posted on by Alex Mateo
Idea Factory International announced on Wednesday that it will release the Nintendo Switch version of Compile Heart's Mary Skelter 2 (Kangokutō Mary Skelter 2) 3D dungeon-crawler 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?
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.
