Bandai Namco revealed new details about the action-adventure Scarlet Nexus, in development for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam.
The publisher revealed that 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 from it, 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.
Scarlet Nexus is in development by a team that had previously worked on Tales of Vesperia. The game focuses on the narrative and development of the characters and world through gameplay.
“The next generation of video game home consoles lets the development team realize the full potential of Scarlet Nexus,” said Scarlet Nexus Producer, Keita Iizuka from Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. “Players can expect visuals and psychic battles with high resolution and frame rate along with fully interactive real-time battles with dynamic animation. Utilizing Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X also means players can enjoy the best version of Scarlet Nexus regardless of whether they are playing on the next generation with Xbox Series X or Xbox One.”
“Scarlet Nexus aims to change the way gamers view Japanese RPGs with a powerful futuristic aesthetic as well as a streamlined combat system that balances fast-paced action with strategic planning,” said Stephen Akana, Senior Brand Manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “Led by an extremely talented team at Bandai Namco Studios, including members from fan-favorite title Tales of Vesperia, Scarlet Nexus combines years of game development experience with the excitement and creative freedom of the power behind the next generation of home console systems.
During gameplay, players will assume the role of the main protagonist Yuito Sumeragi who has the power of psychokinesis. He finds himself on the frontline of this fight against the Others.
