Further, Scenario Writer Takumi Miyajima has been interviewed by the publisher to talk about their approach to writing this title. Miyajima-san gives insight into how the world was crafted alongside the characters and the differences in writing styles when compared to the Tales series. You can check out the full interview on the publisher’s website.

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.
