Bandai Namco is among the video game developers leading the charge into the next generation of home console gaming, with its upcoming original title Scarlet Nexus.
The debut trailer has a cyberpunk future invaded by unstoppable, plant-based monsters that leave entire cities devastated in their wake. Standing in their way is a young man named Yuito Sumeragi, ready to cancel the apocalypse. The trailer shifts to fast-paced, action-packed gameplay as Yuito uses a formidable sword and his powerful psychokinetic abilities to confront the monsters head-on before joining on with an elite squad of fellow psionic soldiers.
In addition to being available for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the title will be released for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as Bandai Namco’s first major title for the next-gen consoles. Scarlet Nexus is also included as part of Xbox Series X’s smart game delivery system, with gamers that purchase the title for the upcoming console also receiving a copy for the Xbox One at no additional cost.
Developed by Bandai Namco, Scarlet Nexus will be released for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC. No release date has been announced at this time.
