If you are a fan of sci-fi themed games and have had been able to get a taste for the genre following the release of CD Projekt Red, then you have more to look forward to in 2021.
Bandai Namco Entertainment has confirmed that Scarlet Nexus, an action RPG written by Takumi Miyajima (of TALES series fame), would launch in store shelves sometime in the middle of next year. This release date is expected to be simultaneous across all platforms – the Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
Some hostile creatures called “Others” descend from the skies in a world where brain functionalities connect people. Threatened of being devoured, the rest of humanity gathered into stronghold cities such as New Himuka, defended by a special group of combatants named the Others Suppression Force (OSF).
Follow the paths of OSF members Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall as two playable characters with their own set of fighting skills. The story of the game can be followed from Yuito but also Kasane’s point of view, giving two different experiences.
Both characters will benefit from the support of party members from the OSF as humanity’s last line of defense. All OSF recruits have specific special powers that Kasane and Yuito can borrow, offering more gameplay possibilities and connecting all of them as one.
