Mary Skelter: Nightmares is an intriguing PS Vita release that’s hurtling toward players on September 19, and it sounds positively freaky. But freaky in a good way, you see, as you’re tasked with escaping from some creepy living “Jail” that not only was responsible for sinking an entire city, but also attacking the people who lived there.
The Jail being alive and spawning creatures called Marchens just wasn’t enough, though. It also held a young boy who was being tortured every single day named Jack, until one day a member of a group called the Blood Team came to save him. The titular Mary, a part of Blood Team, assisted by other Blood Maidens, join up to face the evils of the Jail and escape with their lives. Sounds like some kind of trippy twist on normal dungeon crawling.
It’s certainly a unique-looking game with a special job system, as the trailer demonstrates, character transformations, and opportunities for you to lay traps and plan your escape. Idea Factory’s latest is going to be big on creative approaches, it seems. If you’re interested in checking it out, have a gander at the new trailer and pick it up this September.
