Bandai Namco’s upcoming brainpunk JRPG Scarlet Nexus is looking more and more promising as new screenshots and details have been released.
As usual, the goodies come courtesy of the game’s own director Kenji Anabuki, who has been posting metric tons of new images with his own commentary. He even provides an English translation for the fans on this side of the ocean.
We get to see one of the Other enemies we’ll have to fight, Auger Sabbat. Apparently, it secretes saliva from… its legs?
The images also showcases how some of the members of the OSF relieve stress, playing squash, and throwing knives.
The “Mid-Air Dash Attack” sure looks flashy, while another image shows the German localization of the menus.
You can check everything 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.
