The developers from Bandai Namco Entertainment participated in IGN’s Summer of Gaming 2020 with their upcoming action-RPG Scarlet Nexus, revealing the official animation & gameplay trailer that you can find above. In Scarlet Nexus you play as a recruit of the Other Suppression Force Yuito Sumeragi. The boy’s life was saved by an elite psionic and he aims to become one himself. Armed with a talent in psycho-kinesis, you will explore the futuristic city of New Himuka and uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities.
Scarlet Nexus combat is front and center in this Scarlet Nexus gameplay trailer. Watching Yuito slice, dice, and wield his psionic powers to weaponize the environment to bring down The Others is on full display in this next gen action game. But combat and Scarlet Nexus gameplay isn’t the only thing to look out for in this Scarlet Nexus trailer. It also shows off the game’s slick animation art style and gives players a more frightening look at the game’s villains, The Others. Constantly tortured by their endless mutation, The Others feast on the brains of the living to calm their pain- and they must be stopped.
Game Director Kenji Anabuki and Producer Keita Iizuka have also participated in the video interview with IGN to discuss the game’s development. The devs spent some time talking about the differences between the current-gen and next-gen versions’ differences.
