You probably last saw Scarlet Nexus a few months ago, before the ‘next generation’ actually began. It seemed pretty impressive then, though Bandai Namco’s aRPG is even better looking now, as you can see in the trailer below.

Play as Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall and experience each character’s unique perspectives on events within the larger SCARLET NEXUS storyline. Team up with a colorful cast of characters and strike down otherworldly enemies with powerful and kinetic psychic attacks in a vibrant “Brain Punk” future that combines Japanese anime and Western sci-fi aesthetics.

The above aired at The Game Awards last night, but that’s not all. The publisher also released the platform list that you’l be able to play Scarlet Nexus on, as well as a release window.
