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 now in summer 2021.
The trailer highlights more of the game’s action and gives us a look at the possible antagonist looking to get his hand on the “Red Strings.” The color red plays a large role in this game, and these Red Strings are a significant power source.
The trailer also highlights the in-game city of New Himuka and how the citizens exist in the world. It’s mentioned that the city, although futuristic, is still developing as new technology is introduced. In the middle of this advancement, players will explore and take in how the environment accounts for the changes. Furthermore, the team mentions that the year 2020 is brought up in the narrative.
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.
