BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Reveals Its First Next Gen Title with SCARLET NEXUS


SANTA CLARA, Calif., (May 8, 2020) – Leading video game publisher and developer, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced SCARLET NEXUS™, a new RPG franchise developed by BANDAI NAMCO Studios and led by former members of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s acclaimed TALES OF series. Announced for the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation®5 (or 4) console, and PC via STEAM®, take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, armed with a talent in psycho-kinesis, and explore the futuristic city of New Himuka and uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and physic abilities.

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.

“The next generation of video game home consoles lets the development team realize the full potential of SCARLET NEXUS,” said SCARLET NEXUS Producer, Keita Iizuka from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. “Players can expect visuals and psychic battles with high resolution and frame rate along with fully interactive real-time battles with dynamic animation. Utilizing Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X also means players can enjoy the best version of SCARLET NEXUS regardless of whether they are playing on the next generation with Xbox Series X or Xbox One.”

I was waiting for this trailer in high quality, thanks.

The gameplay looks incredible, the enemies design are interesting and the art style is good enough. Some people are comparing Scarlet Nexus to Code Vein, but this is much more its own thing - like Astral Chain, while Code Vein is an attempt at Anime Dark Souls. This looks way more interesting, gameplay wise, than Code Vein ever looked. Need to see more, but my interest is picked.

anime as a mistake. 

these numbnuts can't keep the most vapid, nonsensical dhire-idea out, without making it into a game.

Now every low tier dev keeps copying those shitty Xenoblade Iris like its someting of value. Jesus, what a trainwreck of a timeline for a animation fan all in all.

I just wish the game didn't trap you in an arena for every single encounter, like in the Devil May Cry series.
