    They also announced a new Neptunia game (looks like a SAO-style Vert spin-off?) - they haven't stated a platform yet, but I'd imagine it'll be on Vita given that all the other spin-offs have been.

    More info from gematsu:

    Mary Skelter is set in Japan. In September 1999, a living prison, Jail, suddenly appeared, and submerged a great city 666 meters underground, and went on developing. As a result of Jail’s birth came the appearance of monsters known as “Marchen,” who began seizing and imprisoning humans. The protagonist and heroine were born several decades after this incident and aim to escape the jail in which they were confined.

    The living jail possess three great desires by which it grows: appetite, sexual desire, and the desire for sleep. To escape above ground, you must grow the jail more than 666 meters.

    The town is imprisoned in jail, and several girls are born after the humans are imprisoned by the Marchen. For some reason, these girls react to the Marchen’s blood and their physical abilities greatly increase, and they form the “Chishiki Girls Squad” in order to plan a jailbreak. This group consists of Akazuki (Little Red Riding Hood), Oyayubihime (Thumbelina), Shirayukihime (Snow White), Nemurihime (Sleeping Beauty), and so on—all members that don the name of fairy-tale heroines.

    Here are the currently revealed characters:
    • Jack – The protagonist. He’s a little timid, but he takes action when the situation calls for it.
    • Alice (voiced by Sumire Uesaka) – A girl imprisoned together with Jack. The two provide each other mutual support.
    • Akazukin (Little Red Riding Hood) – An older sister-type who breaks Jack and Alice out of Prison. She saves them because they both possess a special power.
    The pink blood that Marchen bleed in battle are involved with the game’s battles, dungeons, and training. In dungeons, there are puzzle-solving elements that involve using items like bows and arrows, bombs, and such. One particularly panic-inducing part of exploring dungeons is when the Merchen boss, “Nightmare,” appears. Nightmare disregards the general ‘one turn, one move’ rule and chases you in real time.

    More information is due out in the March 31 issue of Dengeki PlayStation.

    Sounds really cool and I've always loved features where one of the bosses chase you real time. Gives that sudden boost of adrenaline.

    Compile Heart has opened the official website for Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter, its new PS Vita dungeon RPG in collaboration with Dengeki PlayStation and Dengeki Bunko, providing first details and screenshots of the upcoming title.

    Get the information below.

    ■ Setting

    [​IMG]

    Jail, known as a “living prison,” is an impenetrable human asylum.

    Many decades ago, a city suddenly collapsed and a prison controlled by ominous creatures called “Marchen” was born.

    As an inmate of Jail, a boy named Jack merely endured his life, deprived of all humanity and being tortured. He has long forgotten when it all started and gave up on his hopes and dreams.

    As an inmate of Jail, a boy named Jack, who had forgotten how long it’s been since it all started, and whose hopes and dreams, peace of mind, and humanity were stolen from him, while being tortured day and night, had just been living.

    But one day after being shut out from all light, a group known as the “Chishiki Girls Squad” rescues Jack from prison.

    It was the fated start of Jack and the Chishiki Girls’ jailbreak attempt—

    In order to take back everything that was stolen from them, Jack and the Chishiki Girls Squad carry out a jailbreak from the impenetrable Jail.

    ■ Characters

    Jack (voiced by ???)


    [​IMG]




    The protagonist. A boy who spends his days as an inmate in Jail. He’s a little timid, but also has a strong side. He is a kind-hearted soul who occasionally tries to protect his friends by throwing his own life on the line.

    He’s taken by Akazukin, who came to save Alice, to break out of jail. As support for the “Chishiki Girls Squad,” girls who fight while wounded and wish to become women of power, they attempt to escape Jail.

    Although, he’ll later also obtain a blood-type (Chishiki) ability and be discovered a “Chishiki Boy”…


    Alice (voiced by Sumire Uesaka)


    [​IMG]


    A girl who grew up with Jack from an early age. She was living as an inmate detained by the Marchen together with Jack.

    She was confirmed to be a “Chishiki Girl” when she was saved by Akazukin, and fully demonstrates that power to break out of Jail. While she can usually judge things calmly, and is usually diligent and cool, she lays bare her emotions when it comes to Jack.


    Akazukin (Little Red Riding Hood) (voiced by ???)


    [​IMG]


    A sometimes exciting, sometimes rough, hot-blooded girl who gallops into the prison. She likes that Jack has guts and enjoys having something to manipulate.

    She is said to be the first-discovered “Chishiki Girl” and though rough, acts as an older-sister type that watches over the girls. However, her hot-blooded instincts can sometimes cause a panic.

    Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter is due out for PS Vita in Japan in 2016 for 7,344 yen via retail and 6,480 yen via download. A limited edition will also be available for 9,504 yen.

    Compile Heart has updated the official website for PS Vita dungeon RPG Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter with details on the game’s world and two new characters.

    Get the information below.

    ■ World

    Summary


    [​IMG]


    The prison itself is a life-form known as “Jail.”

    A boy named Jack and his childhood friend, a girl named Alice, were being inexplicably and severely tortured as prisoners by way of ominous prison guards known as “Marchen.”

    It was maddening each day, but through mutual care and comfort they kept their sanity, and vowed by all means to escape from this hell of a jail.

    As if to ridicule their vow, their “punishment” intensified each day. However, on the day their bodies and minds had reached their limit and they were about to give everything up, a girl holding a giant pair of scissors dripping with pink blood appeared.

    “I’ve come to scout you!”

    ■ Characters

    Kaguyahime (Princess Kaguya) (voiced by ???)

    [​IMG]



    A girl who is always holed up in her room, who won’t fight unless her demands are satisfied.

    She is extremely lazy, and rides a big vehicle called “Bamboo No. 1” both when she moves and fights, rarely moving her body on her own.

    When she first met Jack, she thought of him as a convenient errand boy who will go out to get the things she wants, but as they overcome all sorts of difficulties together, her heart will gradually opens up to him.

    She may or may not have the ability to release the “Truant Seven Tools” from the hem of her skirt…

    Rapunzel (voiced by ???)

    [​IMG]



    The youngest of the girls, who has very long blond hair. At first, she mistakes Jack as the emergency rations and attempts to gnaw him, but as he cares for her by feeding and playing with her, they gradually become attached to one another.

    Rapunzel likes to sleep on Nemurihime’s (Sleeping Beauty’s) chest and is often witnessed napping with her.


    Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter will launch for PS Vita in Japan on October 13.

    Looks dark and grim, really intriguing. Liking the looks of all the characters, even the guy looks likable. Too bad it's probably going to be another Tartarus/Tower of Babel crawl to the top...or maybe I'm wrong. As long as there is side events to do and not just straight up DC I can probably get into it though.

    Mary Skelter details Nightmare Battles

    Compile Heart has updated the official website for Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter, its upcoming PS Vita dungeon RPG about escaping a living prison, with information on the game’s “Nightmare Battles.”

    Get the details below.

    The Game of Tag with the Feared “Nightmares” Begins



    [​IMG]



    To annihilate the enemies that infiltrate the prison, keepers of fear known as “Nightmares” wander the prison walls (dungeons) in real time, and you won’t know from where and when they’ll approach…

    Nightmares wear a “Nightmare Space” that cover their surrounding dozen meters in darkness. If you’re swallowed into the darkness, your field of vision will fail and you’ll enter total darkness, and the Nightmare will sprint towards you to attack.

    Is this a do-or-die escape drama? Or a sink-or-swim battle? The choice is yours…

    Dye the Dungeons in Pink Blood


    [​IMG]

    In addition to “Nightmares,” there are evil monsters called “Marchen” lurking in the dungeons.

    By attacking the Nightmare and Marchen’s weak points, or defeating them with overkill, a large quantity of blood will spray from their bodies.

    This blood will rain down on the dungeon and act as a guidepost as it illuminates the “Nightmare Spaces” covered in darkness.

    Booking Battles


    [​IMG]


    The Marchen that appear while you’re being chased by a Nightmare trigger a “Booking Battle.”

    During these battles, Nightmares will draw closer to you at every moment. You’ll need to overcome the sense of tension from these battles and use your calm judgment and wit to instantly kill the Marchen.

    If you missed them, previous updates detailed characters Princess Kaguya and Rapunzel, Thumbelina, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty, as well as the setting, and characters Jack, Alice, and Little Red Riding Hood.

    Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter will launch for PS Vita in Japan on October 13.

    So dark and corrupted. Seems pretty immersive these screenshots look promising. Hopefully there is sufficient battle voices. Have to hear my girls fighting with all their might out loud! :D

    Compile Heart has updated the official website for Divine Prison Tower: Mary Skelter with a new trailer, screenshots, and information.

    The PS Vita dungeon RPG is due out in Japan on October 13.



    ■ Blood Skelter Mode



    [​IMG]


    Whenever the girls of the Chishiki Girls Squad take heavy damage or become unable to fight and the like in battle, their spirits will become uneasy and they’ll accumulate “impurity.”

    When impurity is accumulated, rather than Genocide Mode, which is triggered by the girl continually getting sprayed with blood, the girl will be swallowed by madness and enter “Blood Skelter Mode.”




    [​IMG]


    In this state, the character does not listen to the player’s instructions. The girl has gone mad and will exert her power regardless of whether it’s against friend or foe. To return her to her original state, you need the power of the Mary Gun.

    Whether or not this transformation is “good” or “evil” is a judgment best left to the player.

    ■ The Protagonist in Battle

    Mary Gun


    [​IMG]


    In battle, Jack uses the “Mary Gun,” which shoots his own blood, to support the Chishiki Girls.

    The blood shot at the Chishiki Girls will purify the impurity that builds up on their bodies. As you develop the Mary Gun, it will prove more advantageous in battle with increased abilities.

    Jack’s blood decreases each time you use the Mary Gun. If you try to use the gun when you’re low on blood, you may end up “fainting.” If you feel like you’re low on blood, you can try to increase your amount of blood with Jack’s “Blood Formation” command.

    Fainting


    [​IMG]


    In addition to the Mary Gun, Jack can also support the Chishiki Girls by acting as their shield. However, this action will put Jack into a “fainted” state.

    In the fainted state, Jack can’t take action for a set amount of turns, and if Jack faints “a specific number of times” in battle, he won’t be able to recover for remainder of that fight.

    ■ The Big Three Desires

    In Detail

    In order to grow, the living prison known as “Jail” is always hungry for the big three desires of “appetite,” “sexual desire,” and “desire to sleep.”

    You can satisfy these desires in both battle and while exploring dungeons, and by satisfying a desire to the maximum amount, you can obtain a whimsical “Jail Bonus” from the prison.

    Whether you satisfy or do not satisfy the big three desires is up to you. However, if you use these desires skillfully, you can discover new paths and overturn the course of battle.

    —Appetite


    [​IMG]


    You can satisfy appetite with the blood of Marchen. During battle, a large amount of blood will spurt out from the enemy Marchen.

    —Sexual Desire


    [​IMG]


    In dungeons, you’ll find “Emotion Points”—Jail’s erogenous zones—that you can stimulate sexually by touching. Additionally, you can stimulate the prison by examining “treasure chests” and “collection points” in dungeons, or by “licking” blood in battle.

    —Desire for Sleep


    [​IMG]


    During your adventure, Jail can become suddenly sleepy and enter “Jail Sleep Time.” During this sleep, Jail’s desire for sleep is automatically satisfied.

    However! During sleep, players will take on greater damage, and if someone in the party makes a mistake such as becoming unable to battle, the sleep will be disturbed and Jail’s desire for sleep will decrease.

    Play with caution and bring about a sound sleep for the living prison.

    Jail Bonus

    [​IMG]


    Satisfying Jail’s desires will trigger a roulette that will let players obtain a bonus.

    The contents of the Jail Bonus changes based on whether you’re exploring the dungeon or in battle. From status recovery to an increased rare item drop rate, to the generation of a “new floor” in the dungeon, there are also special bonuses.

    Satisfy the three big desires to get various bonuses.

    Those gameplay sections where that creature is chasing you through the dark look tense as fahk! I also didn't realise the game had full 3D models for the enemies. Really hope this one makes it over to the west. (And physical of course!) :)

    Huh? Why not? :( Not a fan of DRPGs?
