Compile Heart opened a new website for the Switch version of its Mary Skelter 2 (Kangokutō Mary Skelter 2) 3D dungeon-crawler game on Thursday. The site revealed that the game will ship in Japan on August 22. The site is also streaming the Switch version's opening video.
Compile Heart released the game in Japan for the PlayStation 4 last July. Idea Factory International will release the Switch version in the West, and it will also bundle the first Mary Skelter: Nightmares game.
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?
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."
The game also bundled a remake of the original Mary Skelter: Nightmares game, and those who pre-ordered the game received a bonus fully voiced "academy adventure game."
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.
