A bit of a sleeper hit, Bandai Namco’s Scarlet Nexus is receiving some support today in the form of update 1.08, plus a free demo.
Taste of blood
Bandai Namco’s Scarlet Nexus debuted almost a year ago on consoles and the PC, and has to this point gotten a fair shake of fan and critical acclaim. Now the game is ready for its next version, with Phase 2.
According to the publisher, Phase 2 adds in the Very Easy mode. So if you’re not that great at SC, but you’re digging the story that the action title tells, then this new option is for you.
Released on June 25, 2021, SCARLET NEXUS challenges players to take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall as they team up with a colorful cast of characters to strike down the deranged mutants known as the Others with powerful psycho-kinetic abilities in the futuristic city of New Himuka.Bandai Namco press release
