Writer Yomoji Otono, designer Dakei Naname return for game launching on June 28

Compile Heart formally announced the Kangokutō Mary Skelter 2 game during a Dengeki 25th anniversary livestream event on Saturday. The game will launch on the PlayStation 4 on June 28, and pre-orders in Japan started on Saturday.

Like the first game, the sequel is a collaboration between Dengeki Bunko, Dengeki PlayStation, and Compile Heart. Minutes light novel author Yomoji Otono is returning to write the story, and Dakei Naname (Death end re;Quest) is returning to design the characters. Musical group Earphones is working with composer J. A. Seazer (Revolutionary Girl Utena) to perform the opening theme song "Witchcraft (Theofil no Kiseki)." Earphones is working with RUI & ROLLY to perform the ending theme song "Mirai Dorobō."

The game will star:

Rika Abe as Tsuu

Aya Suzaki as Ningyō-hime (The Little Mermaid)

Kōdai Sakai as Jack

Other cast members include:

The game's limited edition retails for 10,476 yen (about US$98), and the standard edition retails for 7,776 yen (about US$73). The limited edition features a package designed by Naname, a 21-song soundtrack CD, a special book, a bath poster, a calendar, a CD-ROM with setting documents, and original PC and smartphone wallpapers.

Those who pre-order the game will receive a bonus fully voiced "academy adventure game."

The game will also include a remake of the original Mary Skelter: Nightmares game.

Compile Heart had teased a new "cute," "never before seen collaboration RPG" through a countdown website earlier this week. The company then streamed a new video for the game on Friday, teasing the game as being related to Mary Skelter.

Mary Skelter: Nightmares (Kangokutō Mary Skelter) launched on the PlayStation Vita in Japan in October 2016. Idea Factory International describes the story:

The Jail suddenly appeared a number of years ago, sinking the city deep into the ground. There, the Jail had power over eerie creatures called "Marchens."
Within the prison was a boy named Jack - living a life of suffering, tortured day in and day out, in a world where all dreams, hopes, peace, and humanity had been lost for as long as the people could remember.
Then one day, amidst the darkness that prevailed, a girl who called herself a member of the Blood Team came and rescued Jack from the prison. This marked the beginning of fate - of Jack's and the Blood Maidens' escape from the Jail...
Jack and the Blood Team will face countless perils in regaining all that has been lost, to finally escape once and for all!

Idea Factory International released the game in North America and Europe in September 2017.

Update: Added more cast members and promo video.
