Today Bandai Namco Entertainment shared a new video and assets about the upcoming JRPG Scarlet Nexus.
The video features a conversation with director Kenji Arabuki and art director Kouta Ochiai as they talk about the enemies that we’ll have to face in the game, defined “the Others.”
Whether you’re interested in cosplay or not, those are great as they include plenty of artwork.
You can check out the video below.

The game is coming in Summer 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X & S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s how Bandai Namco describes it.
“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.”
