During Tokyo Game Show 2020, Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for their upcoming action RPG Scarlet Nexus. It reveals that the game will feature another (female) protagonist named Kasane Randall, alongside the previously-revealed male protagonist Yuito Sumeragi.
According to Gematsu, players will experience the same story from the different perspectives and viewpoints of both protagonists, though it’s currently unclear if this will require one or two separate playthroughs.
Kasane Randall (voiced by Asami Seto)
- Superpower: Psychokinesis
- Service Record Status: New Recruit
Cool, rational, and indifferent to others.
An elite with an exceptional combat sense and superpower, she was scouted by the OSF and graduated from training school at the top of her class.
Kasane has been having the “red strings dream” for a long time, but she herself doesn’t know what it means and finds it strange.
The trailer also reveals other Other Suppression Force (OSF) soldiers, including the following:
Tsugumi Nazar (voiced by Marika Kouno)
- Superpower: Clairvoyance
- Service Record Status: 12 Years
A shy girl who is bashful in front of strangers.
She gets extremely nervous and tenses up when having a conversation with someone, and gets upset about it later.
She is unexpectedly competitive and does not lose composure during battle, so she has high capability as a soldier.
Gemma Garrison (voiced by Ryota Takeuchi)
- Superpower: Hardening
- Service Record Status: 38 Years
A calm and composed OSF soldier.
Since superpowers become weaker as the brain ages, the OSF is taking measures to suppress physical growth, but Gemma has gradually begun aging and appears somewhat older than the other soldiers.
While that means his retirement is not far off, it also proves he is a reliable veteran and combat expert who has survived countless battles.
Luka Travers (voiced by Chinatsu Akasaki)
- Superpower: Teleportation
- Service Record Status: 22 Years
While he may appear to be a gentle little boy who can be mistaken for a little girl, he is actually a brilliant and collected OSF soldier who can analyze any situation and come to a decision.
He is experienced and high-ranking within the OSF, and has the ability to be counted as one of the “Septentrions,” seven members of the OSF with particularly outstanding ability.
Scarlet Nexus is slated to release for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, no release date has been announced as of yet.
