Scarlet Nexus Announced [Updated]
Update (May 8) — Bandai Namco has since confirmed that Scarlet Nexus will also launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
Bandai Namco announced a brand new title, Scarlet Nexus, during today’s Xbox Inside presentation. The action RPG is set to be released for Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2020, with those who purchase the Xbox One version able to upgrade to the Series X version for free. It is being created by former members of the team behind Tales of Vesperia.
Scarlet Nexus is set in the far future after a psionic hormone is discovered that enabled humanity to obtain psycho-kinetic abilities. Coinciding with the new power, mutants known as Others descend from the sky and exhibit thirst for the brains of humans while being impervious to regular attacks. However, those with psionic abilities are able to strike back and are recruited into the Other Suppression Force. Players control Yuito Sumeragi, a new recruit in the OSF based in the city of New Himuka who was previously saved by one of its members.
