Mary Skelter 2 coming to Steam in 2022
Ghostlight has officially announced that they will publish Mary Skelter 2 on PC. However, no release window for the game was given, other than that it will launch in 2022.
A Steam store page has appeared for dungeon crawler RPG Mary Skelter 2, published by Ghostlight. Details such as price or release date are not yet available.
While the PC port has not technically been announced yet, it looks like an official announcement should come very soon, which should offer more information about the release. Ghostlight has been teasing a JRPG port for quite a while now, and considering Ghostlight had previously published a PC port of the original Mary Skelter: Nightmares, this announcement is not all-too surprising.
Mary Skelter 2 originally released for PlayStation 4 in Japan in July 2018, followed by a Japanese release on Nintendo Switch in August 2019. An English version of the game released for Nintendo Switch in October 2019.
The store page description and screenshots for Mary Skelter 2 can be found below. A sequel, Mary Skelter: Finale, released for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch a few months ago, and you can check out our review.
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 the tale of escaping 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 remake of Mary Skelter: Nightmares. Improvements made in the remake have been reflected in Mary Skelter 2, for an even more intense experience.
(Of course, you can enjoy Mary Skelter 2 on its own.)
