Scarlet Nexus Reveals 1-Year Anniversary Illustrations

Bandai Namco has announced that it is the first anniversary of their action JRPG Scarlet Nexus. To commemorate the occasion, the game’s official Japanese Twitter account shared celebratory artwork illustrated by talented concept artist Tamami Ishikawa. It depicts the primary cast with festive lighting and fireworks. Further, each character’s expression is rather fitting, given their personalities.

Congrats to the development team for the anniversary, and here’s hoping there’s more in store for this promising IP.

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.
