Scarlet Nexus Shares Early Concept Art; “Red Strings”

The director of the Bandai Namco-developed action JRPG Scarlet Nexus, Kenji Anabuki, recently participated at the Computer Entertainment Developers Conference, in which he gave a lecture about the aforementioned game.

And during the lecture, Anabuki shared concept art for Scarlet Nexus back when it was simply known as “Red Strings.” The tone and characters presented here do significantly differ from the final release, though you can make out protagonists Yuito and Kasane near the image’s background.

Scarlet Nexus is set in the distant future where a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain. This leads to people gaining 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.
