When you're going cave diving, what do you need? A notebook? We're not sure about that! But the upcoming Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness wants you to bring one with you.

Well, not in real life, but there's a key mechanic in the action RPG, and it's not really for Abyss diving. It's for recording details of the people you meet, the creatures you encounter, and the relics you uncover.

And those creatures are pretty dangerous! Known as 'Primeval Creatures', these need to be observed through a monocular in order to get information on them. But this limits your view, so you have to get close to the creature without being spotted.

While you're progressing through the Abyss, you'll also come across facilities that have been built. You might meet the highest rank, White Whistle, down there. Or maybe find the Seeker Camp, or the frontline base. You can also pick up quests as you descend.

Publisher Spike Chunsoft has also shown off a bunch of new screenshots for the game, detailing all of these little tidbits. One Primeval creature is called a corpse-weeper, which is pretty terrifying for a bird.

If you're eager to become a Cave Raider, you've got just under a month to wait! Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness launches on the Switch on 2nd September.

Will you be braving the Abyss to find some Primeval creatures? How are you finding Season 2 of the show? Let us know!
