The following is Spike Chunsoft’s description of the game via their website:
In the 3D Action RPG, Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness, the player descends into the world of the Abyss and grows through their experience in its depths. The player can relive the experience of the anime in story mode as well as explore an original story supervised by the series author, Akihito Tsukushi.

Made in Abyss was originally a fantasy manga created in 2012 that is still ongoing to this day. It later went on to become an anime television series, its first season airing in 2017. Made in Abyss also recently announced on Twitter that a second season is on the way in 2022. The story follows an adventurous young girl named Riko and a mysterious robot boy Reg as they embark on a perilous journey into the depths of the Abyss in search of Riko’s long-lost mother. The combination of a dark yet impactful storyline, gentle art style, and sublime soundtrack created a masterpiece that captured the hearts of many fans.
