Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling Into Darkness' 2nd September release date is fast approaching, and today we got a new trailer detailing its various mechanics, which are the bedrock of the game.

For the uninitiated, Made in Abyss is based on an anime of the same name, in which you play as a Cave Raider, adventurers who delve into the mysterious Abyss (a deep and dangerous underground passage) in search of relics from bygone civilizations.

The gameplay overview trailer teaches us the basics of exploration, in a manner that will be immediately recognizable to fans of the Monster Hunter franchise. You undertake exploration or hunting quests, equip yourself for the journey, and do your best to get back out alive. Don't be fooled by the cutesy visuals, Made in Abyss is dark as hell (excuse the pun), and you will need to manage the trauma and physical anguish your character endures.
