Plug In and Wield Powerful Psionic Abilities in This New Action-RPG From BANDAI NAMCO Studios
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (June 25, 2021) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. has released SCARLET NEXUS for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and PC via STEAM®. Take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall, two new recruits to the Other Suppression Force, and wield powerful psychic abilities to take down an extraterrestrial threat in this thrilling Action-RPG. Interact and experience SCARLET NEXUS’ story from both Kasane and Yuito’s perspective to unwind the twisted strings of fate that bind these two heroes together.
In the far distant future, a psionic hormone in the human brain has granted people with extra-sensory powers, changing the world as we know it. As humanity enters this new era, deranged mutants known as Others begin to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Impervious to conventional weapons, those with acute psychic abilities are Earth’s only chance to fight the onslaught from above and save humanity. Since that day psychics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force, an elite group of fighters and our last line of defense.
Combat in SCARLET NEXUS mixes traditional melee weapons with powerful psionic abilities. Both Yuito and Kasane are able to use their telekinetic powers to throw environmental objects at enemies while also slicing them down with their sword or kunai attacks, respectively. Players will also be taking various squad mates from the OSF out on missions. These party members each have their own unique abilities that, when combined with Yuito or Kasane’s powers, offer powerful opportunities to exploit enemy weaknesses and gain the upper hand in battles. Experiment with different ability combinations and deepen bonds with your squad for more advanced and effective techniques.
“SCARLET NEXUS blends together a powerful futuristic aesthetic evoking classic manga and anime with a streamlined combat system that emphasizes strategic thinking and quick use of both weapons and abilities,” said Stephen Akana, senior global brand manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “An engaging story, wide cast of characters, and classic combat make for the perfect summer escape.”
An anime series produced by SUNRISE Inc. based on SCARLET NEXUS will also be released through Funimation starting July 1, 2021. More information regarding the SCARLET NEXUS anime, including streaming platforms, can be found here: https://snx-anime.net
