Idea Factory International Unveils New Mary Skelter 2 Gameplay Details

Ahead of its release next month publisher Idea Factory International have released additional gameplay details for Mary Skelter 2, which launches 23rd October 2019 as a digital download for the Nintendo Switch.

In this case Idea Factory International have released in-depth details about the games ‘Training Modes’ as well as some of the key features players can expect while exploring dungeons and enhancing characters. Further information on all of these features can also be found on the newly updated Mary Skelter 2 website.

Training Modes:

  • Training – Jobs: Each Blood Maiden has the ability to change into 5 different jobs, which can ultimately alter their abilities, the gear they can equip, and their overall appearance. The Jobs available for each Blood Maiden may differ from other Blood Maidens and it’s up to the player to tailor their party to their own liking.  In the case of the main protagonist, Otsuu, she has access to a variety of unique jobs that other Blood Maidens do not have, which allows her to fill in the gaps and weaknesses of a party’s setup. Choose from a variety of Jobs and create your own unique party!
  • Training – Blood Packs: The Blood Maidens can learn special skills from using Blood Packs! Blood Packs can be acquired from Blood Farm harvesting and by finding them in dungeons. Note that you will need to first unlock the Blood Pack’s abilities through “Blood Pack Appraisal”. Once the blood packs are appraised, you can use them on your Blood Maidens to awaken new powers!

Gameplay Features:

  • Blood Farm: Inside dungeons, players can raise Blood Flowers – special flowers that can be grown in Blood Farms and fully bloom into special items. Splash Marchen Blood on your Blood Flowers for a higher chance of getting rarer items.
  • Gifts: Provide Blood Maidens gifts or interior items to increase their affection. Once you reach a certain affection level, a Blood Maiden may give you special items and also unlock special CGs.
  • Blood Devolution: The Blood Devolution system allows players to reset a Blood Maiden’s level to a lower level, so players can level up the character again to gain better stats and skills. While it is beneficial to gain new stats and skills, Blood Devolution can be difficult for players since they will have to relearn skills they’ve used previously.
  • Skill Customization: When Blood Maidens level up, they gain CP that can be used to level up skills and learn new ones. Players can also use the skills learned across different jobs, which allows players to craft a unique Blood Maiden!

Mary Skelter 2 will be released on the 23rd October 2019 as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch, and will also arrive with a 20% launch week discount.
