Recently, Mary Skelter 2 made the jump to Nintendo Switch as a digital-only title. It received a limited physical version thanks to Limited Run Games, who opened pre-orders on November 26, 2019. LRG even included both Mary Skelter: Nightmares and Mary Skelter 2 on the same catridge, letting players enjoy twice as much fun with the franchise. Now, it looks like Mary Skelter will be getting another addition to the franchise on multple platforms.
Mary Skelter Finale aims to be the final game in the franchise. Here’s a quote, taken from the prologue:
One fight to decide the end of this jailbreak drama. When a lonely fighting girl gets a “name”, that girl’s hope and joy will manifest in one last match. The curtain is about to rise on this finale.
Fans of the franchise can expect to see the same systems featured in the previous releases. However, there’s also a few new elements. This includes the new “Zapping System”, which lets gameplay progress in real-time while you switch between different protagonists. Also, players will be able to mix new and old characters together as they dungeon dive and explore the game.
Additionally, Mary Skelter Finale will feature the previous titles Mary Skelter and Mary Skelter 2, along with Love Prison Tower: Mary Skelter in an adventure visual novel story. This new edition will also feature a sequel visual novel to Love Prison Tower: Mary Skelter, entitled Love Prison Tower: Mary Skelter – True Ending as a pre-order bonus. Players who pre-order any edition of the game will also receive a special swimsuit event for True End too.
