The enigmatic Abyss is a ruthless and deadly place. Despite the dangers, he still captures the imaginations of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in his mother’s footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she learns that her mother died in the Abyss, but a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive.
