Action RPG ‘Scarlet Nexus’ Developers Discuss the In-Game City “New Himuka” in New Video
Bandai Namco released a new video for their action-adventure RPG Scarlet Nexus, coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC-via Steam in 2020.
The video features three members of the development team, producer Keita Lizuka, game director Kenji Anabuki, and art director Kouta Ochiai, discussing some interesting facts about the development of Scarlet Nexus. This video highlights the in-game city of New Himuka and how the citizens exist in the world. It’s mentioned that the city, although futuristic, is still developing as new technology is introduced. In the middle of this advancement, players will be able to explore and take in how the environment accounts for the changes. Furthermore, the team mentions that the year 2020 is brought up in the narrative.
Scarlet Nexus is set in the distant future where a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain. This leads to people going extra-sensory powers and thus changing the world. Humanity entered a new era, but deranged mutants known as Others begin to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains.
These enemies aren’t affected by mortal weapons, and so humanity is forced to rely on those with abilities to save the world. Players take on the role of Yuito Sumerage to uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future that is caught between technology and psychic abilities.
