Action RPG ‘Scarlet Nexus’ Reveals the Meaning Behind the Name in New Developer Diary

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. In this video, the three talk about the name and how it refers to “connection” and “bonds.” The red lines on the character’s backs are like strings connecting them to this power.

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. 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.
