Game launches digitally in N. America on October 22, Europe on October 23
Idea Factory International began streaming a trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of Compile Heart‘s Mary Skelter 2 (Kangokutō Mary Skelter 2) 3D dungeon-crawler game on Tuesday. The trailer previews gameplay footage.
Idea Factory International will release the game digitally in North America on October 22 and in Europe on October 23. The release will also bundle an updated version of the first Mary Skelter: Nightmares game. The release will include Japanese and English audio with English subtitles.
Idea Factory International describes the game:
Mary Skelter 2 evolves the core elements in Mary Skelter: Nightmares to bring to you a world teeming with twists
and turns, topped with a new battle feature where the previous protagonist, Jack, is now a Nightmare. Players
can use his Nightmare powers to defeat enemies, but at a maddening cost. Set in an alternate reality that
includes familiar characters from the first installment, players must relive the torturous dungeon experiences
and find ways to feed an almost insatiable prison. Will you be able to escape this prison and find sanctuary or will
you fall into the clutches of madness?
The Switch version of Mary Skelter 2 shipped in Japan on August 22. Compile Heart released the game in Japan for the PlayStation 4 in July 2018.
Like the first game, the sequel is a collaboration between Dengeki Bunko, Dengeki Playstation, and Compile Heart. Minutes light novel author Yomoji Otono returned to write the story, and Dakei Naname (Death end re;Quest) returned to design the characters. Musical group Earphones worked with composer J. A. Seazer (Revolutionary Girl Utena) to perform the opening theme song “Witchcraft (Theofil no Kiseki).” Earphones worked with RUI & ROLLY to perform the ending theme song “Mirai Dorobō.”
Mary Skelter: Nightmares (Kangokutō Mary Skelter) launched on the PlayStation Vita in Japan in October 2016. Idea Factory International released the game in North America and Europe in September 2017.
