Bandai Namco’s cross-generation JRPG Scarlet Nexus is just a couple of months away, and more assets have been shared.
Director Kenji Anabuki has been showcasing more images on Twitter, also kindly providing a translation of his commentary in English.
As usual, we get to see abilities, powers, characters (and what they do in their time off), costumes, and even the Brazilian Portuguese localization.
We also get to see a few gameplay videos including Haruka and Wataru Fraser in action.
Next, is a look at Suoukyo, the most important city in New Himuka and the location of the OSF headquarters. It’s a political, economic, and cultural center. There are many holographic signs decorating this colorful city where the citizens live in peace.
The city is designed taking inspiration from the nineties and various aspects of Tokyo.
If you’d like to see more of Scarlet Nexus, you can check out the previous promotional video, the latest developer diary, the original trailer, a gallery of screenshots, an earlier gameplay showcase presented by Anabuki-san himself and producer Keita Iizuka, more screenshots, and the latest gameplay.
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 on June 25 and is even getting a TV anime adaptation by acclaimed studio Sunrise.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s how Bandai Namco describes it officially.
“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.”
