'Mary Skelter 2' Comes To PC Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 7, 2022 @ 9:35 a.m. PST

Mary Skelter 2 is a 3D dungeon-crawling RPG that evolves the core elements from the original 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.

What must you sacrifice to escape fate? Find out in this nightmarish dungeon-crawling RPG! The Nightmare continues in Mary Skelter 2! In this first-person dungeon crawler, play as fairy tale-inspired characters called Blood Maidens, each with deeply customizable character-specific classes. Balance between power and madness in turn-based battles with a blood-fueled transformation system and escape a living prison while indestructible Nightmares give chase in real time.

The Jail - a living prison that feeds on the humans trapped within its confines. The Jail appeared a number of years ago with the caving of the city around it.

Now twisted creatures known as Marchens and treacherous Nightmares roam its halls. Otsuu and Little Mermaid are a part of a group of humans known as "Dawn" attempting to survive these horrors. They succeed in saving Alice and a young man named Jack on one mission. However, on their return back to base, Alice goes mad and begins attacking those around her. Alice strikes Jack, who was trying to protect Otsuu and Little Mermaid, knocking them down a chasm. Later, Otsuu and Little Mermaid awaken from the fall only to find Jack on the verge of death...

And so begins our tale of escape from fate, led by a group of girls seeking sanctuary in this mad world, and of the young man who would transform into madness itself - a Nightmare.

Mary Skelter 2 revisits the previous game by including the full remake of Mary Skelter: Nightmares. Improvements made in the remake have been reflected in Mary Skelter 2, for an even more intense experience!

Originally released for the PlayStation Vita in September 2017, in Mary Skelter: Nightmares, powerful Nightmares actively stalk the player as you run through the dungeon—fight back with the dungeons’ gimmicks or the Blood Maidens’ abilities! Using a turn-based battle system, class changes, a blood-powered transformation system, and more, you and your party must solve the dungeons’ mysteries and satisfy the prison’s desires.


Mary Skelter 2, the sequel to Compile Heart’s dark fairy tale dungeon crawler, Mary Skelter, will be coming to PC (Steam) on the 13th of January, priced at $34.99 / €29.99 / £27.99 with a launch discount of 15%, lasting until the 20th of January.

Key Features

  • Don’t Go Chasing Nightmares – When a white haze appears, a Nightmare is near! When spotted by a Nightmare, players enter “Chase Mode,” where the Nightmare will chase you through the Jail in real-time. Escape the Nightmare’s clutches without the help of a mini-map by fleeing the white haze. When caught by a Nightmare’s gaze, players enter battle where they will have to temporarily stun the Nightmare by attacking its weak points. Destroy the Jail’s core and complete the dungeon by defeating the Nightmare!
  • 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.
  • Build Your Own Blood Maiden – When leveling Blood Maidens, players can use CP points to level up skills and learn new ones. Surprise enemies by teaching party members to learn from 5 different jobs beyond their specialties, which can alter a Blood Maidens’ abilities, the gear they can equip, and even their appearance. Mix-and-match skills based on your playing style!
  • Farm for Blood, Reap the Benefits – Use Blood Crystals to plant Blood Flowers, which can be harvested for additional items. Splash Blood Flowers with Marchen blood for an increased chance of getting rarer items when harvested. There are no two same items, so remember to keep harvesting and reap all the benefits!

Currently available on Nintendo Switch, Mary Skelter 2 is coming to PC (Steam) on January 13, 2022.
