“I supervised this game. I requested a lot, like ‘make Ozen and Bondrewd look tougher, make them cooler, make these creatures more creature-like,’ without really thinking about how much work it would be for the developers,” Tsukushi explains.
“I can’t wait to see all these powerful and cool characters beat up your original Cave Raiders. And I’m looking forward to the release too! I’ll play it when it comes out. The second season of the Made in Abyss anime will be coming out around the same time. At long last, the journey into the sixth layer, the land of no return, will begin. I hope you’re excited to see it animated. I know I am! I’ll keep working hard on the manga, so please read that too!”
The game has been based on the popular fantasy manga series, and will let you relive the experience of the anime in the “Hello Abyss” story mode, while also being able to explore an original story in the “Deep In Abyss” mode – which has been supervised by Tsukushi.
That story will take place many days after Riko and Reg depart for the Abyss, which is the world’s sole remaining, unconquered chasm and the stage for where many adventures are born and sometimes disappear. With everyone aiming to descend to the depths of the netherworld, you will learn about a nameless Cave Raider.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Take the Dive of Your Life: Made in Abyss, the breathtaking manga and anime series by Akihito Tsukushi, is getting its first-ever video game adaptation!
- Experience the Anime’s Story: The story begins with Riko and Reg’s meeting in the first episode of season one. This marks the start of their great adventure, and together they travel to Seeker Camp in the second layer of the Abyss. Experience the awesome power of the Curse of the Abyss, as well as the astonishing, legendary entities known as primeval creatures. Prepare to glimpse the world of Riko and her friends.
- Experience a Brand-New Story: Another story takes place many days after Riko and Reg depart for the Abyss. The world’s sole remaining, unconquered chasm, the Abyss, is the stage where many adventures are born…and disappear. Those who appear in these stories are mesmerized by the power of the Abyss and aim for the bottom of the netherworld. The story about to be told is of the adventures of a nameless Cave Raider in the Abyss.
