Mary Skelter 2 details more systems, Mary Skelter: Nightmares remake

New trailer focuses on "Purging Corruption."

Compile Heart has updated the official Japanese website for Mary Skelter 2 with new information and screenshots introducing the Transfused Blood system, skill creation, Blood Devolution, purging corruption, and the remake of the original Mary Skelter: Nightmares included with the game, as well as a new trailer focused on purging corruption.

Get the details below.

■ System

◆ Growth: Transfused Blood System

In addition to standard skills, which are acquired through skill creation, there are also “Transfused Blood Skills” that the Blood Maidens can acquire by injecting “Transfused Blood” into their bodies. While Transfused Blood is acquired by means such as “Blood Farming” and “gathering” in dungeons, Transfused Blood is a special item that cannot be injected unless appraised once. By getting Transfused Blood appraised, you can inject the Blood Maidens with even more power.

◆ Growth: Skill Creation

The skills learned by the Blood Maidens can be chosen by the player. The Blood Maidens gain CP as they level, and these points are used to level up skills and learn new ones.

You can also use the skills you’ve learned across different jobs, effectively crafting your own Blood Maiden. For example, you can create a Paladin with powerful attacks, or a Blood Witch that can use healing magic. The possibilities are endless.

◆ Growth: Blood Devolution

You can reset a Blood Maiden’s level through Blood Devolution so that you can train her again. The level you want to drop down to can be chosen by the player. Depending on the level you choose, you will gain bonus CP, which can be used to boost stats or learn skills. Create the ultimate Blood Maiden with Blood Devolution.

◆ Base: Purging Corruption

The harshness of battle slowly corrupts the minds of the Blood Maidens. If this continues, they will enter Blood Skelter mode and attack anything around them, even their allies. In order to purge the Blood Maiden, you will need to rub the Corruption from her body. If the purge is successful, the Corruption will be lifted, and she’ll gain stat boosts and resistance to future Corruption.
