Today during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live show, Bandai Namco showcased a brand new trailer of its upcoming action-JRPG Scarlet Nexus.
The video focuses on the cast of the game and on their powers, which are definitely rather flashy. We also catch a glimpse at characters who we had not seen before.
You can enjoy the trailer revealed during the show below, alongside a version with Japanese voices.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s how Bandai Namco describes Scarlet Nexus.
“In the far distant future, a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and 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 extra-sensory abilities, known as psychics, are our only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity.
Since that fateful day psychics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force, humanity’s last line of defense.
Players will dive into a complex story of bonds, courage and heroism crafted by the minds behind the iconic TALES OF game, TALES OF VESPERIA. Using psycho-kinetic powers, the world becomes an important ally. Lift, break, and hurl pieces of the environment to build attack combos and lay waste to enemies.”
