During the Inside Xbox Live stream a few days back, many new games were announced. One such game that intrigued many with its Anime-style, creepy monster, hack-and-slash gameplay was Scarlet Nexus. Scarlet Nexus is an action JRPG published by Bandai Namco and appears to follow similar art styles to many of its other games, anime characters, with not so anime enemies.
Scarlet Nexus is set in a high tech future, where humans have figured out how to harness the hidden powers of their brain, allowing them to harness psychic powers.
Because of these awesome psychic powers, mankind has gained the attention of some nasty looking monsters, "The Others". These creatures feed on the brains of humans. Not the greatest of visitors you would like on planet earth!
In response to these beings threatening humanity, Earth created an organization of highly skilled fighters, called "The Other Suppression Force" or OSF for short. As an OSF member, you will fight "The Others" to protect humanity on Earth.
In a comment from Bandai Namco's Brand Manager, Stephan Akana, "Scarlet Nexus aims to change the way gamers view Japanese RPGs with a powerful futuristic aesthetic as well as a streamlined combat system that balances fast-paced action with strategic planning,"
The game is currently in development and will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC when it launches.
