes containing bloodshed, a character being stabbed with thorns, vomiting, and something eating a character’s entrails. It also shows off bits of gameplay and the character creator. It looks like Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness is staying true to the series’ cute characters and gory setting.
