Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a new trailer of its upcoming JRPG Scarlet Nexus.
The trailer showcases both an anime cutscene on top of in-engine ones and gameplay, providing another look at Bandai Namco’s first cross-gen work.
Specifically, the cutscene we see at the beginning of the trailer is the opening animation that we can expect to see at the beginning of the game.
Incidentally, we also learn from the accompanying press release that the animation is by renowned studio Sunrise.
You can check it 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.”

Scarlet Nexus is coming for PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
