Mary Skelter Finale Announced for October Release

Idea Factory International have announced that the third, and final, instalment into the Mary Skelter franchise, which is appropriately titled Mary Skelter Finale, will lauch on 1st October 2021 within Europe and 30th September 2021 within North America for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

The Mary Skelter™ Trilogy was born in 2016 as a collaboration between Compile Heart, Dengeki Bunko, and Dengeki PlayStation® to provide entertainment across three media: games, novels, and magazines. Taken together, they all “connect to one another” as a whole! The trilogy includes Mary Skelter: NightmaresMary Skelter 2, and concludes with Mary Skelter Finale. Mary Skelter: Nightmares was originally released onto the PS Vita, before being ported to Steam, while Mary Skelter 2 was released onto the Nintendo Switch and included Mary Skelter: Nightmares as a bonus. Mary Skelter Finale meanwhile will be available on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch and will retain its dungeon-crawler styled gameplay with visual novel storyline progression.

Key Features:

  • Zap and Explore – “Zap” between 6 groups of characters to dive deeper into their individual stories and relationships. Doing so will also allow you to coordinate puzzle-solving through dungeons filled with unforgivable traps, hidden gimmicks and treasures.
  • Infectious Insects and Cruel Nightmares –  During battle, Nightmare larvae known as “Insectmare” may appear! These pests will latch on to a player’s screen, obstruct the view of battle, disable battle commands, and give players negative condition ailments. Seemingly invincible monsters known as Nightmares still lurch through each dungeon floor, so stay sharp!
  • Dive in the Depths of the Trilogy – Discover more about the Mary Skelter universe with the help of the three light novels that are included digitally in-game! Will Jack, Alice, and the rest of the crew escape the clutches of a living Jail and live happily ever after?
  • Nightmare Déjà vu – Mary Skelter Finale includes all of the event scenes from Mary Skelter: Nightmares and Mary Skelter 2! With the BEFORE STORY option, newcomers can catch up on the story before tackling the series finale, and veterans can sit back and relive the epic story of Mary Skelter!

In addition to the release of Mary Skelter Finale Idea Factory International also confirmed that the visual novel school romantic comedy spin-off Mary Skelter: Locked Up in Love will also be released onto the same platforms. It’s not currently known if this spin-off will be a separate release or included as a bonus with Mary Skelter Finale, but in Japan it did come as a pre-order bonus.

Mary Skelter Finale will be available physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 with Limited Editions being offered on both European and North American Idea Factory storefronts.
