Idea Factory International announced that its dungeon-crarwling RPG Mary Skelter: Nightmares will release on the 19th of September in North America and on the 22nd of September in Europe. Along with the release date, the publisher released a new trailer and screenshots that show off the terrors, battles, and prisoners within the living Jail.
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!
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-licking transform system, and more, you and your party must solve the dungeons' mysteries and satisfy the prison's desires.
- Walking Nightmares The dungeon-crawling RPG genre gets a twist when special enemies can chase you through the dungeons! Lay traps to make your escape, or try to take them down!
- Blood-drenched Transformations! Characters can transform with stronger stats and extra skills, but if they fight too much they may enter Blood Skelter Mode, where they go completely berserk!
- Everyone's got a Job Strategize your dungeon battles by assigning different classes to your characters, unlocking new skills, stats, and character portraits!
Mary Skelter: Nightmares will be available as a digital and a physical release on PS Vita, and it's compatible with the PlayStation TV.
