I find this to be a great companion piece to our last Dev Diary, in which producer Pete Fabiano dives into this very subject with more details and a few other tidbits. If you haven’t seen it yet, give it a watch here:

Hope you’ve enjoyed these behind-the-scenes looks at Shinsekai: Into the Depths. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

And just a friendly reminder that the game is available now on Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade. Have fun, and stay safe!
