Today Bandai Namco is releasing the PlayStation version of the demo of its cross-generation JRPG Scarlet Nexus and is celebrating with new screenshots.
As a matter of fact, the demo is already available for PS5 and PS4 in Europe and Asia (You can find the European version on the local Playstation Store), while it’ll launch on the North American one later today. Of course, the version for Xbox has been up for a week already. No demo for PC has been announced.
Your progress in the demo won’t transfer to the final version, but it does grant some bonuses for that.
On top of the demo news, we get a a batch of new screenshots and art showing quite a few supporting characters,
We see OSF platoon leaders Seto Narukami and Kodama Melone, operators Haruka and Wataru Frazer (respectively for Kasane and Yuito’s units), Yuito’s older brother Kaito Sumeragi, and his father, Joe Sumeragi.
More screenshots show SAS powers and items you can manipulate with Yuito’s psychokinesis, drums and even bulldozers.
If you’d like to see more of Scarlet Nexus, you can check out the opening cutscene, the latest gameplay from a few days ago, two gameplay trailers, another showcasing locations, the previous promotional video, the original trailer, a gallery of screenshots, an earlier gameplay showcase presented by Anabuki-san himself and producer Keita Iizuka, more screenshots, and even more 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.
