on August 2, 2017 4:22 PM

Idea Factory International announced that the dungeon crawling RPG Mary Skelter: Nightmares will launch for PlayStation Vita on September 19 in North America and September 22 in Europe.

To celebrate the announcement, the publisher has launched a new trailer showing gameplay and battle systems. If you’d like to learn more about the battle system, DualShockers had the chance to sit down with the publisher to talk about the game’s dungeon crawling and other unique systems

Mary Skelter: Nightmares has players assume the role of Jack, who lives in a world full of suffering and torture, a living jail. However, one day a member of the “Blood Team” breaks in and rescues Jack in hopes that he assist the other Blood Maidens.

The game features a turn-based battle system where players will be able to choose an action for Jack (who can’t attack, but he can command or heal) and the gain control over the Blood Maidens as they fight against hordes of monsters. The girls will be able to change their costumes, lick blood off of other party members, transform, and more.

Additionally, there is a touching mini-game which reveals plenty of skin, but I’m sure it leaves the girls in a better shape than before.

The publisher details key features:

  • Walking Nightmares The dungeon-crawling RPG genre gets a twist when special enemies can chase you through the dungeons! Lay traps to make your escape, or try to take them down!
  • Blood-drenched Transformations! Characters can transform with stronger stats and extra skills, but if they fight too much they may enter Blood Skelter Mode, where they go completely berserk!
  • Everyone’s got a Job Strategize your dungeon battles by assigning different classes to your characters, unlocking new skills, stats, and character portraits!

Below you can check out a new gameplay trailer as well as some screenshots showing the battlesystem:
