Scarlet Nexus is one of the new games announced for Xbox Series X this past week. In addition, it’s coming to PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One.
Former members of the team responsible for Tales of Vesperia are developing and leading the new role-playing franchise. Players take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, who is armed with a psycho-kinesis ability.
Here’s more on the game’s story from Bandai Namco:
In the far distant future, a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. As humanity enters this new era, deranged mutants known as Others begin to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Impervious to conventional weapons, those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psychics, are our only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity. Since that fateful day psychics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force, humanity’s last line of defense.
Scarlet Nexus does not yet have a release date or release window. However, we’ll likely learn more about the game in the weeks and months ahead. So far so good, though! Be sure to watch the reveal trailer.
