Scarlet Nexus director Kenji Anabuki has revealed more screenshots and details about the upcoming cross-gen JRPG by Bandai Namco.
This time around we get to see more characters, including some interesting habits for a couple of them, who seem to relax in rather unique ways.
We also take a look at the powers that we’ll be able to wield in the game. Apparently, they can also be combined between those our characters have by default and those they can borrow from companions. For instance, you can combine Psychokinesis and Pyrokinesis to hurl a burning car in your enemies’ face.
Interestingly, we also learn that the Brain Crash ability is inspired by Yuri’s Fatal Strike from Tales of Vesperia.
You can check them all out below.
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.”
If you’d like to see more of Scarlet Nexus, you can check out the latest promotional video, the latest developer diary, the original trailer, a gallery of screenshots, and another gameplay showcase presented by Anabuki-san himself and producer Keita Iizuka, and more screenshots.
Of course, you should also read my own preview from a few months ago.
The game is coming for PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
