The PS Vita dungeon JRPG Mary Skelter: Nightmares is finally launching on PC this week thanks to a publishing initiative by Ghostlight Games.

Today Ghostlight announced the release date of the PC port of Compile Heart’s dungeon-crawling JRPG Kamigokuto: Mary Skelter or Mary Skelter: Nightmares.

The game was originally released for PS Vita back in 2017, so it’s nice to get a chance to play it on PC now that Vita doesn’t mean Life anymore.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can check out our review, and read a few bullet points below.

“Enter the world of Mary Skelter: Nightmares – a darkly sinister dungeon-crawling RPG set in a mysterious tower inspired by twisted fairy tales. Guide your hero Jack and a band of powerful Blood Maidens, the only heroes capable of cutting a path through a living dungeon inhabited by Nightmares – near unstoppable creatures that unceasingly pursue you through fiendishly constructed labyrinths. Fight through legions of “Marchens” using your Blood Maidens’ unique powers and the blood of your enemies to exploit weaknesses, buff your skills and enter a powerful ‘Massacre’ mode to gain the edge in combat. As the Blood Maidens cut through their enemies only Jack’s blood and the Mary Gun can hope to control the Blood Maidens’ violent heroics. A bloody, dungeoneering challenge awaits!”

  • Customize your characters with 20+ jobs, each with their own unique skillset and stats!
  • Challenging Nightmares chase you through the dungeons – use special abilities to lay traps and gain the advantage before battle! Some say there are giant Nightmares so large they span multiple floors…
  • Fill your blood meter to transform and deal more damage in the powerful Massacre mode, or reduce it to heal the party and receive stat boosts!
  • Explore the twists and turns of the Jail and satisfy its bloody curdling desires to earn helpful Jail Bonuses in your quest to escape!

We also got the system requirements, which are of course fairly modest.
