Horror dungeon crawler Mary Skelter 2 is making its way to the Nintendo Switch eShop, will include original game free of charge
Idea Factory International today confirmed that their eerie dungeon crawler Mary Skelter 2 will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe. The game will be available exclusively as a digital release via the Nintendo Switch eShop.
As an added bonus, those who purchase this sequel will also receive a retooled version of the original Mary Skelter: Nightmares, which previously released on the PlayStation Vita (read our review here) and PC that promises “revamped systems and balances.”
Check out the game’s key features courtesy of IFI below:
“Don’t Go Chasing Nightmares – Each Jail has 3 desires that players will need to fill up to provide bonuses and satisfy the Jail’s mood. However, if the Jail’s mood worsens, players will notice a white mist, signifying that a Nightmare is near and ready to fight. If the Nightmare gets too close, players will enter “Nightmare Hunt” mode, where the Nightmare will chase you through the dungeon in real-time. Nightmares cannot be defeated unless players destroy the core of the dungeon. Otherwise, players will have to stun a Nightmare to escape!
Jack is a Dull Boy – Jack, the protagonist from Mary Skelter: Nightmares, has now turned into Nightmare Jack. He can still help you along the way, but be wary of his heart rate meter! Once his heart rate reaches a certain limit, he will turn into Ripper Jack, causing him to go berserk. When in Ripper Jack mode, Otsuu also risks going into Blood Skelter mode, which will cause her to go berserk too! With first game, Mary Skelter: Nightmares included, you can play through an alternate world where Jack is the main protagonist.
Go Directly to Jail – Add another degree of difficulty by setting dungeon conditions like “no saves or heals” with the Jail Trial battle system. Successfully completing a Jail Trial provides better item drops and more experience! Want more special bonuses to help you through dungeons? By collecting Jail Pieces, players can add these items to a randomized roulette that can have beneficial results!
Farm for Blood, Reap The Benefits – Use Blood Crystals to plant Blood Flowers, which can be harvested for additional items. In a dungeon area where Blood Flowers are planted, splash them with Marchen Blood by performing a critical hit on enemies during battle to get even rarer items!”
At the time of this writing, publisher Idea Factory International has yet to announce a release window for Mary Skelter 2. However, we’ll be sure to keep you posted as soon as they do.
