Mary Skelter: Nightmares – Blood Meter System and Character Spotlight #2

Share

Mary Skelter: Nightmares hits the PlayStation Vita system this September 19 (NA) and September 22 (EU)! The game will receive a digital and a physical release and will be compatible with the PlayStation TV. In this update, we’ll go over Massacre mode and Blood Skelter mode, and introduce you to some more Blood Maidens.

About Massacre Mode and Blood Skelter Mode
Jack’s party of Blood Maidens, prisoners who possess the power to fight Marchens, overcome the Jail’s obstacles thanks to their special blood-activated abilities!

Blood Maidens have two meters a Blood Meter and a Corruption Meter. Overkills trigger blood splatter which fills up the Blood Meter. Once it’s full, she’ll enter Massacre mode, which strengthens her power during battle!

But be careful, massive damage to the party and KO’s fill the Corruption Meter. A full Corruption Meter causes the Blood Maiden to lose control… And then she’ll enter Blood Skelter mode. In this powerful berserk mode, she will indiscriminately attack enemies and allies! Only Jack’s Mary Gun can stop them.

Strategically balancing Massacre mode, Blood Skelter mode, and watching the meters is the key to victory!

Who are the Blood Maidens? Get acquainted with this week’s Character Spotlight.

THUMBELINA
The oldest of the three Blood Maiden sisters. She pushes Jack around and is so prideful that she can’t even compliment him.

SNOW WHITE
The second oldest of the three sisters. She has a gentle personality and is kind to Jack. Despite her best intentions, she ends up complicating things. She’s afraid of looking into mirrors.

SLEEPING BEAUTY
The youngest of the three sisters. She’s comforting to Jack when he feels down. She’s almost always sleepy, so she expresses most opinions with a simple nod or by shaking her head.

KAGUYA
A lazy Blood Maiden who spends most of her time in her room. She uses her special ride, Bamboo 1, to move around or to fight. It takes a while for her to open up to Jack.

Story
The Jail suddenly appeared a number of years ago, sinking the city deep into the ground. There, the Jail had power over eerie creatures called “Marchens.”

Within the prison was a boy named Jack – living a life of suffering, tortured day in and day out, in a world where all dreams, hopes, peace, and humanity had been lost for as long as the people could remember.

Then one day, amidst the darkness that prevailed, a girl who called herself a member of the Blood Team came and rescued Jack from the prison. This marked the beginning of fate – of Jack’s and the Blood Maidens’ escape from the Jail…

Jack and the Blood Team will face countless perils in regaining all that has been lost, to finally escape once and for all!
