During a Dengeki Game Fes 2018 livestream, Compile Heart announced Mary Skelter 2 [official English title yet to be determined] for PlayStation 4. This is a follow up to the 2016 PlayStation Vita dungeon crawler and is set to release on June 28. You can find the official website here.
Teaser and Opening Movie
In addition, the sequel includes a PS4 "remake" of the original game in the package. Several gameplay balance changes have been made to both the new version of the original game and the sequel. Such adjustments include:
- A smaller, more usable dungeon map.
- An automatic function added to Jail Roulette, as well as adjusted awards
- Better debugging and balance
- Sorting added to the warehouse, as well as functionality to mark items needed for quests
- Improved quest system
A dummy package leaked a few weeks ago at Japanese retailers, preempting this announcement. Here's the package overview, via Gematsu:
Jail—an impregnable human asylum called a “living prison.”
This prison, which was suddenly born several decades ago, was controlled by monsters called “Marchens” and mad beings that led them called “Nightmares.”
Tsuu and The Little Mermaid, members of an organization called “Dawn” whose purpose is to escape from that Jail, successfully rescue new ally Alice, who was captured, and a boy named Jack, who she was with.
Tsuu headed to the city with Alice and Jack, but in the midst of that, Alice’s body was dyed in madness and started swinging her blade indiscriminately.
Alice’s blade attacked Tsuu, the Little Mermaid, and Jack, who tried to protect Tsuu, and the three fell down below a cliff.
Before the eyes of the princess who woke up below the cliff was Jack, who was seemingly about to die—.
Tsuu, The Little Mermaid, and Jack—this is the story of girls that spin blood and a boy that became a nightmare in attempts to break free from fate.
