Idea Factory International has revealed that Mary Skelter 2 will receive a release for Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe.
The game aims to expand the core elements of PS Vita titles Mary Skelter: Nightmares brings "a world full of twists" to Switch. It includes a brand new combat feature, in which the former protagonist Jack is now a nightmare to defeat enemies, but at a high price.
Expect to find many more "agonizing" dungeon experiences and familiar faces in the first game, and all the features listed below (screenshots are from the Japanese PS4 version):
Do not hunt for nightmares ̵1; Each prison has 3 wishes players must fulfill. Provide bonuses and satisfy the mood of the prison. However, as the mood in the prison worsens, players will notice a white haze that indicates a nightmare is nearby and ready to fight. When the nightmare comes too close, players switch to the Nightmare Hunt mode, where the Nightmare chases you through the dungeon in real time. Nightmares can only be defeated if players destroy the core of the dungeon. Otherwise, players must numb a nightmare to escape!
Jack is a boring boy – Jack, the protagonist of Mary Skelter: Nightmares has now become the Nightmare Jack. He can still help you along the way, but be careful with his heart rate monitor! Once his heart rate reaches a certain limit, he transforms into Ripper Jack, which makes him angry. In Ripper Jack mode, Otsuu also risks switching to Blood Skelter mode, which also makes her angry! Included with the first game, Mary Skelter: Nightmares you can play through an alternate world in which Jack is the main protagonist.
Straight to Prison – Add another difficulty level by using the Prison Attack Combat System to set dungeon conditions such as "No Rescues or Healings." Successfully completing a prison exam provides better drop of subject and more experience! Want more special bonuses to help you through dungeons? By collecting jigsaw pieces, players can add these items to a random roulette game that can achieve beneficial results. In a dungeon where blood flowers are planted, you can spray them with fairytale blood by making a critical hit on enemies in combat to get even rarer items!
If you're new to the series, do not worry. Mary Skelter 2 will be launched with a reworked version of the first included game that will help you to understand all of Mary Skelter's needs. We will look for a release date.
