Made in Abyss Binary Star Falling into Darkness Game Modes
HELLO ABYSS is a mode where players relive the story of the anime while learning the basic system and how to progress in the game. In this mode, players control main character Riko, and apprentice Cave Raider. Together with the human-like robot Reg, who can handle both combat and exploration, aim for the bottom of the colossal hole known as the Abyss.
Event scenes in the game are fully voiced by the anime cast.
Deep in Abyss
In DEEP IN ABYSS, you control a new Cave Raider, an original character, to challenge the depths of the Abyss, and enjoy an original story supervised by the series author, Akihito Tsukushi. This original character can be customized with different hairstyles and facial features. By completing missions and bringing back relics from the Abyss, players can increase their rank as a Cave Raider and challenge deeper levels of the Abyss.
This mode is based on a single-player exploration, so more careful preparation and action are required to conquer this one.
Introduction to Part of the Game System: Crafting Items and “The Curse of the Abyss”
Exploring the Abyss requires a variety of tools, sufficient food, and more. Items can be crafted from a variety of materials obtained through exploration, and range from tools such as climbing axes and fishing rods to food, medicine, and clothing. In the game, due to weight restrictions for gear, it is also important to procure items locally through crafting, rather than bringing them in from town.
“The Curse of the Abyss” a characteristic element of the original story, is also recreated in the game. It is a phenomenon in which the deeper one goes, their body experiences more severe strains when returning to the surface, causing various physical and mental disorders.
