BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Reveals Its First Next Gen Title with SCARLET NEXUS
Leading video game publisher and developer, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia today announced SCARLET NEXUS, a new RPG franchise developed by BANDAI NAMCO Studios and lead by former members of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s acclaimed TALES OF series. Announced for the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and PC via STEAM®, take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, armed with a talent in psycho-kinesis, explore the futuristic city of New Himuka and uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities.
In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Impervious to conventional weapons, those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psychics, were our only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity. Since then, 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.
