Compile Heart has updated the official site for Mary Skelter Finale with new details on the game’s systems. There will be a zapping system that lets you swap between multiple parties, for example. It will also have a Before Story mode where you can catch up on story beats in the past games.
Check out the details below:
In Mary Skelter Finale, there are six protagonists. You’ll be able to swap between the six parties in real-time. Each of the parties are exploring the same dungeon, but they don’t know the others are in the same dungeon. By clicking the Zapping button, you can swap parties immediately, then see where they are currently situated and how many events and treasures you’ve collected.
Sometimes, you’ll reach a dead end with one party, and it’ll become impossible to proceed forward unless you help progress with another party. So if you feel like you’re stuck, try another party out. By solving puzzles and gimmicks, you might just open up a door for the stuck group. Swap to each party to experience each story.
When you solve a puzzle, you might see one of the main characters appear on the right, showing that something has changed in their part of the dungeon. You might open up new paths and uncover normally undiscoverable treasure.
Item Dust Box
Each dungeon has item dust boxes, which each group can use, by storing items and equipment inside. You’ll be able to trade items like this between groups. Sometimes, there’ll be paths that can only be opened by doing so.
For those who haven’t played the previous games, Before Story is here for you. You’ll be able to choose from either game, choose which part of the main story you want to rewatch, and see and sub-scenarios, including character-specific events.
Here’s a look at some of the events from both games. That said, these versions of the events are unvoiced, so you’ll still need to play the original games if you want to watch the fully voiced versions.
Additionally, you can choose “Bonus” when choosing a game to view character art, see event illustrations, and listen to music from the previous two games.
