Led by Kenji Anabuki and Keita Iizuka of the Tales of Vesperia team, Scarlet Nexus is an intense, story-driven action RPG from Bandai Namco Studios releasing on June 25. Set in a far distant future, the world has entered a dangerous new era where deranged mutants called the Others terrorize and hunt humans.
To protect people in this perilous world, the Other Suppression Force (OSF) recruits psionics — special humans with acute extra-sensory talents – and uses their unique psychic powers to exterminate the Others.
The Scarlet Nexus combat system provides you with the ability to fully utilize your party’s psionic powers in different ways. The game’s two main playable characters, Yuito and Kasane, both use Psychokinesis.
Psychokinesis users can move objects with the power of their mind, so many elements in your immediate environment can be leveraged in battle as a weapon.
Scarlet Nexus builds in even more psionic possibilities with the Struggle Arms System (SAS). With SAS, Yuito and Kasane can link with a party member to leverage their psychic ability and combine it with their own.
SAS can be activated to boost your party’s battle potential – for example, tapping into Hanabi Ichijo’s Pyrokinesis can enhance both psychokinesis and melee attacks with her pyrokinetic flames. Gemma Garrison’s Sclerokinesis can be used to provide short-term immunity from damage for a temporary defensive advantage.
By using SAS strategically, you can connect with party members with different psychic abilities to gain the upper hand in battle.
Scarlet Nexus’ combat system also allows for a wide range of options to match different playstyles. Equipping various SAS Plug-Ins to party members can help improve stats, enhance physical attacks, boost psychic abilities, or even upgrade your psychic powers for an even more powerful attack combo in battle.
OSF members are not only equipped with special psychic powers and weapons to be battle-ready – they can also customize cosmetic options to fight the Others in style.
With hundreds of options for fresh OSF cadets, Yuito, Kasane, and the members of your team can mix and match with different outfits and cosmetic items for a unique look.
