Bandai Namco Entertainment shared the story trailer for the upcoming jRPG Scarlet Nexus.
In a far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. Just as humanity was entering this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a thirst for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our chance to fight the onslaught from above. To this day, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defense.
The game is featuring a dual perspective story, players can start their journey with either Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall, new recruits to an elite group of psionic warriors. Each playthrough features different experiences and scenarios as the heroes cross each other’s paths for shared moments and part ways for unique missions and locales.
Scarlet Nexus arrives in Summer 2021. Check out the official site to learn more about the game.
