Akihito Tsukushi’s Made in Abyss Manga isn’t just getting a second season, but also its own video game! It will be an action RPG titled Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness. Tsukushi himself is supervising the series, and they will be releasing it via the PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC (Steam).
And despite its art looking like an anime for children, the series received a CERO-Z rating in Japan. This is the highest age rating in Japan, and it means that only people ages 18 and up can play it. Fans have pointed out that in Japan, more infamously violent titles like Dark Souls only got a CERO-D rating, which means that teens can play them in Japan. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V and the newly-released Resident Evil Village also got the CERO-Z rating in Japan as well. Would this mean that the game is much more violent than Dark Souls, and just as violent as Resident Evil Village?
Anyway, Spike Chuunsoft has now released the game’s screenshots, and they don’t look violent… yet.
The game will hit the PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC (Steam) sometime in 2022. They will also release the TV anime’s second season on the same year as well.
The anime previously received an anime movie titled MADE IN ABYSS: Dawn of The Deep. It even premiered here in Singapore last August. The story is set in a world where a gigantic pit/cave remains to be mostly unexplored, and because of this, many creatures aseem to rise up from its depths, while relics and other treasures continue to be found. It follows an orphaned girl named Rico, who wants to be a “Cave Raider”, an adventurer who explores the “Abyss”, just like her mother. One day, as she begins her explorations, she finds a young boy, who actually happens to be a robot.
