If you missed the Idea Factory Online Summer Festival, more details for the upcoming Mary Skelter Finale were provided, with its in-purchase inclusion of the never before localized Mary Skelter Locked Up In Love.

Mary Skelter Locked Up In Love was initially released as a pre-order bonus for the Japanese release of Mary Skelter 2 in Japan. The game is set in a high-school setting where the main protagonist Jack interacts with the Blood Maidens from the series and presumably falls in love with one of them.

The story revolves around rumors that those who confess their feelings can escape the living Jail Tower. The game features multiple routes with each of the female characters except for Otsuu and Little Mermaid, who have hidden scenarios.

Mary Skelter Finale is releasing for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on September 30, 2021.

Additionally, pre-orders for the Mary Skelter Finale limited edition will begin on September 1, 2021. This edition contains a collector’s box, steel game case, poster, 3 Disc Original Soundtrack, Art Book, Exclusive Trading Card, Hardcover Novel Box Set, and a Box Set Graphic Sleeve.
