Bandai Namco released an overview video for their action-adventure RPG Scarlet Nexus coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC-via Steam on June 25, 2021.
The video goes into great detail about the game’s world, characters, and enemies. More specifically we learn about enemies known as “Others” who invaded Earth. Humans with extra-sensory abilities were named psionics and they were the only hope for humanity to survive. These humans have been scouted by the Other Suppression Force, OSF, and seen as heroes.
Every one is bonded together through the Psynet, but this comes with government monitoring and control over the citizens. Everything is under close watch and observation. This will most likely be an issue as players uncover more about the company they work for and the invading creatures.
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.
