Latest Scarlet Nexus trailer shows off slick gameplay

Bandai Namco has released a brand-new trailer for the upcoming action RPG, Scarlet Nexus. While the game itself is still a bit of a mystery, the gameplay certainly looks very slick indeed. Looking like a fast-paced, aerial and acrobatic version of Dark Souls, Scarlet Nexus is sure to have won some new fans with this trailer.

From the original announcement, we know the game is set in the future and that some humans have developed psionic powers. At the same time, we know that the mysterious mutants, known as Others, have descended from the sky.

Resistant to traditional damage, the Others have to be taken down by these psionic powered humans who form the Other Supression Force (OSF).

Lifting the lid on the plot, Bandai Namco says;

The OSF is composed of the only people able to exterminate the Others, blessed with exceedingly powerful “brain power” and considered as true heroes by the population.

Every year, more and more recruits are joining the ranks of the OSF to take part to the endless battle between humanity and the Others.

Among them, Yuito Sumeragi, a bright and positive-minded recruit with a kind heart. Second son of the prestigious Sumeragi family, his ancestor was the founding father of New Himuka.

He endured an intensive training to be able, one day, to help the citizens of his city and rescue them, as he was once saved himself from an Other by a member of the OSF. Since then, he cherishes the ear cuff he received on that memorable day.

Scarlet Nexus will launch for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
